Fountain of Youth, Right There in Your Gym

I don't know about you, but I am dying for them to find a fountain of youth. Turns out that there is something you can do in the gym to help ward off aging: Weight lifting.

Weight lifting is not only great for keeping you looking good, but it is also great for keeping you youthful too! A new study on has found that women who strength-train 3 times a week have more of a type of growth hormone that counteracts age-related muscle loss and protects bone density. Producing growth hormone gets harder with age, and pumping iron is the best way to slow the decline.

So get to it and pump some iron -- You can thank me down the road. Here's a great starter arms workout video so you can begin today!!!

vsakakeeny - Power Yoga, like Ashtanga is definitely considered strength-training - you are lifting your own body weight!

Anyone know if this is true for yoga too? I do power yoga and it builds muscle as much as when I lifted weights. I think adding weights to my workout routine would overstress my muscles with the yoga...

I just started that 'starter arms' workout this morning, I'm not kidding! I've doing a lot of lower body weight lifting for a couple of months now, and it really helped slim my thighs. But this is an extra perk!
