This is how you stay fit for life
#stay #fit #life Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
This is perhaps one of the most important articles I’ve ever written to help you understand the importance of resistance training in not only slowing down the aging process but also improving your overall metabolic health. We know this is important as studies have shown that over 75% of those over 65 do not exercise enough to stay healthy.
But the key is to understand the type of exercise that will give you the most value for the time invested. If our job required us to do hard physical labor, we wouldn’t need exercise. Formal practice is only required because most of us have long since stopped engaging in physical labor. Modern society has made it possible for us to obtain food and shelter with relatively little effort. So we need exercise to balance this out if we hope to optimize our physical health.
I want to share my experience with you so you don’t make the same mistakes I made 50 years ago. To me, the evidence is crystal clear: as you get older, you need to engage in some form of resistance training to offset the degeneration that typically accompanies aging and reduced physical activity. You can do cardio when you have the time, but not at the expense of building lean muscle mass. This is mainly because aging accelerates muscle breakdown.
