Once You're Over 50, The Workouts 

20 Year-Olds Do Won't Help You.

You need workouts specifically designed for YOU that build strength and muscle efficiently, while compensating for age-related limitations and injuries, so you can live the fullest life possible in your later years.

Let's face it - we're not kids anymore.

Once you get over 50, you start feeling the effects of age-related wear and tear on your body. 

Injuries from the past are coming back to haunt you with chronic aches and pains, and new injuries are much harder to recover from. 

Sarcopenia, or age-related muscle loss, is naturally causing us all to lose strength and muscle mass every year.

And when it comes to working out, by now you can probably tell that the strength training routines that 20-year-olds use aren't cutting it.  Your body is different now.

It can all be very frustrating and discouraging. 

Now that the kids are grown and you're established in your career, you've got the time and resources to do fun stuff and create lasting memories - but will you be physically able to?

Listen, you deserve to be able to truly live and enjoy your later years, not have to suffer through them.

Strength training is something we need in our later years more than ever.  

It's the only way to counteract that dreaded sarcopenia, and it's essential to keep us at our highest possible level of pain-free function

And you’ll love that feeling of achievement and self-mastery that comes from the process of successfully becoming stronger and more healthy and fit.

I can guide you with a strength training program that is tailor made for YOU, as you are right now, that you'll be able to sustain forever to stay strong, resistant to injury, and full of energy, without wasting time or getting injured, so you can live life to the fullest.

Once I got over 50 myself (I'm over 60 now), I started to feel the same effects of aging that you're going through right now.  And I had to figure out how to change my own workouts to overcome these limitations.

So I called upon the knowledge I had gained over the last 40+ years, and created a unique, easy-to-use strength training program that combines strength training with physical therapy techniques and is perfectly suited for people over 50.

And now I want to make this program available to you.

    The Stay Strong Forever video course is one of the best courses on Prudent, Productive, Practical & Purposeful Strength Training that I have ever seen. It articulates the fundamentals of science-based strength training in a manner that is sensical and easy to understand. It provides a step-by-step approach that will provide the learner the opportunity and tools to design an individualized program that they will be able to follow and make adjustments to - Forever!

    The Stay Strong Forever Program is golden. For those over the age 50 like me (62…and receiving A.A.R.P. info on a weekly basis), it’s the go-to option for either starting a new fitness training regimen or continuing to train intelligently and still make progress while avoiding injuries.

    The program is comprehensive yet easy to learn and implement. Dave has covered every aspect clearly and concisely in his instructional videos and accompanying documents. The most practical advantage of the program is it being schedule-friendly; only twice per week if you give it 100% effort (and effort still remains a key factor for achieving results in any type of program regardless of age).

    Don’t hesitate. Get the program. Do it. It works.

    I've had the distinct pleasure of knowing Dave Durell since the mid-1990s.  Since that time, he has firmly established himself as a strong voice of reason in the strength and fitness industry.

    Dave's latest contribution to the industry is in providing safe, evidence-based training to the graying population . . . of which both he and I are members!  His Stay Strong Forever video course represents his ideas in action, a true culmination of his decades of experience in working with diverse individuals. 

    The course is really well done, professional and informative while laced with countless practical applications; he's a natural in front of the camera which helps him to deliver his message in a user friendly format that's void of the unnecessary complexities that are often associated with such types of courses.  

    Having been employed at the collegiate level as an administrator, an educator and a coach since 1983 – including the past 30+ years at Princeton University – it’s my professional opinion that Dave is a highly credible resource on strength and fitness for the older population and I recommend his course on that topic without reservation.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    How is this course different than other strength training courses on the internet? 

    You can find plenty of "muscle building" training courses on the internet, that's for sure.  But the training methods they show may be unsafe or orthopedically unsound, and some of the exercises may be problematic for older people because it hurts to do them.  So you can build some muscle, but you kill your joints long-term and get injured periodically.  That's no good, because as I'm sure you know it takes us older folks longer to recover.

    On the other end of the spectrum, you can find "corrective exercise" or rehab-based courses, perhaps even created by a physical therapist, to help alleviate painful conditions, correct bad posture, things like that.  But you won't build any appreciable strength or muscle mass with that type of program.

    The Stay Strong Forever Master Course is different because it combines both "building" exercises and "rebuilding" exercises, which is exactly what people over 50 need.

    In addition, if a strength training course was created by somebody in their 20's or 30's, that person isn't going to know first-hand what us older folks are going through.  They haven't thought up the "work-arounds" in the gym for arthritic joints, decades-old sports injuries, or lumbar disc problems, because they've never personally had to work around those things.  

    I have.  I'm in my 60's (62 as I write this), and have taken those things into account when creating this course.  It's designed to be the only strength training workout plan you will ever need for the rest of your life.

    I've had left knee surgery and right shoulder surgery, and haven't been able to lift heavy weights in years. Will this program work for me?

    I created this course with this scenario in mind.  One reason is I've worked with thousands of physical therapy patients and personal training clients who were over 50 and were hungry to find a way to overcome physical setbacks and get back to living life to the fullest, and they didn't want to be held back by past injuries or surgeries.

    The other big reason that getting back to lifting heavy weights after surgeries is fully explained and demonstrated in the course is that I've been through it myself!  At 60+, I've been through my share of injury problems, including overcoming shoulder surgery and 2 abdominal surgeries (1 of which was for cancer).  And there was no way I was going to let that adversity stop me from living every day of whatever time I have on earth to the fullest, so I figured out how to regain my strength the fastest and most efficient way possible.  And everything I learned is in this course.

    Whether you need to work around an injury, regain lost strength after a major injury or surgery, or just rebuild injury-prone areas of your body, everything you need to do it is right here in the Stay Strong Forever Program.


    You talk about working out once or twice a week for under 45 minutes. I've always worked out 4-6 days a week for an hour or two. How can I get results with such short, infrequent workouts?

    The workouts are short (under 45 minutes, including warming up and stretching) because I've designed them to be as intense as possible while still being safe.  These workouts are the strength training equivalent to laying in a tanning bed to get a suntan, while working out for an hour or two is like trying to get a suntan on a partly cloudy day in the Fall - you might be able to do it, but it's not the most efficient way.

    And the workouts are performed only once or twice a week to allow for sufficient recovery.  The workout itself doesn't make you stronger; it stimulates an increase in strength and muscle mass, and then your body produces those increases during the recovery period.  If you work out again before you're fully recovered, you won't get any benefit from your last workout, because you didn't give yourself the time your body needs to make changes happen.

    When you're 25, it's easy to recover from hard workouts (and just about everything else!) quickly - but us older folks take longer to recover from physical stresses, and we absolutely must account for that when designing a workout plan if we want results without wasting time.  And the less time we spend in the gym, the more time we have to enjoy the finer things in life.

    It seems like many of us have been asking ourselves the wrong question when setting up a workout plan.  Instead of asking "how much exercise can I tolerate?" the Stay Strong Forever course is built on the question: "how little exercise do I require?"  And after decades of research and experience, I know the answer is one or two brief (but intense) workouts per week.  

    How is the course personalized just for me?

    Starting with Module 1 of the course, I guide you through designing your own personalized workout plan, based on a number of considerations.

    First, you will be plugging in exercises based on your available equipment and personal preferences.  If you're new to weight training, or haven't worked out in a long time, you'll be guided to select exercises based on the movement being performed, and then you pick exercises in your workout facility that match those movements.  (I take you through your 1st four workouts step-by-step in Module 3).

    You'll also be adding (or avoiding) exercises to your routine based on your own unique health/medical history.  If you have had shoulder problems in the past, we'll add exercises to rebuild your shoulders; if your shoulders are fine but you're having issues with low back pain, we'll focus on that.  These exercises are all demonstrated and explained in-depth in Module 5.

    In addition, we'll work around any physical limitations you're currently dealing with.  For example, if you've had a total knee replacement, there are certain leg exercises you should never do, and others that are fine to do.  All this is thoroughly covered in Module 7.
