Increased Muscle Power May Help You Live Longer
A new study from Exercise Medicine Clinic — CLINIMEX, Brazil, suggests that increased muscle power may help people live longer.
The study included 3,878 participants aged from 41 to 85 years, none of whom was an athlete. Maximal muscle power of each participant was checked with the help of upright row exercise from 2001 to 2016.
The participants were separated into quartiles according to their muscle power and followed for approximately 6.5 years. During this period, 247 and 75 women died.
Having performed the detailed analysis, the researchers concluded that the participants in quartile one had a risk of dying 10 to 13 times higher compared to the risk of those in quartiles three and four with the maximal levels of muscle power.
