It’s never too late to start training 🙈
It’s important to realise that without weight training with weights or body weight , your muscles will atrophy and lose mass. Age-related loss of muscle mass is known as sarcopenia, and if you don’t do anything to stop it you can expect to lose about 15 percent of your muscle mass between your 30s and your 80s.
Whilst muscle loss is inevitable, unless you do something to counteract it, it’s never too late to begin. In one study a group of nursing home residents with an average age of 90 improved their strength between 167 and 180 percent after just 8 weeks of training.
