If you want to live longer, lift heavy weights in the gym. The study showed that the owners of weak muscles 50% more likely to leave life prematurely.
Wishing to have a healthy and long old age now is the time to visit the gym and do heavy weights and not just treadmills. The study showed that owners of powerful muscles significantly more likely to live to a ripe old age than people who are not able to boast muscled.
Scientists from the University of Michigan believe that to start strength training never too late. And for the elderly, they have even greater importance than for young people.
The most important thing in this study that the strength of the muscles, not their volume is fundamental to life expectancy. This is true for Ukraine, whose population is aging rapidly.
If before three working citizens of our country had one retiree, today the ratio is 0.95% of workers per retiree. More than half of Ukrainians over 65 years of age have any serious chronic health problems, which often allow them to get disability. Many seniors need assistance performing everyday chores.
Unfortunately, science can’t offer the man anything in order to stop the process of aging. However, the persistence of physical strength is due to regular exercise significantly slows down natural processes and allows long time to maintain independence in old age, which plays a very significant role in the evaluation of the quality of life of the pensioner.
