Deboo draws on his extensive background as a physical therapist to provide a straightforward entry point into strength training for adults, especially the ones who might believe they are too old for it. His book dispels myths about strength training, dismantles some of the accessibility barriers at traditional gyms, and lists the many benefits of strength training, which go far beyond improved musculature. Featured exercises are clearly illustrated, beginner-friendly, and focused on patterns or imbalances that affect many people as they age. The book groups the routines into 10-minute blocks so that users won’t feel overwhelmed about how to integrate the exercises into their lives. He also offers modifications or variations that either make the exercises more accessible for people with mobility challenges, or that amplify the difficulty for more experienced fitness enthusiasts who are seeking ways to stay strong and fit for life.
VERDICT An indispensable strength training guide for adults interested in reducing injury risks, building strong bonds, and developing habits that enhance their longevity in seamless ways.
