Is muscle the antidote for inflammation? Is it the key to longevity? Is the solution muscle? As we age you can actually be the exact same weight as you were 30 years ago. Here's the difference, if you are not actively putting on muscle, you are actively losing muscle.
"We talk about being over -fat but really the problem is being under-muscled. Muscle is the largest organ of the body...." Dr. Gabrielle Lyon
I am not discussing this to scare you or push you in to understanding the value of strength training. I am sharing this information with you because I've seen it time and time again. I know first hand the importance of putting on solid dense muscle tissue to help with inflammation, cortisol levels, hormones, bone density, and much much more as shared in these short clips.
Getting started can be overwhelming. It can be confusing and a daunting task. In reality it can be a very small portion out of your day. In fact I'm seeing incredible success with students starting in their 50's, 60's, and 70's committing to a few body weight exercises 20 minutes 3 times a week. It can be that simple!
