Strength Training and the Older Athlete

STRENGTH TRAINING AND THE OLDER ATHLETE by Team Member Suzanne Amos

As an aging athlete, and relatively new triathlete, I am forever conscious of the fragility of my health and of my body. It is a rare morning where I don’t lie in bed and mentally scroll through my checklist: How am I feeling today? Head (I suffer from as-yet unexplained Vertigo)? Check. Shoulders? Check. Back (thank goodness that, while everything else might be suspect, I don’t suffer from back issues. Thank you Pilates)? Check. Glutes? Let’s not even go there. You get the picture. None of this is made better by the never ending stream of so-called health information that is thrown at me on a daily basis. I mean, seriously. Does Mark Zuckerberg actually know what I do in my spare time?? Eat this. Don’t eat that. Cardio will kill you. Not doing cardio might kill you faster. Running will save your life. Running will destroy your knees forever. Puleeeeeze. Just. Make. It. Stop.

It was with this somewhat fed up attitude that I read an article about the importance of strength training in the fall edition of Triathlete Magazine Canada. Now, this is not news. In the constant cacophony of health info., strength training has been a constant refrain. Especially for women over 50. But for any of you who have dared to step into the weight room of your local gym, it is not an easy place to be as a middle-aged woman. I have toyed with weight-training many times over the years and I usually end up hurting myself. Mostly because I don’t really know what I am doing and there is nobody there to help. Plus, in my experience, if you want help – you had better be a tiny, gorgeous nymph. I am not any of those things.

But, back to the article. It was an interview with Canadian-born, Boulder, CO-based strength coach Erin Carson. In it, Carson talked about being able to access your power and maintain balance in the body. Without balance, of course, it is difficult to access the strength we have spent so much time working on. And it resonated with me. So off to gym I went. This time, to a different gym – a newish place in East Toronto with a holistic approach to training. I told them not to tell me that cardio is bad, because cardio is my happy place – and, much like my one cup of coffee a day – it was a deal breaker.

So far, it has been six weeks of progressively feeling stronger. I am leg pressing 225 and feeling pretty good on my bike as a result of the hamstring work I’ve been doing. Fitting yet another type of training into an already packed sched has not been easy. But I had already decided that this is my year to fight back. I am fighting back against that afore-mentioned daily mental check list; against injury; against menopause; and against all of the people who have dared to suggest that I can’t do this.

Of course I can, because #iracelikeagirl.
