May 19, 2023

Muscle losses begin at age 30 - if we’re not doing anything to prevent them. The average (and no you’re not!) individual will lose 3-8% of muscle per decade and a significant amount by age 60. After that, it accelerates. Again.. This is based on historical data. How about we change history? 

Loss of muscle is a choice. Now that we have the science. You’re either choosing to lose it or choosing not to. Today on the Flipping 50 show, a tool how not to. Even if… you are in bed rest, you’re injured, you’re traveling, you’re caregiving or in front of a computer 8 hours a day. 

We’ve discussed blood flow restriction bands here on Flipping 50 before. This goes a bit deeper. It’s the upgrade. If gaining muscle over 50 is right where you are and exactly what you want, this is your episode. However, it’s also for your older aging parents, for preparedness if you are injured, for your younger sons and daughters maybe more sedentary and less motivated.
