~Muscle Building--Another advantage of Weight Training

Life Strength

Men and women reach peak strength around 20 to 25 years of age. After age 25, strength generally decreases an average of 1% per year. Therefore, a 65 year old would only have about 60% of the strength they had at age 25. Individuals who are more active, or those who continue to strength train, can considerably decrease this tendency for declining muscular strength.
