As you reach your 40s and 50s, a gradual loss of muscle mass begins and can continue a steady, downhill course into old age. This age-related loss of muscle mass, strength and function are known as sarcopenia, and it can happen quickly with reduced levels of physical activity and the adoption of a sedentary lifestyle.

While it is inevitable that everyone loses muscle mass with age, it’s possible to slow or even reverse that loss with proper exercise and diet. The methods are:
1. Strength training
2. Adequate protein and Vitamin D intake
3. Moderate amounts of cardiovascular exercise
