Falling is the number one leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries among older adults. Millions of seniors fall every year and more than 3 million are treated in emergency departments every year, with about 800,000 of those being admitted. Many of these falls are due to loss of muscle and bone density which could be prevented with strength training and exercise.
Each year after age 30, we lose an average of 1 percent of lean body mass and maximal oxygen uptake or VO2Max. Between 70 and 80 years of age, we lose three times that rate.
This loss of muscle mass and VO2Max, known as sarcopenia, is a primary cause of disability from falls and hip fractures and premature death as we age. Exercise has been shown to reduce sarcopenia, but not all types of physical activity are the same when it comes to gaining muscle. What is the number one way to increase lean body mass and reduce sarcopenia? Resistance exercise and strength training is the best type of exercise and should be a priority for those of us who find ourselves on the mailing list of the AARP.
