Weightlifting for Seniors

Did you know that a new trend for some senior citizens is to lift weights?

Before trying this, I recommend approval from your physician.

Weightlifting is a good way to strengthen the body, increase flexibility and to give the senior reassurance that he or she is still strong and virile.
