Did you know that after the age of 30, people can lose 3-5% of their muscle mass per decade?😲The good news is that strength training can help you maintain and rebuild muscle at any age 💪. Aim to do 2 strength sessions per week. A strength exercise is any activity that makes your muscles work harder than usual. It involves using your body weight or working against resistance.
Examples of muscle-strengthening activities include:
👉bodyweight exercises such as push-ups, sit-ups, lunges and squats
👉lifting weights such as dumbbells, kettlebells
👉working with resistance bands
👉heavy gardening, such as digging and shoveling
We incorporate strength exercises into our live online Strength & Tone classes at 7pm every Monday, our Core & Tone classes at 7:40pm every Thursday and our BodyWell classes at 8pm on a Monday & Thursday. Click HERE.
