I love the idea of intercessory prayer while working out. Thanks for your comments.

Great article. Just the inspiration to get back to the fitness center for at least two days of strength training weekly.

This article was not what I expected, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Great motivation for me to get started on some much-needed strength training before it's too late. Thank you!

Interesting article, but the picture says How to Lift Your Way to Strong Bones. I expected a program for lifting geared toward seniors or beginners.

For the soreness, you don't know how to breathe during exercise and a warm up or cool down that significantly reduces soreness, also helps in lung expansion to impress your doctor. Arms out to the side, while doing a toe rise, lift your arms (angel wing style) up over your head, inhaling on the way up, hold for 15-30 seconds, exhale on the way down (reverse of what you just did). I found I have 1/3 the soreness due to anaerobic reactions when I do this. (I hate his idea of diet, but part of Dr. Stillman's 15 minutes in his 14 day shape up program). And for some of us with the resistance/strength training, the Hail Marys are necessary just to get us through it :) ! But to hear your praise (altho a stubborn lil cuss about what's good for you) is motivating and wonderful. Great article.

I so loved the last paragraph because that is exactly how I feel, too. At 64 I am seeing many friends who are just a bit older than me succumb to various illnesses and health problems, many of which are secondary to poor nutrition and refusal to exercise. They have reached their "point of no return" where their impairments due to lack of exercise are now their reasons for not exercising. My greatest motivator to exercise is seeing it as a means of thanking God that I still can. Because I know that the day will come when I can't, I rejoice in doing what I still can.

anyone else having trouble with the large sized ads on this article? I have tried to close it and just about everything I can think of but it sits over half the article on two of the pages

I have cardio 6 days a week. Starting in Jan this year I started circuit training,. It's doing a lot of machines one right after the other . Just last month kicked it up with an added weight lifting session. I like to say I am 70 going on 50.
