The ‘Iron’ Clad Secret to Adding Years to Your Life

Dear Turapür Today Reader,

Let’s face it. Sometimes getting exercise is the LAST thing you feel like doing during the day.

We all know we need it, but sometimes it just gets pushed to the bottom of our ‘to-do’ list. We’ve all made excuses to NOT exercise.

But I’m here to give you a little ‘motivation.’ Because if there was ever a reason to workout… THIS is it.

And trust me, it doesn’t take a lot of your time. In fact, just committing to this very-specific type of exercise a couple days per week could add YEARS to your life.

I’m talking about LIFTING WEIGHTS!

Now before you think that weight lifting is only for bulked up meatheads, check this out this study from Brazil…

According to researchers at the University of São Paulo’s Medical School, a study of men and women over 65 shows that the risk of death by ANY cause rises dramatically in people with low muscle mass in their arms and legs.

Lack of muscle mass has to do with something called age-related sarcopenia, or the gradual loss of muscle mass and quality while aging.

When combined with osteoporosis, sarcopenia makes older men and women more prone to falls, fractures, and serious physical injuries. Low bone mineral density, especially in the femur, is linked to earlier death in elderly people.

Muscle mass loss occurs naturally after the age of 40 and accelerates after the age of 50, when people lose between one and two percent of muscle mass each year.

The research team honed in on appendicular muscles (arms and legs) because it is effective in predicting the longevity of individuals over 65 years of age. This group of muscles moves our appendages and extremities and plays a crucial role in stabilizing the hips and shoulders.

But I promise it’s not all doom-and-gloom…

Sarcopenia is preventable AND can be reversed.

How? Some simple strength training – primarily in the arms and legs – can keep your body healthy and strong AND fend off age-related sarcopenia.

And best of all, it doesn’t require an expensive gym membership or an unreasonable time commitment.

If you already have an exercise routine like walking or jogging, consider incorporating some simple strength training into our already-established routine.

Walk with some light hand weights (2-5 lbs.), or during your walk or run do some pushups against a wall or a side of a building. Both are easy on your joints AND give your arms a great ‘pump.’

If strength training is new to you, don’t worry… it can easily be added into your daily routine.

All you need is a simple set of dumbbells anywhere from 5-12 lbs. Simple movements like bicep curls, squats, and shoulder presses are all easy to master and work all the muscles in both your arms and legs.

Try doing 2-3 sets of each exercise two days per week. And if you feel like you’re strapped for time, try doing it while watching your favorite TV show, or even the news.

And remember, the older we get, the quicker our muscle mass can go away. So, consider a supplement like branched-chain amino acids to help support muscle growth.

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are essential, meaning they can’t be produced by your body and must be obtained from food. BCAA supplements have been shown to build muscle, decrease muscle fatigue and alleviate muscle soreness and can be found at any reputable health food store.
