Despite being a Gov recommendation for years and years…
The latest UK Chief Medical Officers Report last week finally emphasised the importance of building strength (doing strength based exercise at least twice a week) to help:
1 – Prevent falls – linked to bone density and lack of muscle mass, particularly if you are over 50
2 – Reduce your risk of Type 2 Diabetes by 40%
3- Reduce your risk of heart disease by 30%
4 – Reduce your risk of depression by 30%
Now, of course, any exercise is better than none…
Walking, parking your car further away, taking the stairs instead of the lift etc.
^^^ These are all very beneficial and the key is building up from this and getting 1% better each day
There seems to be something very protective about muscle strengthening exercise
When it comes to ageing well, quality of life and even disease..
This is something we touched on when I interviewed researcher, Richie Kirwan, last month about healthy ageing, muscle strengthening exercise and diet
