Even low-intensity activity lowers the risk of a whole range of conditions, including coronary heart disease, Parkinson’s and type 2 diabetes. In fact, preserving your muscles helps reduce your risk of mortality from all causes. In future, should you become inactive due to disease, illness or hospitalisation, being stronger and healthier improves your chance of a positive outcome.
