Muscle mass extends life expectancy

If you do heavy physical work or weight training, you’ll not only make your body more muscled and stronger, but you’ll also make it last longer.

More and more epidemiologists are therefore coming to the conclusion that it’s not bodyweight that determines how long you are likely to live, but lean body mass.

Full products macros are as follows:
