Muscle strength begins to decline more rapidly after 50 years of age, at a rate between 1.4% to 2.5% per year, with more rapid losses after the age of 65 years. Low levels of lower limb strength are associated with functional limitations in daily living, including an increased risk of falls. Strength training is now widely recommended for older adults to increase muscle mass, strength, and ultimately, independence in activities of daily living. Strength training can be accomplished in a number of different ways, depending on the physiological, functional or performance goals.
Training at Kieser is designed not only to train all the major muscles and muscle groups, but also to always strengthen flexor and extensor muscles. This helps to correct muscular imbalances and help clients improve posture and discomfort.
