Health Tip of the Week
Muscle mass begins to decline after thirty and most of us, lose 30% of our muscles during a lifetime.
Engaging in strength training or resistance training will help preserve muscle mass. Skeletal muscles are made up of individual muscle fibres. And like muscles themselves, not all muscle fibres are the same. There are two types of skeletal muscle fibres, fast-twitch, and slow-twitch. The fast ones, responsible for generating power and strength shrink twice as fast as the slow-twitch. And maintaining the fast-twitch muscle fibres is very important.
We need them for our daily activities like getting up from a chair or to regain our balance quickly as we grow old. So you must do enough strength training to keep your muscle toned and ability to react quickly as you age.
