Muscle Loss & Aging: It’s true, as we age we start to naturally lose muscle mass. What’s shocking is that loss begins around 30 yrs old and can average 3-5% every decade. This epidemic is called sarcopenia and the best intervention is exercise, specifically strength training. Exercise has a direct influence on the neuromuscular system, endocrine system (hormones), and protein synthesis resulting in the physiological changes needed to maintain (or gain) muscle mass. For the overachievers try high intensity, full body resistance training for the biggest impact. Other great ways to prevent and treat is whole body vibration (vibration plates), a balanced diet, and leading a healthy lifestyle.
