The best exercise to reverse Aging!
You know there’s one subject that gets me super excited than any other and that’s the subject of Anti-Aging! I dig around and hunt for any strategy that’ll help me stay younger for longer. And I don’t mean medical or surgery (that’s cheating, expensive and usually looks pretty bad) but I mean natural, healthy and fantastic ways in which you can hit the pause button on Aging.
I have many friends, clients and family members who’s quality of life is really hampered because they didn’t take care of themselves when they really needed to. Whether it’s joint pain, diabetes, obesity, low energy, bad injuries, high stress levels, high cholesterol or high blood pressure, I’m constantly reminded of why I bounce out of bed every day really early to stretch/meditate/sauna/eat clean and train hard.
I mean, how much would you pay to actually stop aging???
So, when I come by a new article or a new piece of research that shows me how to do this, I get nothing but joy to share it with you all.
What’s the best exercise to combat and reverse Aging??? Weight Training
That’s right, lifting heavy stuff.
How does it reverse aging? Well as well as up regulating your hormones (such as Growth Hormone and Testosterone) as well as staving off bone degenerative conditions like Osteoporosis, today i’m going to introduce to you the Telomere.
Telomeres are the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes that affect how quickly cells age. They are combinations of DNA and protein that protect the ends of chromosomes and help them remain stable. As they become shorter, and as their structural integrity weakens, the cells age and die quicker.
In recent years, shorter telomeres have become associated with a broad range of aging-related diseases, including many forms of cancer, stroke, vascular dementia, cardiovascular disease, obesity, osteoporosis and diabetes.
Basically, the quicker your Telomeres shorten, the faster you age!
Now, study after study are showing that Weight Training actually SLOWS down the rate at which your Telomeres shorten. And they also discovered that Telomere length in people who lifted weights regularly are longer and more durable than those who are sedentary. In short, those who weight training are biologically younger than those who don’t.
So go lift some weights and if you’re not doing so, introduce it as part of your training regime. If you’re not sure or need some help lifting weights correctly, give us a call and book in a session. Remember, we’re not doing this to look like body builders, we’re doing this for a longer, fuller life! Tell me something that’s more important than that…
