Ryan explains that most adults over age 50 are dealing with the medical condition known as sarcopenia. This progressive loss of muscle mass and strength is the #1 cause of falls and premature loss of independence. Ryan will share stories and explain the science and research around how to reverse this process naturally. When applied most people start to feel changes in their first 3-4 weeks, and typically start to notice significant meaningful changes after 6-8 weeks.
The good news is that you can regain your strength and muscle quality by maintaining a balance between Type 1 and Type 2 muscle fibers.
– Type 1 muscle fibers take minimal effort and calories to maintain and preserve basic ability to move.
– Type 2 muscle fibers require focused effort to maintain, maximize optimal body function and increase and maintain optimal metabolic function.
Most people over 50 have too many Type 1 and not enough Type 2.
Not having the proper muscle fiber balance has the effect of loss of structural support which results in reduced muscle and bone health, diminished balance, poor posture and increased joint and back pain. Not enough Type 2 fibers can also weaken cardiovascular health, leading to increased blood pressure, inflammation, and diminished circulation.
A final consequence of this condition is poor metabolic function with increased A1C, and increased glucose levels. No wonder so many people are being diagnosed with diabetes and pre-diabetes! This is the consequence of a sedentary lifestyle. Too many Type 1 and not enough Type 2 muscle fibers.
