‘Core Values’

workoutWomen outlive men two-to-one. But it hasn’t always been this way.

I read a study recently that found men and women died of so-called natural causes at about the same rate until about 1900. But by the year 1970, men have become twice as likely to pass away of old age than women.

Why is this?

Because of heart disease and stoke.

Ok, then why are men more likely today to die of hear
t disease and stroke compared to women?

Men appear to be more vulnerable to these diseases because their body fat — called “adiposity” — tends to collect between the chest and hips. And it is between these areas where men need to work on their “core” values.

By that I mean men should focus their exercise to include leg-lifts, full sit-ups and weightlifting that strengthens the core muscles. This combined with a proper diet will do wonders for men’s health.

So wise up, men, and get with the program.
