  1. Great question, Tim! Resistance training alone will increase strength and muscle mass in older adults. I’ve attached a few references below. Since older individuals are anabolically resistant and require higher per-meal protein doses to achieve similar rates of muscle protein synthesis (compared with their younger couunterparts), I’d advise consuming slightly higher daily and per-meal protein. I’d suggest 1.6-2.0 g/kg/day and 0.3-0.4 g/kg/meal (high-quality protein sources preferred). Thank you, Tim! I hope this helps.
