Anti-ageing researchers agree that strength training is the number 1 way to reverse the ageing process. That’s because as we age, we lose muscle mass and this negatively affects so many other health variables including posture, bone density, metabolism, weight gain, reaction time, strength, endurance, balance, agility and more. So if you can slow down the rate of muscle loss, you can reverse or at least slow down the atrophy of these systems.
So if you’re not doing any resistance training right now, you’ve got to start. Just two times per week is enough to see some really positive change.
