This week join Liam, Jesse, and our newest strength coach Rosie as we discuss the importance of strength training during menopause.
Menopause is the most important time in a woman's life to do resistance exercise.
During the menopause years, women typically experience double the muscle loss of their younger years. Between the ages of 50 and 60, women can change from a half-pound average muscle loss per year to a one-pound average muscle loss per year (largely due to estrogen reduction). Bone loss follows a very similar pattern.
Strength training (along with sufficient sleep and protein intake) can help maintain and even increase muscle mass and bone density during this same time period.
At TNT Strength we recommend brief, intense, infrequent strength training workouts as the foundation of a total fitness program. This style of training is safe efficient and effective for everyone.
