    I am 78. Very fit.I had a small breakdown a year ago, and lost weight rapidly. I don’t seem able to put weight back on. I need to build up muscle. I am active, walk my bearded collie twice a day and hardly ever use the car. I hope you can help me. I have power steps and a bench to work on. Regards. Trish
