Be stronger in 15 minutes
Stay younger for longer in just a few minutes a day
“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!
