Myth 4: The older you get the more weight you gain
Fact: Lifting weights and cardio can help maintain the desired weight
The older we get the slower we become. That’s something we cannot avoid. After the age of 40 every ten years our metabolism slows down by up to 5%. However, the situation is not totally hopeless and you can stay fit and trim all your life. Here the main point is to stay active. People who avoid physical activity lose muscle. As we know it’s muscle that burns fat. That’s why it is very important to do sports even at an old age. Training 3 times a week is enough to keep in shape. Involve all muscle groups by combining cardio with weight lifting.
