Miriam Nelson was one of the first researchers to prove the connection between muscle density and the ability of the bones to absorb calcium. This book documents her research study which involved women between the ages of 50 and 80, and lays out the foundation for a weight training program that increases strength and prevents (and in some cases, reverses) osteoporosis.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553378481, Paperback)

The sad truth of all exercise programs is that you have to follow them to get results. This one is no different, but its well-designed, progressive strength-training promises the fountain of youth in two 40-minute sessions a week. An extravagant claim? Yes. But many women, especially those between age 40 and 80, can achieve certain measures of youth: denser bones, better balance and flexibility, more strength and energy than women years younger. The guidelines in Strong Women Stay Young are backed with solid--though small--studies and thorough explanations of how aging changes your body. Authors Miriam E. Nelson and Sarah Wernick include clear charts, instructions, and exercise illustrations featuring women who carry extra pounds and years gracefully.

Miriam E. Nelson's research created worldwide news when the results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. After a year of strength training twice a week, women's bodies were 15 to 20 years more youthful. They had less fat and more muscle; bone loss was prevented or reversed; their strength and energy increased dramatically; and they showed surprising gains in balance and flexibility. No other program -- whether diet, medication, or aerobic exercise -- has ever achieved comparable results. Strong Women Stay Young shows how any woman can achieve the same benefits at home, in a program tailored to her individual needs. A bestseller in its first edition, it has now been revised to be even easier to use. It features eight streamlined exercises with fully illustrated instructions; new supplemental moves for the back, abs, and more; a complete program to do at the gym; plus an all-new chapter for men. Significant improvements are seen after just four weeks. Filled with inspiring quotes from women aged 35 to 92 who transformed their lives with this program, Strong Women Stay Young provides the information and motivation to make a real difference in women's lifelong health.… (more)
