Living Longer Stronger: The 6-Week Plan to Enhance and Extend Your Years Over 40
by Ellington Darden
Darden, a well-known fitness author whose books have sold more than three million copies, offers a program for men who are giving way--fitness-wise--to middle age. Always a proponent of strength training, Darden continues that predilection here, arguing that strength training becomes more important the older one gets since stronger muscles can alleviate much of the stiffening and discomfort associated with aging. The heart of the book is a six-week strength training program designed to reduce body fat and improve cardiovascular performance as well as develop muscles. Because banging around the weight room at the fitness club three times a week--no matter how intensely--is not enough to redefine one's fitness level, Darden also provides nutrition guidelines and advice on sleeping and reducing stress. This is a potentially beneficial program filled with solid, commonsensical advice presented in a clear, conversational style. Illustrated with black-and-white photos.
