Sarcopenia is the loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength as a result of aging.
It’s a terrible situation.
Let’s explore sarcopenia!
1. To develop the habit of being able to stand…just don’t sit! …and don’t lie down if you can sit!
2. If an elderly person falls ill and is admitted to the hospital, do not ask him for more rest, or to lie down and relax and not get out of bed!
Lying down for a week loses at least 5% of muscle mass!
And the old man can’t recover his muscles!
Usually, many seniors who hire assistants lose muscle faster!
3. Sarcopenia is more terrifying than osteoporosis!
With osteoporosis, you just need to be careful not to fall, while sarcopenia not only affects the quality of life but also causes high blood sugar due to insufficient muscle mass!
4. The fastest loss of muscle atrophy is in the muscles of the legs!
Because when a person is sitting or lying down, the legs do not move and the strength of the muscles of the legs is affected … This is especially important!
You should watch out for sarcopenia!
Going up and down stairs…running and cycling are all great exercises and can increase muscle mass!
For a better quality of life for all in old age…
Move…don’t waste your muscles!!
Aging starts from the feet up!
Keep your legs active and strong!!
▪️ As we grow older and older on a daily basis, our feet should always stay active and strong.
▪️ If you don’t move your legs for just 2 weeks, your real leg strength will decrease by 10 years.
Therefore, *regular exercise such as walking, is very important*.
The feet are a kind of columns that bear the entire weight of the human body.
Walk every day.
Interestingly, 50% of a person’s bones and 50% of muscles are in the legs.
*are you walking*
The largest and strongest joints and bones of the human body are also found in the legs.
70% of human activity and energy burning in human life is done by bipeds.
* The foot is the center of body movement *.
▪️ Both legs together contain 50% of the human body’s nerves, 50% of the blood vessels and 50% of the blood flowing through them.
Aging starts from the feet up
▪️ * Legs exercise is never too late even after the age of seventy and eighty *
▪️ Walk at least 30-40 minutes a day to make sure your legs receive enough exercise and to ensure your leg muscles stay healthy.
Share this important information with all your friends and family members over the age of 40, as everyone gets older every day.🙏🙏🙏
