It's a fact of life

Luke Archer - Thursday, June 09, 2016

There's a whole beauty industry dedicated to slowing down the aging process.

Creams, procedures, needles, you name it - all in the name of staying young.

Well, as much as some of us may try to avoid it, it's inevitable - we are all growing older.

It's just a fact of life.

And while many of us focus on the wrinkles, or the greying hair, there's a much more serious process at work as we age.

Did you know that between the ages of 30-60, we lose 7kg of muscle mass and put on 15kg of fat, on average?

Yep, you read that correctly. If we do nothing, our body will automatically lose 7kg of muscle and replace and add to it with 15kg of body fat.

Loss of muscle mass and increase of body fat can lead to a range of health problems - diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity, just to name a few.

But there's something we can do to reverse this process.

Something so simple, it almost seems too good to be true.

And that's lifting weights.

Simply by performing resistance exercise a couple of times a week, you are adding to the fountain of youth. Not only that, your body shape will improve, you'll have more energy and be much healthier.

There are so many myths out there about weight training, but in this week's video, I really want to help you understand just how important it is to our health. I'm also going to address one of the most common myths about weight training - that if you're a woman, it will make you bulky. (The truth is just opposite!)

Watch the video for the simple, science-based info:
