Keeping Muscle Strong through Middle Age and Beyond

Keeping Muscle Strong through Middle Age and Beyond

It is inevitable that as we pass 30 and advance towards middle age and more senior years, we can experience a degree of muscle loss. As we get older, it can affect mobility and increase the risk of trips and falls, which are the number one cause of serious injuries among seniors. Sarcopenia is a condition that can cause a drop of three to five percent of muscle mass each decade after the age of 30 among sedentary adults. By being alert to signs of muscle loss and making some simple lifestyle changes, older adults can greatly reduce their risk of developing sarcopenia related complications.

Good morning everyone! In case you haven't heard there is heavy traffic due to the Lion's Gate Bridge being closed in both directions due to an incident on the bridge. With this in mind PLEASE give yourself EXTRA TIME when running errands or coming to appointments. Stay aware and stay safe out there! :)
