The Importance of keeping your legs strong. When we are old, our feet must always remain strong
When a person ages, he or she is not afraid of hairs turning white or skin is sagging or wrinkled.
Among the signs of longevity summarized by the US magazine "Prevention", "strong leg muscles" are listed in the top order
Do not move for two weeks, leg strength decrease by 40 years
A study from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark found that both old and young, during two weeks of inactivity, leg muscle strength weakened by a third, which is equivalent to 40-50 years of age.
As the leg muscles weaken, it will take a long time to recover, even if you do rehabilitation later.
Therefore, regular exercise is very important.
The whole body pressure is on the legs.
1. The foot is the pillar of the burden of the human body. 50% of a person's bones and 50% of the muscles are in the two legs, the largest and strongest joints and bones of the human body are also in it.
"Strong bones, strong muscles, and flexible joints form the" iron triangle "that carries the most important load on the human body."
70% of the activity and expenses of energy in one's life is done with both feet.
2. The foot is the center of body transport. Both of one's legs have 50% of the nerves of the human body, 50% of the blood vessels, and 50% of the blood flowing through them. It is a large circulatory network that connects the body.
Only with healthy feet then the channels run smoothly. People who have strong leg muscles will definitely have a strong heart.
3. Aging starts from the feet. As a person gets older, the accuracy and speed of instruction transmission between the legs and the brain decrease, unlike when they were young.
In addition, the so-called "bone-fertilizing" calcium in the bones will sooner or later be lost, making the elderly more prone to fractures.
Fractures in the elderly easily trigger a series of diseases, especially fatal diseases such as brain thrombosis.
You know: 15% of patients will even die within a year of a fracture!
Exercising the legs, before it is too late from the age of 60 years
Although our feet will gradually year after year, exercising our feet is a lifelong task. Only by strengthening the legs, can minimize further aging.
Forwarded as received with great concern and safety to all and especially seniors. 🙏🏻✨
