So what’s a big reason why people gain weight as they age? -Poor metabolism. Studies show that overtime someone who does not strength train loses half a pound of muscle each year. That means over a ten-year period 5 pounds of muscle is lost. We know that muscle tissue has a positive effect on our metabolism, and as adults age and age, muscle tissue atrophies because there is a lack of resistance training and or challenging activity. Muscle tissue has a big effect on resting metabolic rate.
