Muscle Mass…Here Are Some Pictures to Make an Impression!

Wow! I guess I better start adding more EXERCISE to my life. Running, swimming, biking, walking, weight lifting….anything and everything. I know this applies to all ages (and better late than never), but for the 20/30 somethings? You haven’t lost muscle mass yet, and look what you can keep!

These pictures compare quadriceps muscle mass in an active 40-year-old triathlete, a sedentary 74-year-old man, and an active 70-year-old triathlete. The picture of the 74 year old man’s muscle mass and fat tissue was creepy, and the study finds that these results are not due to muscle aging as much as they are due to chronic muscle disuse.
