MUSCLE GROWTH AS YOU GET OLDER
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER 30??
From a cosmetic point of view, skeletal muscle gives you form, shape, and makes you feel good. However, there are other benefits that you’d probably appreciate after the age of 30.
WHAT ABOUT SARCOPENIA?
After the age of 30, most people start to loose up to 4% of their muscle per decade.
This is known as sarcopenia and comes with a whole host of potential health problems as you age
including diabetes, weight gain, dementia, depression, etc.
The good news is that weight training can prevent and even reverse sarcopenia.
What Are The Symptoms of Sarcopenia?
SO, WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO GROW
AND PRESERVE MUSCLE?
USE IT OR LOSE IT!!
When you get older, especially after the age of 25,
the body needs more reasons to hold onto muscle.
The body is basically saying:
“USE IT, OR LOSE IT!!!!”
Weight training is the answer!!
Weight Training (and other forms of resistance training) over the age of 30 provides enough of a stimulus to maintain and grow muscle.
By keeping this up, you significantly reduce the risk of developing sarcopenia as you get older.
