Muscle Mass and Your Heart

You dont have to be a body builder, to maintain a healthy muscle mass.

Is having more muscle better for men and women ?

USE it or Loose IT ! 

From our 30’s onwards, muscle mass naturally declines.

This is known as sarcopenia. 

As a result,  the percentage of fat in your body will increase if you don’t do anything to replace the lean muscle you lose over time. Strength training can help you preserve and enhance your muscle mass at any age.

Strength Training can decrease your bad cholesterol (LDL)  by 13% to 23%, and reduce your triglycerides by 11% to 18%.

Building muscle, strengthens bones. This can result in decrease risk of falls and fractures as you age. 

Exercise is the most powerful intervention to address muscle loss.

Muscle burns more calories, so helps with weight management.
