Never Stop Training

There is compelling evidence that exercise is medicine and physical inactivity ‘has profound deleterious effects on health’. Even late in life an increase in physical activity has striking benefits. The decline of structure and function of muscle mass over decades may represent the most dramatic change to our physiological system. Maintaining lean muscular tissue must be taken seriously, it’s decline effects mobility, overall nutrient intake and status, disease, mastication, pulmonary function and much more including our independence in daily living.

In a meeting on biologic gerontology in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1988 Dr Irwin H. Rosenberg recognized the serious need to label this loss of lean tissue and introduced the the term sarcopenia, which originates from the Greek roots of the word sarx for flesh and penia for loss. Fighting sarcopenia should be a goal. Maintaining a normal body weight and maintaining functional skeletal muscle mass should always be at the forefront of any intervention strategy to achieve “healthy aging”.
