Why weights? Three reasons to make time for strength training:

1. Stave off osteoporosis. Resistance training increases bone density, which can prevent age-related loss.

2. Keep your metabolism revved. Muscle trumps fat for calorie burning—add more, burn more.

3. Look slimmer. Pound for pound, muscle takes up less space than fat. Boost muscle and you'll appear thinner.
