    In order to compete at a competitive level for any sport it is recommended to do weights sessions twice per week. A person’s overall weight is expected to go up through these sessions however the build up of strength and muscle is more important to a person’s performance than being of an overall lower weight. Sarcopenia or muscle wasting begins after the age of 30 so it is most important to try to build and maintain muscle mass from this age onwards. For those who are more elderly free weights and body resistance are commonly used and can be very effective.
