You’re never too old…
There’s a great post in the Daily Mail today talking about acting legend Sheila Hancock loving weight training at the age of 84 after only recently taking it up to combat muscle wastage in her arms.
Pretty cool eh.
Quoting the Daily Mail:
I started going to the gym to get fit for a movie about climbing a mountain, which we filmed for two months solid, and now I’m addicted to it. This year I got a personal trainer and he got me into lifting weights.’
Discussing the level of weightlifting she has been doing, the actress, who is starring in Sky1 drama Delicious, said: ‘I don’t know the size of the weights I do but they are great big discs on the end of the pole.
Lifting weights has restored muscle that had gone.
I couldn’t lift my suitcase now I can.
Huw Edwards from UK Active was also quoted saying that two strength sessions a week is great for over 65’s to combat muscle loss and prevent slips trips and falls.
Of course we love this here at SCE, our coaches work with people aged 4 to 94 and we’ve been preaching the benefits for the elderly for many years.
But it’s great that the media are catching on. Very cool indeed.
