Strength Training As Self-Defense For Seniors

This is a true story that occurred in November 2019. An 82-year-old woman successfully defended herself during a home break-in in Rochester, N.Y., afterwhich the 28 year-old intruder was taken away by ambulance. Willie Murphy started lifting weights when she was 56 years old. Every senior should follow her training example.
