Publisher Comments:

Turn back the clock in just two at-home sessions per week!

This scientifically proven strength-training program:

Replaces fat with muscle

Reverses bone loss

Improves energy and balanceRevised--new streamlined program!

The scientifically proven strength-training program that turns back the clock for women aged 35 and up--from the famed research labs of Tufts University

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.

Now revised, this new edition will include:

A streamlined program for new readers

New state-of-the-art scientific information

New options and more than a dozen supplemental exercises for expanding and individualizing the program

Some information for men interested in this dynamic program

All the original reader-friendly aspects remain.  STRONG WOMEN STAY YOUNG is fully illustrated, and the step-by-step instructions are accessible and clear. Inspiring stories of women of all ages who transformed their lives with strength training are sprinkled throughout. Strong women do stay young--and reverse bone loss, increase energy, improve

balance and flexibility--and this is the book to tell them how. -->

Synopsis:

From the Tufts University Research Center on Aging comes a newly streamlined strength-training program for women that turns back the clock--replacing fat with muscle, reversing bone loss, increasing strength and energy--all in just two at-home sessions per week. Illustrations.
