never been physically active.Recently the two Maidas took a series of tests to compare their strength Maida Lois didn t hold back I got competitive, she admits I tried hard.It didn t help Maida outscored her daughter on three of the four tests These days, she does her own lifting After all, she tells Maida Lois, I m stronger In high school, Evelyn wore a size 16 At age 30, she had her firstchild and her weight climbed to over 200 pounds Then she came to work at Tufts University I started doing aerobics and got down to 160 pounds I was thinner, but complete flab, she recalls What s , her weight loss stalled Inspired by her colleagues research and the success stories all around her Evelyn started strength training, and dropped the last 30 pounds.Now 38 and the mother of two, Evelyn recently attended her twentieth high school reunion She recalls a thrilling evening Some of my girlfriends never got back in shape after having kids and there I was in a slinky blackevening dress, size 6 Miriam E Nelson, Ph.D., author of Strong Women Stay Young, is one of the Tufts University scientists who developed this remarkably successful exercise program Her research created news worldwide when the results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.Dr Nelson s study followed 40 postmenopausal women for a year All were healthy, but sedentary none was taking hormones Half the volunteers the control group simply maintained their usual lifestyle The others came to the Tufts University laboratories twice a week and lifted weights.Most women begin to lose bone and muscle mass at about age 40 in partbecause of this, they start to slow down And that s exactly what happened to the women who didn t exercise One sedentary year later, their muscles and bones had aged, and they were even less active than before The women who lifted weights changed too but in the opposite direction.After one year of strength training, their bodies were 15 to 20 years youthful They became stronger often even stronger than when they were younger Without drugs, they regained bone, helping to prevent osteoporosis Their balance and flexibility improved They were leaner and trimmer, though eating as much as ever The women were so energized, they became 27 percent active.No other program has ever achieved comparable results.What strength training can do for you A challenging, progressive strength training program can build muscles and increase strength in women of all ages But Miriam Nelson s study provedthat the benefits go even further Besides the great gains in strength, here swhat strength training does Halts bone loss and even restores boneEach year after menopause, a woman typically loses one percent of her bone mass even during the first five post menopausal years Over time, she may develop osteoporosis, a condition in which bones become so porous they easily break Strength training stopped the clock here too The women who didn t exercise lost about 2 percent of their bone density over the year of the study But the women who strength trained not only didn t lose bone, they gained 1 percent Improves balanceOur ability to stay in balance declines with passing years As a result, falling becomes a significant hazard later in life, especially if bones are weak The women who didn t exercise showed an 8.5 percent decline in balance over the study period In contrast, the women in the strength training group improved their balancing ability their test scores went up by 14 percent Helps prevent bone fractures from osteoporosisThe improvements in strength, bone density and balance have special significance for women because they dramatically reduce the risk of fractures from osteoporosis This is a serious problem a woman of seventy faces 30 percent odds that she will break her hip if she lives another twenty years.Hormones, calcium supplements and medications offer a degree of protection from bone loss However, strength training not only builds bone, it cuts the risk of fractures by improving strength and balance to help prevent falls What s, all these benefits come without worrisome side effects Trims and tightensParticipants in the JAMA study were asked to maintain their weight over the year Though the scale didn t change, their appearance did Instead of dropping pounds, the women who exercised lost inches Helps control weightStrength training is a dieter s best friend First, it promotes aerobic activity, which burns calories Second, it boosts metabolism That s because muscle is active tissue and consumes calories stored fat, on the other hand, is inert and uses very little energy Energizes and revitalizesAfter a year, the non exercise group became 25 percent less active But the women in the strength training program were 27 percent active than before It makes sense The stronger you are, the easier it is to move The most exciting part of this study was something harder to measure the transformation of the volunteers They didn t expect their bodies could change much, not at their age But after just a few months they were stronger, trimmer and energetic than they ever dreamed they could be again and they were thrilled.Who wouldn t be Features of this book Strong Women Stay Young is based on a scientifically tested exercise program developed at Tufts University, so you can rely
