A good role model for active aging: Hidekichi Miyazaki is the Worlds oldest competitive sprinter, revealed here at 105. Mr. Miyazaki is called the “golden Bolt” because he emulates Usain Bolts lightning bolt pose.
Another takeaway for me from the new study, is that the results of just following the nationwide standards are okay compared to the high strength group. So getting more people to follow the suggestions would help a lot. Norway has a reputation for having a more active population, and this study shows that it settles. But if you want an included bonus, tossing in some high intensity a number of times a week is an excellent idea.
Clarence has actually been advocating the advantages of training hard as soon as or two times a week, and going simpler the other days, for years. I first got motivated to attempt high strength training about 20 years earlier by following his website.
A new study from Norway compared 3 groups of older adults for five years : the control group was recommended to follow national guideline for exercise (and 80% reported they abided by this), another group did moderate strength consistent state training, and a 3rd group did high intensity training two days a week. The Norwegian standards for exercise are similar to those in the US (30 minutes of moderate activity recommended most days). After 5 years, there was a decrease in danger for all-cause death of about 5% for the high-intensity group compared to the controls. However the moderate strength group had no reduction compared to the controls. This is perhaps to be expected, because, per the national standards, the controls were also moderately active, comparable to the moderate intensity group.
The health advantage observed for the high strength exercise group makes good sense in contrast to previous outcomes, for instance, I explained results revealing the benefits of exercising at higher intensity here: those who achieve the greatest intensity level procedure in METS on a workout stress test have actually considerably lowered risk of death than unfit individuals.

I have been active in the mechanical CAE field for years. This blog site chronicles my experiences in remaining active regardless of these bumps in the roadway.
