You don’t quit lifting weights because you get old, you get old because you quit lifting weights!🥊
Who says you have to stop lifting weights once you hit a certain age? Don’t let yourself succumb to what everyone else thinks is “normal.” As a physical therapist at @boostsportskc it pains me when I hear the lines “I used to lift weights when I was younger...” or “I had to stop lifting because my doctor said it’s bad for my joints...” Unfortunately, your body doesn’t stay resilient to injury because of what you USED TO DO.🥊
Sure we may need to modify some things as we age but that doesn’t mean we leave the weight room completely. The moment you quit loading and training your body to stay strong is the moment you take one step towards the grave (it’s true!) Research has shown us weakness is hugely correlated with death and smaller life spans! Never stop lifting & keeping your body strong.🏋🏼♀️
