More on: Aging and sarcopenia

The podcast episodes discuss the importance of maintaining and building muscle mass, particularly as people age, to prevent sarcopenia and its associated health consequences.

For example, the episode "Why Muscle Matters & How to Build It" explores the crucial role of skeletal muscle in health and performance, as well as interventions like resistance training to improve muscle quantity and quality.

The episode "Episode 161: Sten Stray-Gundersen on the benefits of blood-flow restriction training" discusses how blood flow restriction (BFR) training may be a useful tool for older adults to mitigate age-related muscle loss.
