You’re Not Too Old For ... Strength Training With Dumbbells

In our ongoing video series with trainer Julie Diamond, we focus on strength training, balance, and core work — vital for staying fit and healthy as we age.

Strength training not only helps maintain muscle mass, it also helps build and strengthen bones. There are many ways to incorporate strength training into your exercise routine, including weight machines, free weights, and resistance bands.

In the video above, Diamond takes us through two dumbbell exercises that challenge both strength and balance. Balance, one of the more overlooked factors of physical fitness, is key to preventing slips and falls.

In this video, Diamond uses a dumbbell to increase the challenge of a Russian twist, a move that brings your awareness to your core and really gives internal and external obliques a workout. You can also use a medicine ball, but beginners may find that hands at prayer is challenge enough.

Want more core work? Try these moves. Want more fitness videos? Visit our YouTube channel.
