    Review quote
    ""Wayne Westcott's and Thomas Baechle's advice is cutting edge, medically sound, and is the key to staying active and feeling healthy long after you've turned 50. It is just what this doctor ordered,"" Nicholas A. DiNubile, MD- Orthopaedic Consultant to the Philadelphia 76ers and Pennsylvania Ballet- Author of "FrameWork" and Executive Producer and star of PBS special, Your Body's FrameWork "Dr. Wayne Westcott has, once again, outdone himself, presenting in an easily understandable style the principles of safe and effective strength training for seniors. The importance of this aspect of fitness training for the older population cannot be overstated. Improving health, strength, and fitness while enhancing function and avoiding unnecessary injuries through strength training are particularly important in this age group. We once again applaud the latest effort by Dr. Westcott, one of the leading authorities on strength and fitness," Lyle J. Micheli, MDClinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Harvard Medical SchoolO'Donnell Family Professor of Orthopaedic Sports MedicineDirector, Division of Sports Medicine, Children's Hospital Boston
