Age Reversal With Some Resistance Exercise

Views: 16969

Resistance Exercise

Can you really grow younger as you “age”? We can never think that muscles can literally turn back the genetic clock. But yes it’s true and is possible when you regularly exercise with resistance.

Resistance exercise can be weight training or just using your body weight. You can exercise that is heavy enough to cause some strain but not so heavy that it is painful or dangerous.

Resistance Exercises

Some of the biology aspects of our body are really unbelievable.

The mitochondria is the energy factory of the human cell. As we age our muscles begin to show what researchers call “mitochondrial dysfunction”. This is what causes all the bad stuff associated with “sarcopenia”. Sarcopenia is just the wasting away of muscle due to age and under-use. As we age most of us will experience a gradual loss of muscle. Here comes the main problem, as muscle is active tissue it is responsible for most of the calories we use during the day.

The less muscle you have, the more body fat you will gain if you eat the same amount of food. Muscle loss is also related to the onset of many bone diseases. The muscle that holds our spine in alignment can deteriorate as we age and cause major back problems. The same is true for the muscle and tendons around the knee and hip joints.

Resistance training obviously builds muscle and it does so at any age. After just six months of resistance training strength increases by over 20%, reversal of most of the genes gets started, genes literally “revert back” to the same markers as “younger” genes and affects age in muscle tissue.

It is one thing to maintain muscle as we age while to gain muscle is even better. That is downright amazing isn’t it? Strength is not a luxury as we age. It is absolutely necessary for longevity and health. And this all takes place at the genetic level. You’ll look better and feel better than you ever have to boot.

So many people turn to plastic surgery and drugs for this same effect. There is nothing wrong with that but wouldn’t you rather use a natural and safe alternative the one that helps you in a hundred other ways? It certainly makes a body look and feel younger than any thing else can. It is a gift that can add years to your life and take away years from your looks all at the same time.
