While it is already known that skeletal muscle mass declines with increasing age, this study aimed to evaluate the relationship between skeletal muscle mass and 10-year cardiovascular disease incidence in healthy 45+ adults. Findings from this study support the importance of skeletal muscle mass in the prediction of long-term cardiovascular disease risk among middle aged and older adults without any pre-existing cardiovascular disease.

Skeletal muscle mass in relation to 10-year cardiovascular disease incidence among middle aged and older adults: the ATTICA study
Research has shown that low vitamin D levels in adults aged 60 years and over are linked to impaired muscle strength and performance.
After age 30, you may begin to lose 3-5% of muscle mass per decade. In this series, the Try Guys wear a body suit developed by MIT that simulates an elderly adult and the physical changes that occur as you age.
