We were at dinner with friends and I asked the question “When were you your strongest?” Everybody at that table referred back to when they were in college or in their 20s. After age 19 we lose 1% of our muscle tissue every year we do nothing to cause it to grow. Go to any retirement home and look at the direct results from not using your muscles, whether it is from disease or inactivity you are getting weaker every day you don’t lift weights. Today’s world is very different from “the olden days.” Electricity, the automobile, the computer and the internet make getting out of a chair unnecessary, thus our bodies are weaker than the generations prior to us.
Your body is atrophying and you probably know it — it has grown fatter and weaker. Mostly you only notice during those times you do something to test them and then your body aches the next few days. If I had a dollar for every person who told me I don’t have the time, my kids college loans would be paid for. The truth is you cannot afford to not put in the time. Imagine no longer being able to walk, take a shower, get off the toilet by yourself!
There is a whole industry devoted to working around this new epidemic of simply being weak — walk in tubs, scooter chairs and in-home assistance. I cannot think of a single condition where exercising regularly doesn’t improve on the quality of life for people with those conditions. This is truly a crime when you could avoid it with 10 exercises done 3 times a week, which would take you 10 minutes. We will send you those 10 exercises free through our virtual personal training service all you need do is contact us. Type the word “Help” and we will reply to that address with them. We feel your success! [contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
