Sarcopenia, also known as muscle loss, is a common condition that affects adults 40 and older
Updated: Sep 9
Today on 30 Minute Fitness Science Sunday. We discuss sarcopenia
While it can decrease life expectancy and quality of life, there are actions you can take to prevent and even reverse the condition.
Do you want the good news or the bad news first?
Let’s start with the bad news
Your muscle mass will decrease by approximately 3–8% per decade after the age of 30. This decrease in muscle mass is also accompanied by a progressive increase in fat mass, changes in body composition, and is associated with several conditions, including type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and osteoporosis. Wow, that’s a lot to take in.
Now, here is the good news
Full-body resistance exercise training and cardiovascular activity have been shown to increase strength and reduce the effects of Sarcopenia.
Here's your solution:
3x/week full-body resistance training. NOT split workouts like “chest/shoulders” or “back/bis.” I'm talking about FULL BODY resistance training involving all your major muscle groups. Starting a 3x/week Full Body Training routine is Step #1 of how to build muscle when you are over 40.
