Fat-burning and mood-lifting hacks for you. Discover how exercise keeps us strong, lean and positive as we age.

Life always gets busy, but making time for a regular workout can make a big difference to our bodies as we age. 

After 30, you lose as much as 3% to 5% of your muscle mass per decade. This is a natural process called sarcopenia, and it's not just about losing strength. This muscle loss affects your metabolism, bone density, and ability to perform daily activities with ease. Weight training or resistance training is the antidote. You can slow down or even reverse this process by engaging in regular muscle-strengthening activities. Think of it as investing in your body's longevity bank—the returns are well worth it.

Benefits of Exercise

  1. Boosting Metabolism and Managing Weight

As muscle mass decreases, your metabolism also takes a hit. This makes it easier to gain weight and harder to lose it. Training your muscles boosts your basal metabolic rate, meaning you burn more calories even when not working out. It's like upgrading your body to a more efficient energy-burning engine. The more muscle you have, the more fuel you burn sitting, walking, or sleeping. This is crucial for managing weight as you age keeping obesity and related health issues at bay.

  1. Enhancing Bone Density and Reducing Injury Risk

Weight-bearing exercises build muscle and increase bone density. This is vital for preventing osteoporosis, a condition that makes bones fragile and more prone to fractures. By putting stress on your bones, muscle training stimulates the bone-building process. Stronger muscles and bones mean you build resilience, reduce the ease of injury, and lower the risk of falls and fractures later in life.

  1. Improving Mental Health and Cognitive Function

Exercise is a proven mood booster, and muscle training is no exception. It releases endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals, reducing feelings of depression and anxiety. There's also growing evidence that regular physical activity, including strength training, can help maintain cognitive function, memory, and the ability to perform everyday tasks. It's not just about building a stronger body; it's about fostering a resilient, sharp mind.

  1. Enjoying Fun and Quality of Life

As you age, muscle training aims to maintain your independence and quality of life in your later years. Regular strength training ensures that you can continue to live life on your terms, engaging in activities you love, from gardening, skiing, running, and tennis to playing with your grandchildren. A strong foundation means you can live life better.  You don't need to lift heavy weights immediately; begin with bodyweight exercises, resistance bands, or light dumbbells. The key is consistency and gradually increasing the challenge. Remember, ageing is a natural part of life, but how you age depends on taking care of your health.  Invest in your muscles now, and your future self will thank you.
