9780736074452: Bending the Aging Curve: The Complete Exercise Guide for Older Adults

As we age, it’s natural to see some loss of strength, flexibility, balance, and aerobic endurance. But today’s aging population isn’t willing to just sit back and accept these declines. They’re looking for ways to maintain a high quality of life throughout their older years. Bending the Aging Curve: The Complete Exercise Guide for Older Adults offers a systematic approach to designing exercise programs that will help older adults bend or straighten these curves of decline, resulting in more years of strength, vitality, and independence.

Bending the Aging Curve provides fitness professionals with a multifaceted periodized training program specifically for older adults. With this book and DVD package, you will find the tools you need to help your clients slow the physical decline that can accompany aging:

·Training strategies for improving body composition, flexibility, bone density, muscular strength and power, and cardiovascular fitness that can be customized to fit each client

·73 translational exercises that simulate everyday activities and help older clients to translate their new strengths into improved daily function and increased independence

·A series of tests that will allow you to assess your clients’ strengths and weaknesses, design programs that address their needs, and keep them motivated during their training

·A spreadsheet in which you can record clients’ test results and view their percentile rankings for their sex and age groups

·Videos of the translational exercises that let you and your clients see these unique activities in action to ensure accuracy and safety

·Video case studies of four sample clients that show the progression from testing to targeted training to the translational exercise cycle to help you understand how to design programs that meet your clients’ varying needs and goals

This one-of-a-kind resource presents a scientifically substantiated and practically proven training system that can extend the vitality of our aging population. Signorile offers an engaging explanation of the research behind his diagnosis and prescription model while maintaining a focus on the practical components of program design. You will learn to use tests to diagnose your clients’ needs and then prescribe training cycles with the appropriate mix of work, active recovery, and skill practice to maximize functional improvements. The photos and step-by-step instructions for each of the tests and exercises found in the book and the video clips on the DVD make it easy to quickly implement this training system with your clients.

Maintaining independence as we age depends on a multitude of factors. Bending the Aging Curve offers a comprehensive approach to designing exercise interventions that address all of these factors. With its targeted strategies, you’ll be able to help your clients stay active, energetic, and self-reliant, regardless of their age.
