Myth-Busting: Am I 'Too Young' or 'Too Old' for Strength Training? | PD Podcast Ep.69
Can you be too old or too young for strength training? At PD, our coaches have clients of all ages and we truly believe strength training can be beneficial for anyone. Listen in as coaches Alex, Austin, and Sue go in-depth on what age they started training, if you could ever be too old for strength training, and when/how adolescents should be introduced to weight training.
As always, it is our goal not only to supply you, the listener, with valuable insights on the topics or questions but also to plant some seeds for further research and thought. Without further ado, let's get into today's episode.
