Dr. Robert Drapkin knows a thing or two about aging. However, the 70-year-old doctor and bodybuilder also seems to know how to out-train this natural occurrence.
In other words, Drapkin has found a way to build lean muscle mass in a demographic (those 55 years of age and older) that is naturally at risk of muscle mass loss and function, a condition known as agerelated sarcopenia or sarcopenia with aging; while addressing additional ageing factors in the process. “Cells are genetically programmed to divide a number of times. An aging cell loses the ability to divide and dies,” Drapkin explains. “Cells collectively make up tissues and organs, and these tissues and organs function only as well as their component cells.”
