We know our bodies need fuel to feel and perform our best, and the fuel that we put in them has an impact on how we move, train, and recover.
All About Your Tendons
It’s Monday morning after an exhausting weekend full of your favorite activities. The 7:00 a.m. alarm sounds, you jump out of bed ready to take on the week and…ouch! Sore joints. It seems you may have overdone it. The culprit may have been the company softball game Saturday morning or perhaps it was the intense CrossFit workout at the local box later that afternoon. Come to think of it, it was probably running the impromptu 10k on Sunday, particularly given the fact that you didn’t warm up beforehand!
Your digestive system is a complex biological machine that breaks down the foods you eat, releasing energy and nutrients that ultimately provide fuel for your body.
One of the most significant physical changes that occurs as we age is loss of muscle mass. Gradual muscle loss can begin as early as the 30s and continue as we age. A physically inactive person can expect to lose between three percent and five percent of their muscle mass in their 30s and this loss can increase to over 10 percent per decade after 40, and even higher after 60.
