Losing muscle means a lack of mobility and more falls and injuries. These falls can result in broken bones. The good news is that you can rebuild your muscle mass and maintain it. A lack of testosterone could also result in the loss of muscle mass. Older men should avoid taking testosterone suppliments because they are not proven to build muscle mass. They should instead do muscle training called PRT which gradually helps build muscle mass.
- Slowing or reversing the age-related loss of testosterone through regular progressive resistance training.
- Maintaining a high protein diet, to counteract declines in how readily the body processes protein as it ages.
- Sticking to a regular PRT exercise routine to avoid missing the chance to slow or halt natural age degradation in the body.
“But just because you lose muscle mass does not mean it is gone forever. “Older men can indeed increase muscle mass lost as a consequence of aging,”
