As you get older, you will have to eat less and exercise much more in order to compensate for your slowing metabolism. The solution is to do resistance training on a regular basis which will help to increase your metabolism and make your bones more dense. Any time is a good time to begin your very first resistance training program to get your daily exercise. Resistance programs have even been done, as documented in a well-known case study, by senior citizens that were in their 70s and 90s. It actually improved their ability to move, their physical strength, and their bone density. The effects of arthritis can also be helped in a positive manner by doing this form of exercise.
