Dr. Jeffrey Guild discusses weightlifting for older people in this podcast episode. He emphasizes the importance of lifting heavier weights for power and strength as we age, debunking the misconception that older people should lift lighter weights.
He advises against lifting lightweight with high reps and encourages older people to gradually increase resistance to prepare their tissues for heavier weights.
Although lifting heavier weights can stress the tissue more, Dr. Guild warns that this should not deter older people from building power and strength.
