Fight Age-Related Muscle Loss

Fight Age-Related Muscle Loss

 
As you age your muscle mass naturally dwindles.This process, called sarcopenia, begins as early as 20 and can ramp up to .4 lb loss in muscle each year by age 50. 

There is a solution to fight off sarcopenia and to maintain your muscles: exercise your muscles with an assortment of resistance training modalities. Consistency is key – the muscle building benefits of each workout ends after about 48 hours.

Keep challenging your muscles and they will repay you with ageless strength!  You'll want a weight heavy enough to do 10 - 15 repetitions to fatigue.  This helps build strength and burn FAT!!

Proper form and exercises for you is very important.  It's always best to learn from a certified coach and trainer.  This will help you fast track your results and avoid injuries.  Do it right the first time!!
