Do More Without Feeling Fatigued
Your list of reasons to build muscle mass is seemingly never-ending….it helps you do more without getting fatigued, strengthens your bones, protects your heart, rewires your brain, and improves insulin sensitivity.
But, your muscles need more than just strength. They also need to have power.
