Sprung Life Newsletter - 13th September 2023
Tweet of the Week: 
DanGo @FitFounder stresses the importance of strength exercise for men in their 30s/40s to reap the benefit in their 70's. 
"An 80 year old man who lifts is as strong as a 30 year old man who doesn't.
After the age of 30 muscle mass decreases by approximately 3-8% every decade. This rate of decline becomes even faster after the age of 60.
This reminds me of my dad who decided to start lifting & running at 40 years old. Now at the age of 76, his body and brain are as active as ever. He doesn't need any form of assistance, he's living independently and doing it on his terms. 
A couple sessions a week of weight training is the ultimate form of delayed gratification. You're trading 90 minutes a week for a lifetime of mobility, strength, and brain health. I'd make that trade in a heartbeat.
I know some people in their old age who look back and regret not taking better care of themselves. They got to a point where there was no return. You don't want to let that happen to you. It's better to be the oldest person in the weight room than the youngest person in the nursing home. 
Lift now so you can reap the benefits later."
