The Barbell Prescription

By Jonathon M Sullivan MD PhD FACEP SSC and Andy Baker SSC

Jonathon M Sullivan MD. PHD. FACEP. SSC and Andy Baker SSC have written a seminal book in the history of resistance exercise literature. Indeed, in the history or health and fitness literature!

The first part of the book goes into detail of how the human muscular system affects not just how we can move and interact with the world around us, but how it affects, in so many ways, the health state of our bodies. And especially how losing that muscle impacts our health and mobility as we age.

The second part investigates how barbell training affects the aging body and how it is the most effective form of training for the aging person.

The third part, gives examples of programs for the older trainee.
