It starts in the mid-thirties and between the ages of 50-70. If you have this condition you can lose 30% of your muscle mass, leading to frailty, falls, fractures, and hospitalizations. Unfortunately, walking is not enough to stop the problem.
The good news is you can stop and reverse the process. All you have to do is lift weights to fatigue. If this is something you haven’t done before, then just find a pro to help you! They can tailor a program for any level and make it easy for you to get started.
Reversing the condition can take four months of serious exercising. Take action now so it’s easy to continue enjoying your life. And…you can start at any age.
Talk to your doctor about sarcopenia and if they say it has a high glycemic index look for a new doctor.
Lifting weights is also good for your brain.
