Life’s easier when we don’t work out

But we’ll have a better life when we do work out. This becomes annoyingly obvious the older we get.

Resistance training makes it easier to maintain our independence. Strength, lean muscle, and bone health are all baked into it. It’s hard to get these benefits from any other form of exercise.

The later you start resistance training, the more of an uphill you have ahead of you trying to claim the past. Especially when it comes to bone density.

The good news is that it’s never too late to begin.

If you haven’t started yet, today’s a good day to do a set of squats.
