Counteracting Loss of Muscle Mass

Counteracting Loss of Muscle Mass

Whether we want to admit it or not, as we get older, we begin to lose muscle mass. There are certain places it happens the most over time. We can lose muscle mass in places like our arms, shoulders and legs. It is a natural part of the aging process. That’s the bad news. Here’s the good news…it is also important that exercise and strength training can somehow defeat this. In other words, the more you exercise, and the more you develop muscles, the more you increase your basic metabolic rate and your ability to burn calories. It will keep you strong and maintain your flexibility.
