How old is too old to start weight training?

Strength and Muscle

Research on aging and exercise has shown that people in their 90s can improve both strength and muscle mass with weight training. You don't have to wait until you're 90 to start, though. The sooner you get going, the better.

I started working out at about 19 and at 20 I was working at chicago health club where I witnessed customers working out in there 70's and above and that has instilled an ethic in me to continue I now am 52 and still work out with the same Frequency and I love it . I wont stop until the end which may never come the way I feel.... Work out at any age......
