Muscle Up

Developing Muscle Is More Important Than You Think                                                                                     

There are many reasons to weight train.  They are all good, yet the number one reason may have been recently discovered in the Annals of Surgical Oncology.

PsoasThe Psoas Muscle stabilizes the lower spine and contributes to hip flexion, external rotation, side bending and raising yourself when lying on your back.

Researchers using CT scans found that patients with cancer with higher muscle density had significantly better survival rates and less metastasis, that is the chance of the cancer spreading.

The most amazing thing was for every 10 units of decreased muscle density it translated into a 28 percent increase in recurrence of the disease regardless of age.

It seems that Getting Strong prepares you for sport and the serious battles of life.
