Benefits Of Lifelong Exercise

If you have a passion for sports at a young age and stick with it through old age, what can you expect to gain from this lifelong pursuit of performance?

Researchers figured that the active old timers had the athletic ability and muscle activation profile of someone 40 or even 50 years younger.
