The Importance of Your Strength in the Battle Against Aging
One of the questions I get asked all the time is:
How important is it to do strength exercises as part of your overall exercise activities?
Before I answer the question, I want you to know that there is a free gift for you below which I think you will like, so make sure you watch the video or read the full article.
So back to the question about Strength. I believe it is very important and that is why it is the first “S” in my Exercise BASICS Formula (the second “S” is for Stretching)!
Regular exercise has many benefits and one of those is that it helps us maintain our strength, especially as we get older, because it slows down the loss of muscle mass which starts at about age thirty. This muscle loss, known as sarcopenia, continues at the rate of between a half of one percent and one percent each year and accelerates as you move into your late fifties and early sixties. That means you can lose between fifteen and thirty percent of your muscle by the time you reach sixty!
But it doesn’t have to be like this! You can significantly postpone this process and with it the battle against aging. Of course, to achieve this you have to exercise and you need to include muscle strengthening in your exercise program. This may initially sound like something you cannot or would not like to do, but I promise you, it is not as hard as it sounds.
I have developed a series of eight easy-to-do strength exercises. These are the same easy-to-do strength exercises which I usually do twice a week and you can do them, too, starting today. These exercises should become an important part of your exercise regimen along with your aerobic exercise like walking, running, swimming or biking.
