Well Light would be relative to them haha of course. I recently got a personal best 405 on my deadlift about 3 weeks to a month ago so thats pretty awesome. I have missed these forums.
Well, in that case, I can't agree with you. It should be challenging to them. That would probably mean that it would be light relative to you, but not to them. The trainee should always be challenged. And there is nothing special about 65, or any other age. They just need to progress at their own pace.
Congrats on the 405 pull!
Another reason why I would recommend aquatics is because its very very low impact. Like I said I wouldn't prefer to train older 65 plus clients but if I did I would recommend that. Im currently doing kinesiology in school....and it is not easy....jungle doc you've done kinesiology right?
Swimming is good for some cardio for people who have bad joints, but it won't substitute for resistance work. Remember, that it's impact that gives the benefit for osteoporosis! Swimming doesn't do that.
I'm glad that you're in school. No, I didn't study kinesiology, but that is in my retirement plan!
