Answer: Build your muscle strength!
A recent review published in the European Journal of Internal Medicine reported muscle as a strong predictor of mortality.
Muscle strength was labeled as a modifiable risk factor
In other words, you have control over how much or how little muscle strength you have, so you can change your risk by changing your muscle strength!
Age is no excuse
- People in their sixties with little muscle tone can learn to lift weights and create muscle mass that models twenty year olds!
- You can be as strong in your seventies and eighties as you were in your twenties and thirties!
- Take control of your body now and live a strong and vital life!
Tips to getting started:
- Start low and go slow: If you haven’t been physical active in a while, don’t jump into working out at full throttle or you will risk injury and burnout.
- Get a coach: Hire an expert to help teach you the right way to build muscle strength.
- Make it a habit: Lifting weights can become as natural as brushing your teeth. Make time your schedule for your weight lifting sessions and stick to them until you no longer need a reminder!
