It’s no secret that working out helps us improve our quality of life.
But, did you know that you might be focusing your efforts in the wrong direction?
Most people that begin a new exercise program start with the form of exercise that has the lowest barrier of effort. What I mean by this is, most people will focus their effort on walking, jogging, or running. Something any of us can do.
What this looks like in a gym is countless treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes with people on them walking and pedaling away.
The unfortunate truth is, this form of exercise, although great for your health and cardiovascular system, does little to nothing for your muscles.
Over the last few years, it has become abundantly apparent that strength training should be emphasized more as we age.
It’s easy to get caught up in weight loss and losing weight, but what might be even more important, is how much muscle mass you have.
So if you haven’t yet, start lifting some weights. Start small and go slow.
I’ll wrap it up there for now, next week, I have some information about protein that I think you might be interested in.
As always, if you have questions, drop a comment or email me.
