Abstract:

Miriam E. Nelson's research created worldwide news when the results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. After a year of strength training twice a week, women's bodies were 15 to 20 years more youthful. They had less fat and more muscle; bone loss was prevented or reversed; their strength and energy increased dramatically; and they showed surprising gains in balance and flexibility. No other program -- whether diet, medication, or aerobic exercise -- has ever achieved comparable results. Strong Women Stay Young shows how any woman can achieve the same benefits at home, in a program tailored to her individual needs. A bestseller in its first edition, it has now been revised to be even easier to use. It features eight streamlined exercises with fully illustrated instructions; new supplemental moves for the back, abs, and more; a complete program to do at the gym; plus an all-new chapter for men. Significant improvements are seen after just four weeks. Filled with inspiring quotes from women aged 35 to 92 who transformed their lives with this program, Strong Women Stay Young provides the information and motivation to make a real difference in women's lifelong health.
