Step Up Your Game to Build Brawn
It starts about age 30 and really picks up around age 40. It’s sarcopenia, or the natural decline of muscle mass that comes with age.
Why does it matter? The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn. So when you lose muscle mass as you approach midlife, your body burns fewer calories, slowing your metabolism.
Check with your doctor for help with sarcopenia. You’ll want to add strength training and resistance exercises to your regimen. Consider working with a personal trainer or physical therapist to tailor workouts to your needs.
