Maintaining Muscle Mass
That may be about to change since I recently learned that muscle mass steadily decreases as we grow older. That is a scary thought and I certainly don't want that to happen. I like to keep the strength I have now, but I also know I can not participate in an Extreme Body Workout as a result of my RA.
It doesn't mean though that I can not do any workout at all. Even the most intense exercise programs like the 90 Day Review have several movements in them which I can take part in and that are easy on the joints. I just have to be realistic and diligent in my choice.
The goal is to increase my stamina, at least maintain my muscle mass, and keep my muscles in a good and healthy condition. I certainly don't have any aspirations for ending up with a Beach Body; I just want to be able to play with our grandchildren without constantly being out of breath and ending up with stiff and sore muscles!
