Research has shown that regular resistance training can reverse aspects of aging at the gene level. People begin to lose muscle starting by the age of 30. By the age of 50, aging can rapidly change our bodies.
Sarcopenia is a condition of age-associated muscle degeneration. Middle Aged adults lose 3% of their muscle strength every year, on average, including decreased numbers of muscle stem cells, mitochondrial dysfunction, a decline in protein quality and turnover, and hormonal deregulation improves the muscle's longevity profile at the molecular level. It is well known that long-term resistance training is associated with a lower risk to age-associated morbidity and mortality.
Active Aging is not about holding onto our youth, but instead its about maximizing the opportunity of aging. Its about maintaining independence, staying active, staying strong, and putting in the effort. We need to strength train three to four times a week using a mixture of machines, free weights, elastomers, and instabiility equipment when appropriate. Muscle maintenance is the key!
