There are 3 good reasons to boost Muscle for Metabolism, Mental Health, and Mood in Women Over 40!
Muscle losses begin at 30 if we're not doing something about it.
Between 3-8% muscle mass is lost per decade after 30.
That acceleratees to 1-2% a year after 60.
Muscle strength drops 1-2% each year after 50.
All this if strength training (and conscious protein intake) aren't practiced.
Then there's mental health:
Depression and anxiety are both more prevalent in women and partially because they outlive males. But also mood, immediate mood benefits. Clarity, focus, memory and creativity all benefit.
So many health ailments or benefits are directly tied to the amount of muscle one has. And there's only one way to change yours.
Lift weights. Strength training may lengthen your life, but it will absolutely improve it.
Are you tired of settling for weight gain and fatigue just because you’re approaching or have already passed age 50? You can still get in the best shape of your life, no matter your age!
