MRI of legs at different ages

This is an MRI of legs at different ages. The red is the muscle mass. As you can see, the muscle mass decreases as time goes on and as we age. This is exactly what we DO NOT want to happen.

Want to know the #1 reason why people need to be checked into an assisted living facility when they get older? It’s because they lack the leg strength to be able to stand up after sitting on the toilet.

This is why weight training and resistance training is so damn important, especially as we get older. Working out is not just about looking good…more importantly, it’s about keeping your body strong as you get older so you can continue to do normal day-to-day activities well into your 80’s and 90’s.

Make sure you are implementing some type of resistance training into your fitness routine. It’s one of the most important things you can do.
