What is Sarcopenia?
How Can High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Prevent Sarcopenia?
The only way to slow down, reverse, or prevent the process of losing muscle mass is to continually stress your muscles. HIIT training stresses your muscles. When you push your muscles to fatigue, they will respond by getting stronger.
However it is important that you are not just working out one particular muscle group because the other muscle groups will start to atrophy or get sarcopenia. It’s like the old saying, “If you don’t use it, you will lose it!” Because the 50-year-old is the new 40-year-old, it is critical that muscles be continually worked out.
F45 provides a work out that will fatigue different muscle groups different days of the week. Because it is a scientifically-based program, you can work out 5 to 7 days a week and not cause overuse injuries but all the muscle groups will be utilized.
