Inactivity & Aging... A Bad Combination

Inactivity & Aging... A Bad Combination

Thought for the day:

  • Inactivity causes a loss of slow twitch muscle fibers.
  • Aging causes a loss of fast twitch muscle fibers.
  • Inactivity + Aging = Loss of total muscle mass, weakness and increased risk for falls.
  • Falls are the number one reason for fractures.

By the end of today, you won't be any younger...
