Retirees of muscles that exercise regularly do not differ from the muscles of young people.
To that end, experts at Ball State University, after examining 28 people over seventy who have been practicing regularly since the 1970s, the Daily Mail reports.
According to doctors, older people who regularly engaged in physical activity, "younger" for 30 years. It should be noted that the study participants were not athletes.
It should also be noted that all volunteers were involved in regular races and light exercises. In addition, according to the subjects, training them was considered a normal pastime.
The researchers also found that 28 people supported this level of activity for 50 years.
For the purity of the experiment, doctors created two more groups, which included twenty volunteers and retirees, leading a sedentary lifestyle, more than seventy.
The researchers analyzed the participants' aerobic capacity and measured the number of capillaries and enzymes in their muscles, high levels of which demonstrate muscle health.
It is curious that the muscles of the people who regularly engaged in training were not different from the twenty-year-old muscles: more capillaries and enzymes, and this meant that they effectively dealt with the physical effects of old age.
In fact, the only difference between the two active groups – young and old – was the slightly reduced aerobic capacity. However, active retirees, the value was 40% higher.
In addition, when physicians compared data with national averages in different years, the active elderly the cardiovascular system was much better.
The results show that physical activity prolongs the youth of the muscles of the body and helps prevent premature death.
Remember that the elderly need to engage in martial arts.
As reported by the portal "Znayu", physical activity improves the cognitive function of the human brain.
