Too Old To Build Muscle?

One of the comments I hear from friends and people I meet is that "I'm too old to build muscle." They use this as an excuse not to exercise. Some even go so far as to say "At my age why bother?".

Well research has shown that there's really no age that's too old. A study in the Journal of Clinical Interventions in Aging showed that resistance training just twice a week  for two months dramatically improved the muscle strength and mobility in both men and women between the ages of 77 and 97.

Yeah you heard right building muscle at the age of 97! So what's your excuse? Resistance or strength exercises can greatly improve your life in a very short period of time. This means everything from getting out of your recliner or car, climbing stairs and yes saving yourself in an emergency.

So again what's your excuse?
