row of dumbellsThe Advanced Stay Strong, Stay Healthy program was developed in 2009 by a team of MU Extension specialists who wanted to meet the increasing need for a follow-up program to the 8-week Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) program.

 

The goal of the program is to build on the fitness base acquired from SSSH by adding new and more complex exercises. The neuromuscular system quickly adapts to stressors and loads, and must be challenged differently for gains in strength, flexibility and balance to continue. Therefore, it is necessary to alter the exercise routine regularly. Advanced SSSH is designed to challenge older adults in new and different ways, to help avoid staleness and plateaus, and to improve activities of daily living.
