Get Strong, Stay Young

Here I am again touting the benefits of exercise. I do so from personal experience and dedication.

Six months ago I started Upper Body Strength Training. I've been lifting light weights in 12 different exercises twice a week since September of 2009. When I first started I was using 3 and 5 pound weights, doing 3 sets of 8 reps. Now, six months later, with a nicely toned and firmer upper body (shoulders, arms, pecs, upper back) I look sleek. But more importantly I FEEL FABULOUS! I'm now lifting 8 and 10 pound weights, 12 reps, 3 sets.

Eating good, healthy food and getting exercise that includes cardio work and strength training has been my fountain of youth. I swear by it because I feel great!
