By lifting weights, you may increase your muscle mass and improve your overall fitness level.
Just two months of weight training can lead to noticeable gains in muscle size and fitness. Resistance training protected motor neurons in the spinal cord and improved
communication between neurons and muscles. The scientific community agrees that a head start in life helps the body build up "reserves" that may be used later on.
The results of the research were published in the American Journal of Physiology's Cell Physiology and Biomarkers.
It is becoming increasingly important to preserve as much of one's functional muscle mass as possible into old life. You may still improve your physique by lifting heavy weights.
