Muscle loss is related to age and is a normal process. After the age of 30, you start losing muscle from 3% to 5% per decade. Most of you will lose about 30% of your muscle mass during your lifetime.
Less muscle means more weakness and less mobility, resulting in a decrease of your functional capacity and your physical condition. This creates a vicious circle where it increases the risk of falls and fractures.
The good news is that there is a solution to muscle loss. Systematic exercise is the most important tool on our hands to increase our muscle mass. What we need is personalization, consistency, dedication and individual goals, but it is never too late for muscle reconstruction and maintenance. Of course, there is always a danger of reaching the other end. That is why the best scenario is a personal trainer next you.
Building muscle is not just about strength, you also need muscle power. Muscle power, i.e. how fast and efficient you move, has to do with how easily you will be able to meet your daily routine activities and not so much with how strong you will become.
Strength training – also known as weight training or resistance training – is an exercise designed to improve muscle physical condition, by using dumbbells, elastic bands, a pillow or even your own body weight.
ATTENTION: What is important to know, is that strength training doesn’t necessarily mean weightlifting. A well designed strength training session keeps your metabolism active after exercise, much more than after aerobic exercise and helps boosts your metabolism.
Those who follow strength training in combination with a balanced diet lose almost twice the weight compared to those follow aerobic exercise alone.
Strength training also helps you gain a better body posture and benefits your balance and coordination. The stronger the muscles the better your balance. It also increases energy levels and improves your mood and the quality of your sleep, which is an important indicator of physical and mental health.
