“Keep­ing your mus­cles strong could help you turn back the clock by up to 20 years,” says Yours fit­ness ex­pert Julie robin­son (www. moveitor­lo­seit.co.uk). “Main­tain­ing mus­cle strength al­lows you to do the things you love in life for longer, keeps you healthy and helps you stay in­de­pen­dent.” reg­u­larly putting your mus­cles to the test to keep them strong could help you live longer, too. a study by aus­tralian re­searchers found peo­ple who do re­sis­tance ex­er­cises have a 23 per cent lower risk of death by all causes and a

31 per cent lower risk of dy­ing of cancer than those who don’t. and of course toned mus­cles make you look younger and health­ier too!
