Sarcopenia is an age related condition, relating to the severe loss of muscle mass. It affects your balance and ability to perform daily tasks and it’s most common cause is a decreased level of activity throughout the day. The main way to prevent sarcopenia is to ensure that you’re getting the right amount and type of exercise for your body. Resistance training has been identified as the specific form of exercise to benefit those who have the condition. The training is designed to build and improve muscle strength as well as improving stamina. These aren’t the only benefits of resistance training as it has also been shown to balance hormone levels and improve the ability to turn protein into energy in older people.
Do Not Age Resistance Bands can help to strengthen your body and reduce the risk of falling, as well as reducing the risk of injury from falling. Falls are the second leading causes of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. There is a lack of preventative methods to decrease the risk of falling and once a fall occurs, you’re more likely to live with a disability-adjusted life. Besides the physical impairments that are left after a fall, there are a number of other consequences also associated with falling. These include functional decline, anxiety, depression and social withdrawal. Several studies have shown that if you’re over the age of 65, you have a 30-40% chance of falling at least once per year. The older you are, the higher this percentage increases. Once a fall occurs, unfortunately your body naturally declines and this can lead to an increased chance of mortality. You have the power to reduce the chance of this happening to you.
Using the Do Not Age Resistance Bands several times a week, will help to build strength in your muscles, bones and joints that in turn lead to a stronger body. Not only does it lead to stronger and healthier muscles and bones, it can also help to improve your grip strength and reduce frailty, which in turn results in fewer accidents. From the age of 40 onwards, muscles tend to start loosing mass as part of the ageing process. Maintaining muscle mass (grip strength is part of this) is important for mobility and overall strength and researchers have said that grip strength can help to predict your overall health and strength. It has also been shown that stronger grip strength has been linked to lower risk of heart attacks and strokes.
