Get Motivated For A Healthy Start To 2013!
Sunday, December 30, 2012
If meeting your weight goals, or fitting into your ‘skinny-jeans’ isn’t motivating you to exercise regularly, recognize the physiological reasons that are so important to your long-term health.
From age 40 to 50 on, we start to lose 1-2% of our muscle every year. Because of this, we lose strength. If you lose strength when you age, you will find it more and more difficult to complete everyday tasks such as carrying a laundry basket, groceries, playing with your grandchildren or just getting up out of a chair.
Maintaining strength and function is also tied into balance. If you’re not strong on your feet, you are in danger of falling, and subsequently, being unable to get back up.
Exercise builds bone density. We lose bone as we age and we lose strength in the bones we do have. The more weight and stress you put on the bone, the more it grows.
