Muscular strength is an important part of your overall health. That’s overall health, mind you, not just running, jumping and having toned muscles. Maintaining the right amount of muscle in your body is important throughout your life for keeping all the inner workings of your body strong as well. The fit, toned look of Olumia Life will give you the muscles you need to reduce the risk of numerous diseases, achieve optimum health and fight against the metabolic syndrome.
The metabolic syndrome is not itself a disease. Instead, it’s a set of risk factors comprising a dangerous progression towards declining overall health. It indicates a sharp increase in your risk of type-2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, circulatory problems and other potentially life-threatening conditions. Almost a quarter of all Americans already have the metabolic syndrome, and that number is expected to increase dramatically.
If you’re overweight, lead a sedentary lifestyle without regular exercise, and/or have poor insulin efficiency, you are at risk of developing the metabolic syndrome. You can find out if you have metabolic syndrome by answering just a few questions.
Building and maintaining quality muscle through strength training affords you numerous benefits:
One study, from the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, of more than 8,000 men aged 20 to 75 found that strength and fitness resulted in a significant reduction in the rate at which participants developed the metabolic syndrome. Whether they were overweight or not, there was no less than a 62% fall in chances of having the metabolic syndrome.
Another study, published in 2011 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, looked at more than 13,000 men and women. It found that every 10% increase in skeletal muscle caused an 11% increase insulin efficiency.
It’s easy to say, “I think I need to start building some healthy muscles;” it’s quite another to figure out just how to go about doing it. The metabolic syndrome is very prevalent. The more people look for how to fend against it, the more misinformation seems to proliferate both online and elsewhere.
That’s where Olumia Life comes in. The interconnectivity of the different systems in your body, evident through your muscles’ ability to fight the metabolic syndrome, applies to every aspect of your overall health. Olumia provides all the scientifically-backed answers you’re looking for in a simple plan made to let you look and feel your best. Olumia’s specific set of exercises, variety, order and progression in your strength training is designed to improve insulin efficiency as well as meet all your long-term fitness goals.
