STOPPING MUSCLE LOSS AND BUILDING IT BACK

Do you have any of these signs of muscle loss?

  • You feel weak and have little energy to get through the day.
  • Your body has lost its shape, and you feel more saggy and flabby.
  • You don’t have the strength to do the things you once did easily.
  • You are noticing weight gain in areas you didn’t before.

Age-related muscle loss, called sarcopenia, is a natural part of aging. After age 30, you begin to lose as much as 3% to 5% per decade.
The good news is that you have the ability to slow down muscle loss. Here’s how:

  1. Progressive resistance training (PRT) 2-4 times per week.
  2. Eating adequate protein throughout the day.

Most people mistakenly believe that just being active or doing only cardio workouts will keep them strong and fit.
There is no substitute for PRT, but it must be done right.
Lifting weights that are too light, doing random workouts, or doing the same routine for years won’t slow down your muscle loss.
Don’t let another week or year go by with more muscle loss.
You’ll continue on your downward spiral of becoming weak and frail on your way to losing your independence.
