Muscle Loss and Aging

Sarcopenia is the degenerative loss of muscle tissues as a natural part of the aging process. I am excited to share Public Health Minute’s “Sarcopenia” segment by Dr. Brad Schoenfeld, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Sciences at Lehman College. Dr. Schoenfeld’s research shows that light weights produce similar gains in muscle mass as traditional heavy lifting, which is great news for the senior population. Health and fitness have no age limit — it is never too late to be health conscious and reap the benefits!
