Do you need a little motivation to keep (or begin) exercising? With winter and the holidays approaching, it’s easy to let exercise slip off the radar. But in today’s Video Clip by Dr. Pam Popper, she explains how exercise prevents and reverses SARCOPENIA – the loss of muscle tissue due to aging.
Did you know that frailty is the number one reason people end up in a nursing home? Avoiding that situation is a big motivator for many. Muscle weakness and the inability to perform even simple, routine tasks such as tying one’s shoes can result from the lack of exercise. Fortunately, this can be prevented and even reversed.
AND, it’s never too late to start! Studies of people over 70 show they are able to regain strength and reverse many ailments in a short amount of time, making exercise known as “The Fountain of Youth.”
Be sure to watch the video. Dr. Pam goes into detail about our muscle cells and skeletal structure, The topic begins at the 7:00 minute mark. When you’re finished watching, make time today to spend an hour exercising. God has designed our bodies to move and be active 🙂
