Training to retain muscle as you age

https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/lif...ticle36816684/

Interesting study, done over 30 weeks. I'm finishing up with Eat Lift Thrive so I think I will do it again, but with 2 heavy and 1 light day like in the study.

Thanks for this link, I've been trying to figure out how much strength training I need, just turned 57 and things definitely don't work like they used to.

Sue - what did you think of "Eat Lift Thrive"? I saw Bret Contreras gave it a great review and his comment about her glute circuits intriqued me. But I wanted to look at the book before purchasing. B&N in Ellicott City did not have it, nor do Howard, Baltimore, Harford county library systems carry the book. I can't remember if you have "Strong Curves"? so I'm wondering how it compares to that and the New Rules books. TIA!

I don't have Strong Curves, but Sohee was mentored by Bret Contreras and works with Layne Norton. I feel like ELT is like Strong Curves minus Bret (tbh a lot of the things he says, turns me off). ELT contains sample programs for 2, 3 and 4 days a week - she doesn't recommend lifting 5 or more days - and they are all very glute-focused with squatting, bridging, hinging and rotational exercises in every workout. But she wants readers to design their own program, and the book has a whole chapter on program design. I have the Kindle version, and it has a handy "exercise finder" with hyperlinks to all the exercises.

I'm on the last week of the 3-day/week sample program which she says is the "sweet spot" for her. It's 12 weeks long, divided into three phases. Each workout has 7 exercises, done in straight sets, and they take me a little over an hour because I rest a full 3 minutes between sets of heavy exercises. I'm going back to supersetting to try to shave off some time.

The glute circuits (optional on off days) look killer, so I haven't done them. She has a bunch of them on her Youtube channel if you want to check them out.

Joni, they didn't mention it. I do think it's very relevant.

Good question. No. But following the links I found the study was open to all sexes.

Would also like to know if the volunteers were non-exercisers when they started, or people who exercised regularly. I could not find that info from the links I followed.

I quickly read through. My take was that it might be muscle confusion that created the gains. Too bad they didn't separate into groups by hormone levels. If your hormones are closer to youthful levels you will have better results.
