As we age, starting around age 35, we start to lose about a half-pound to a pound of muscle every year if we are not actively trying to replace it. The good news is that if you are strength training regularly, you can maintain your muscle mass, or even better, increase your muscle mass at any age. Muscle is a key component in metabolic health, aging, hormones, etc., and if you are doing some strength training, you need to feed your muscles properly with protein for repair and recovery.
