Lately, I have been placing more emphasis upon personal strength training. "Pumping Iron" is becoming a passion of mine. I now teach six classes a week at the Tehama Family Fitness Center (4 yoga, 1 tai chi, and 1 spin cycling); therefore, I'm in the gym quite frequently. The TFFC has a complete range of strength training equipment, including a large free weight room.
I've done strength training with weights since I was 13 years old. My physique was ectomorphic in my youth, but decades of weight training have put quite a bit of muscle mass on my body. I would recommend a strenth training program for all older persons in good health.
