Follow these simple steps to know your muscle age
Step 1

Choose a sutaible chair

The height of the chair should be approx. 43 cm (1.4 ft)

Step 2

Use a stopwatch to time yourself

Sit-to-stand on both legs 5 times with arms folded as fast as you can.

Step 3

Know your muscle age now

For your own safety

Be careful not to strain or injure yourself.

Stop the challenge immediately if your knees start to hurt.

Don’t lean back to gain momentum or you may topple backwards.

Do the test when you have a friend or family member around to support you.

Do not try the test if you have had a recent fall or injury.

Uh-Oh!
Your muscles are older than you. You need to get stronger inside out.
Wow!
Your muscle age matches your age perfectly. Continue to stay stronger inside out.

Your muscle age is in the:

40s

While your result is within the norm for your age,
you're slower than the mean speed for the 40!

Your result is at the mean speed for your age.

Share your result and
challenge your friends
*Muscle Age is an indication of the strength and performance of the muscles in the lower limbs, and is calculated based on the 5-times sit-to-stand test which matches test time with specific biological age groups.

Results are based on Caucasian age norms. Bohannon R et al. Isokinetics and Exercise Science 15 (2007) 77–81.

#Consult your health care practitioner as appropriate

While you can’t reverse the ageing process, you can minimize muscle loss with exercise and complete balanced nutrition. Your muscle health matters more than you think.

Reviving muscle strength as you age.

After the age of 40, the physiology of both men and women undergo changes. More importantly, the body starts to lose muscle mass faster, and that can be as much as 33% of muscle mass loss between 40-80 years old1.

Preventing age-related loss of muscle mass and strength is, in a way, the answer to maintaining your physical capability as you grow older and thus, a key to independent living.

Declining muscle mass and strength are expected components of ageing. However, the rate of decline differs across the population, suggesting that modifiable behavioral factors such as diet and lifestyle may be important influences on muscle function in older age2.

There is a growing body of evidence that links nutrition to muscle mass, strength, and function in older adults, suggesting that is has an important role to play both in the prevention and management of age-related muscle loss3. Poor muscle health can lead to loss of strength and immunity, affecting day to day activities and increasing the risk of infections4.

Once you reach a certain age the lack of a balanced diet may affect the muscle mass. Regular exercise and a nutrition-rich diet helps maintain and repair the muscle, to stay fit and active.

  • Improve muscle health and immunity with daily exercises.

    The benefits of physical exercise are a plenty! Research studies have shown that when we include physical activity it helps abdominal obesity, improves our lipid profile; improves insulin sensitivity, and reduces blood pressure.

    If you have never done any form of exercise, with the help of your fitness trainer begin with a 15-minute walk and then gradually increase it to 30 minutes then 45 minutes on weekly basis.

    Building strength with daily indoor exercises is possible. One leg stands help improve balance when done for a minute with each leg and squats are beneficial in strengthening leg muscles5.

    Cycling, dancing, swimming etc. can also be part of your exercise regime, keeping you engaged while helping you stay fit and active.

    Making exercise a part of your daily lifestyle will not only improve your physical health but also your mental state and will keep you active throughout your lifespan.

  • Complete nutrition to improve muscle strength & immunity.

    Adults between the ages of 40 and 65 must take active steps to strengthen their muscles for overall health.

    They need to take special care of their nutrition needs by following a well-balanced nutritional diet. At this stage, there is a need to consume nutrient-rich foods that provide the body with vital nourishment.

    Nutrients can be classified into macronutrients (viz. Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats) and micronutrients (viz. vitamins and minerals). They have a key role to play within the body. While the macronutrients essentially provide energy to the body, the micronutrients support physiological functions and metabolism. Both undernutrition and overnutrition pose several risks as you age6. Hence a well-balanced nutrition along with an active lifestyle is key to healthy living.

    Paying special attention to your nutritional needs is essential for you to stay fit, active and stress-free after 40, so you can live life non-stop.
