How do you build muscle for longevity? Welcome to the New Year and new health goals! Dr. Jockers is coming in strong with a powerful episode on what it takes to build muscle the right way.

Did you know that the overall muscle mass that you have is inversely correlated with the morbidity and mortality rate that you’ll have? So the more muscle you have, the less chance that you will develop a chronic disease.

Lean body mass is super important! Whether you’re young or old and looking to have healthy muscle so that you can look and feel great too, then Dr. Jockers’s comprehensive guide on building healthy muscle mass is your next listen!

Learn about sarcopenia, myokines, and the difference between anabolic and catabolic modes to improve muscle mass in the long run. 

Your health is a long game, so beware of the quick fixes and body-building advice. Dr. Jockers will spot you as you build muscle for longevity rather than just short-term gains! Please join us.

Please join us and please give us a five-star review if you find this episode to be of value. Thank you!


“The more muscle you have, the better your body’s going to be at burning fat for fuel.”
