Show Highlights & Big Takeaways:
Maintaining muscle mass offers multiple benefits as we age, including enhanced functional independence, improved bone health, boosted metabolism for weight management, greater balance and stability, and reduced risk of chronic diseases.
Including pushups in your fitness regimen is an effective means to evaluate and enhance both upper body and core strength. During a standard pushup, you’re lifting approximately 75% of your body weight, and about 60% when performing modified knee pushups.
Enhancing your strength will have a positive impact on every aspect of your life. Try incorporating one additional pushup into your routine each week. Remember, it’s not a race; simply aim to surpass your personal best.
