This week: Strength training, hospital school, Dino Babers

Fitness guidelines for adults recommend both cardiovascular, or aerobic, exercise and muscle-strengthening activities. Upstate exercise physiologist Carol Sames explains why strength training is so important, especially for seniors, and various ways to achieve it.

Sames also addresses the value of seniors improving balance and flexibility.

Also this week, teacher Mary Ellen Michalenko tells about the school within the Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital, and Syracuse University head football coach Dino Babers talks about fitness and motivation. Tune in this Sunday, October 20 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for more.
