Muscles are the engines of the body. Unfortunately, muscles lose size and strength with age, resulting in physical weakness and variety of degenerated problems. You can avoid muscle loss by doing regular strength training. You can replace muscle tissue you've already lost regardless of your age. You can replace a rather large amount of lost muscle in a relatively short time through a simple strength training exercise program.
YES...WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE?
Schedule your workouts ahead of time in your daily-planner like you would a meeting or appointment. Try writing the day and time of your workouts a few weeks in advance, and if you need to cancel one, reschedule it right away!
