From the LiveStrong website:

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends people over 50 strength-train all major muscle groups at least two and up to four times per week to gain muscle. Allow at least 48 hours between strength-training workouts for full recovery. Overtraining can cause injuries and setbacks in your plan, which can lead to muscle loss. It’s also important not to under-train. For optimal health and fitness, you must do cardio training every week as well.
