Holding Back the Years - Strength Training

  • Wednesday 14:00 - 14:45 / Friday 10:00 - 10:45
  • Trainer : Stuart Corsar / Morgan Evans / Liam Buchan

This class is aimed at those wishing to combat the ageing process as it helps you to be physically active, doing exercises that target keeping bones strong & healthy with the aim of reducing the risk of Osteoporosis, a condition where your bones lose strength.

This class will combine weight-bearing exercise with impact and muscle strengthening exercise which are thought to be most effective at keeping bones strong.

Weight-bearing exercise with 'impact'

Weight bearing exercise with impact involves being on your feet and adding an additional force or jolt through your skeleton. This could be anything from walking to star jumps.

Muscle strengthening exercise

To strengthen your muscles, you need to move them against some resistance. Increasing muscle resistance can be done by adding a load for the muscles to work against, such as:

  • a weight in your hand
  • using an elastic muscle resistance band
  • using your own body weight

When your muscles pull on your bones it gives your bones work to do. Your bones respond by renewing themselves and maintaining or improving their strength.

As your muscles get stronger, they pull harder, meaning your bones are more likely to become stronger.
