In this episode, we take a deep dive into what I believe is the secret to youth and vitality: *drumroll please* Strength Training, also known as progressive resistance training.

I cover why I’m an advocate for strength training, and the ways strength training helps you feel (and quite literally be) younger. 

First, I illustrate the difference between biological and chronological age. I dispute misleading claims about building muscle, and detail how insulin sensitivity affects muscle mass. Then, I share four ways lean muscle mass works to keep your body feeling young and explain the difference between body weight focus and improved body composition. Strength training will help improve energy and reduce your risk of chronic disease… and you’ll feel great, too. 

Along the way, you’ll gain research-backed resources in support of your success, and hear stories and lessons from my 30 years of experience. If you always feel tired, struggle to feel your best, or feel like managing body fat is a constant battle. This episode is for you. 

If you resonated with anything shared in today’s episode, I hope you’ll rate and leave a *glowing* review of the show on Apple Podcasts. It really helps the show grow and reach other people who are doing the work.
