Staying in shape is challenging in middle age. Long gone is the white-hot metabolism of young adulthood that burns off the worst diets with little effort. Muscle mass in men begins to decline as early as your thirties but picks up steam at age 40, where you’re likely to lose a pound of lean mass a year if you don’t engage in physical activity. If we’re lucky enough to reach 65, that’s more than 25 pounds of lean mass that have disappeared.
To reverse this trend, many men head to the weight room and start pumping iron, figuring that’s the quickest and most efficient way to maintain that lean mass and even add to it. Yoga is a better option.
