Great, great, great. (Can it be a sentence without a verb?) I am over sixty, and this podcast brought home many things for me. One is, that on my own , I discovered that High, low, HIgh works for me. My body won't let me do hard workouts every day.
Second, balance. Boy, if I could tell you the number of folks my age who cannot stand on one foot, for even a few seconds, and then close their eyes without then falling over- and the hope you offer them with strength training...wonderful. This shows why we need "experts". I have no idea what my maximum muscle percentage is; but I do work out until I can "feel it". Boy, what a lot of information in one podcast. Thank you Doc!

Excellent stuff, but not practical in application for most of us. Few seniors I know will go to a gym 3X/wk, hire a trainer, (if you can even find a good one) and learn how to use the equipment, etc. Most people simply won't stick to complex exercise routines that require supervision and special gyms/equipment, assuming it's affordable, or even available in your community.

It is so cool that you have invited Dr. Marcas Bamman from the University of Alabama Birmingham for the podcast. I had sent an email after listening to the podcast, but there was no response; guess I was not lucky enough.
