Resistance weight training coupled with increased Protein & Chromium intake in your 60s and 70s wards off severe muscle loss that weakens posture, balance and the entire muscular systems.
Strength training can help people build muscle mass to assist in the fight against the debilitating effects of old age until they reach 80, a new study says.
“We know that there is accelerated muscle loss as we get older,”
Scott Trappe, director of Ball State’s Human Performance Laboratory, said in a university news release.
“The best way to keep our muscles from shrinking is through resistance training, which allows our body to maintain muscle size and strength as we go through our 60s and 70s.”
