The scientifically proven strength-training program that turns back the clock for women aged 35 and up--from the famed research labs of Tufts University Miriam E. Nelson's research created worldwide news when the results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. After a year of strength training twice a week, women's bodies were 15 to 20 years more youthful. They had less fat and more muscle; bone loss was prevented or reversed; their strength and energy increased dramatically; and they showed surprising gains in balance and flexibility. No other program--whether diet, medication, or aerobic exercise--has ever achieved comparable results. Strong Women Stay Young shows how any woman can achieve the same benefits at home, in a program tailored to her individual needs. A bestseller in its first edition, it has now been revised to be even easier to use. It features eight streamlined exercises with fully illustrated instructions; new supplemental moves for the back, abs, and more; a complete program to do at the gym; plus an all-new chapter for men. Significant improvements are seen after just four weeks.

Now revised, this new edition will include: A streamlined program for new readersNew state-of-the-art scientific informationNew options and more than a dozen supplemental exercises for expanding and individualizing the programSome information for men interested in this dynamic program All the original reader-friendly aspects remain.
