How to Prevent Age-Related Muscle Loss

Are you over the age of 30?

Great things come with age, but when it comes to maintaining your muscles, you need to up your game to avoid age-related muscle loss.

Sarcopenia is muscle loss that occurs with aging and/or immobility, and sadly after 30, we start to lose muscle mass by 3% to 5% each decade.

But – it doesn’t have to be this way! What’s the answer?

We can do a lot to delay this effect of aging with the one-two punch of:

  1. getting in enough protein coupled with,
  2. lifting weights.

In this video, I reveal plenty of sources of protein you can easily get into your diet that contain the essential amino acids your muscles need. Plus – I also break down the effects of Intermittent Fasting on your muscles that might surprise you.

Be sure to also check out my other videos: The Benefits of Milk for Building Muscle and Intermittent Fasting for Health and Weight Loss.

  1. I’m over the age of 40. I try to perform a number of heavy compound weightlifting movements every week, as well as take creating and whey protein (above average amount as older people apparently need more).
