More Muscle = Live Longer

 

If you want to live longer, you might want to do some exercise. Researchers like to point to a lot of different things that can make you live longer.

Sleep, eating healthy foods, flexibility and especially a low BMI are thought to contribute to a longer, higher-quality life.

Now researchers think that body composition is the most important variable. That’s the relationship between muscle and fat in your body.

You want low body fat and higher muscle mass.

Muscle mass is what we lose first with inactivity and in general lose 10% per decade of life. Even faster if you don’t strength train regularly.
