What is Decreased Muscle Mass?

Ah, the age-old question that plagues us all as we get older – decreased muscle mass. But fear not, my friends! We're here to shed some light on this topic and give you the 411 on how to keep those muscles poppin'.

First things first, let's define decreased muscle mass, shall we? Essentially, it's the gradual loss of muscle tissue that occurs as we age. Yep, it's a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn't mean we have to take it lying down (unless, of course, you're doing some killer core exercises – then by all means, lie down!).

"Muscle mass decreases approximately 3-8% per decade after age 30 and this rate of muscle mass loss is even higher after age 60." - (

Now, you might be thinking, "But I'm not old! Why should I care about this?" Well, my friend, decreased muscle mass can happen to anyone, regardless of age. Factors like:

...can all contribute to this unwanted loss of muscle mass.

But fear not! There are ways to combat this sneaky little thing called decreased muscle mass. Here are a few tips:

  1. Resistance training: Lift those weights, my friends! Resistance training is a surefire way to build and maintain muscle mass. Whether it's free weights, resistance bands, or your own body weight, get those muscles working!
  2. Protein intake: Muscles need protein to grow and repair. Make sure you're getting enough high-quality protein from sources like lean meats, eggs, and protein supplements (shameless plug: Hormone Harmony Clinic offers top-notch protein supplements to support muscle growth!).
  3. Hormonal support: As we age, our hormone levels can fluctuate, which can impact muscle mass. That's where Hormone Harmony Clinic comes in! Our team of experts can help you explore safe and effective hormone therapies to support muscle growth and maintenance.

So there you have it, folks! Decreased muscle mass is a real thing, but it's not the end of the world. With a little bit of effort (and maybe some help from the friendly folks at Hormone Harmony Clinic), you can keep those muscles strong and healthy for years to come.

Stay swole, my friends!
