Study: Women Who Do Strength Training Live Significantly Longer 

A new study from CedarsSinai and other global researchers (using data from 400,000 people) evaluated the differences in the effects of exercise between men and women. It found that women who do strength training exercises two to three days a week are more likely to live longer and have a 30% lower risk of death from heart disease, compared to women who do none. The researchers noted that “we don’t have many things that reduce mortality in that way, and that both aerobic and weight training should be prescribed for women. While the study finds that even small doses of exercise are beneficial for everyone, the data shows that women need less exercise than men to get the same longevity gains. Women who did moderate intensity exercise, such as brisk walking, five times a week, reduced their risk of premature death by 24%, compared to 18% for men.
