Question: If I stop exercising are my muscles going to turn to fat?

Answer: After age twenty, if we don't exercise and keep our muscles active, we begin gradually losing our muscle mass. Since most people who are inactive weigh more in their later years the conclusion is simple...they have replaced a lot of their muscle mass with fat.

Notice that I didn't say that their muscle has turned to fat, because muscle can never turn to fat, and fat can't turn to muscle. But muscle can be maintained and rebuilt and fat can be burned off at any age.

Muscular strength exercises are the quickest way to reshape, build, strengthen and tighten all the major muscle groups of the body helping you get that fit/lean look.
