Can Your Strength Predict Your Death?

August 05, 2015 1 min read

It may seem a bit hard to believe, but according to a physiologist at the University of Michigan Medical School, your strength may be a better indication of your cardiovascular health than your BMI! In 2014, Mark Peterson PhD. published the results of a study that evaluated strength as a means of determining cardiometabolic risk in over 1,400 children. strength predict death In the study, Peterson evaluated cardiometabolic factors (BMI, blood pressure, blood glucose, etc.) among the children, as well as their level of physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, and muscular strength (adjusted for their body mass). Do you know what he found? The stronger the child, the lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and metabolic disorders. So what does this mean? Simply put: the stronger you are, the healthier you will be. Muscular strength may not directly affect your lifespan, but it will lower your risk of disease--specifically the two most common health threats in the U.S.: metabolic disorders (like diabetes) and cardiovascular disease (the #1 killer in the world). To get healthier, get stronger!
