Does Weightlifting Prevent Premature Death?

If you are closer to retirement than college it has been found that if you start lifting weights twice a week you are much more likely to enjoy a longer and healthier life.


Latest studies have involved circa 30,000 senior adults over a period of around 15 years to examine the relationship between weightlifting and mortality.

We couldn’t believe how effective these 2 supplements were!

The results were staggering and utterly surprised us. It seems that senior citizens of 65+ were much less likely to die if they weight trained twice per week. This it seems is a result of a ‘better running body’ from stronger muscles and bones. However, it isn’t just the body which benefits, the cardiovascular system becomes stronger and it also seems to give you a better chance of warding off cancer.


If you are new to lifting, always ensure that you gradually work your way in to a new regime to avoid injury, in many cases, less can mean more. Therefore, 2 bouts of exercise per week is often more than enough which will enable your muscles to recover and in turn grow and become stronger.
