Aging Intensely

As we get older, our cells age right along with us, and that appears to be what creates most of the changes we experience.

Scientists have not been able to identify one specific mechanism that causes aging-related muscle loss.

However, the evidence appears to suggest that a reduction in the efficiency of how mitochondria in muscle cells function, a decrease in the number of satellite cells used to repair damaged tissues, and an accumulation of free radicals all play a role.

Exercise can help control the primary aging process, but to have the greatest effects, exercise programs must alternate between periods of high, low, and moderate intensity to challenge the physiological systems to function at a high level while allowing the proper time for rest so the tissues have a chance to recover, repair, and become more efficient.

I’m excited about today’s new podcast with Pete McCall. He’s the author of Ageless Intensity: High Intensity Workouts to Slow the Aging Process. 

You’re going to love this conversation with Pete, because he provides straight-forward, science-backed information, and useful tools to control aging and keep you feeling young.

In this episode, you’ll discover…

​⭐️ Busting the myth that with age, exercise should only be at a very low intensity. 

​⭐️ How explosive movements elicit different responses in your body, and support successful aging 

​⭐️ Benefits of HIIT training that go way beyond increased fat burn 

​⭐️ How chronic cardio could be aging you faster 

​⭐️ Finding the sweet spots for balancing kinder, gentler aerobic base-building with harder, faster bouts of intensity.

⭐️  The science behind how exercise can change the body’s response to the aging process

​⭐️ Techniques to remain active, stay in shape, and enjoy your favorite activities for the rest of your life
