Every other athletic program in the world, including other Japanese gendai budo, use some form of strength and conditioning to prevent and rehabilitate injury, prolong active years, and create people who are more useful in general. People hoping to maximize their years in Aikido may benefit similarly.
This sounds like great advice, but a minor nit: I never saw anything like this when I was practicing karate, or heard of a karate dojo that did this.
