Sarcopenia is muscle loss as you age. Who gets it? Everyone, unless you work to maintain muscle mass.
Adding weight training, weight lifting or some type of resistance exercises after age 35 is important. After age 60 studies have revealed that you have to work harder to maintain your muscle mass and strength. Keeping your muscles strong will reduce the risk of falling which in turn reduces the risk of fracture. Resistance training will help to increase your metabolism and aerobic capacity.
Cardio is important but don’t forget to integrate weight lifting into your workout regiment.
