How wonderful it feels to be addicted to something that enhances your present and also your future life.
Addiction is defined as the need or strong desire to do or to have something, or a very strong liking for something.
This ‘positive obsession’ can come in many forms but exercise, specifically strength training, is something that is essential if we want to maintain muscle mass, bone mass, strength and a healthy metabolism.
Studies show that muscle mass decreases approximately 3–8% per decade after age 30 and the rate of decline is even higher after age 60.
The decrease in muscle mass is accompanied by a progressive increase in fat mass and as a result changes in body composition. This is especially true for women as they move into menopause.
Let’s not take activities like walking, shopping, dressing, cleaning etc for granted. Let’s do something today to support our future bodies so that we can maintain our independence for as long as possible.
