As this image indicates, it really isn’t your age that matters….but what you do while you are aging.
I came across this excellent article how chronic exercise preserves lean muscle mass. It really stresses a current trend…
Our modern lifestyle has led to more people having sedentary jobs and fewer recreational activities. Thus, living longer does not necessarily mean living well, as one-third of aging Americans become disabled.
But there is good news, because as the article goes on it mentions aging is NOT the culprit!
… more accurately related to the effects of sedentary living
This doesn’t mean you need to become a triathlete, but you do need to get off that couch….sorry.
