Benefits of Exercise For Older Adults

If you haven't heard, muscle mass begins declining as you age.

After 70, the decline is exponential. However, a recent study shows this trend can be reversed among older adults with regular exercise. Older athletes in a recent study conducted at the University of Pittsburgh proved you can slow this process with an active lifestyle.

Read about the results of this study and why exercise is so important to older adults from Gretchen Reynolds in the New York Times.

People tend to think we should slow down as we get older, but that doesn't mean we should stop.
