How Healthcare Can Teach Us About Exercise Adherence
Perhaps laziness is the reason people don’t exercise in some cases, but that should not be the overarching assumption. Ironically, chalking the answer up to laziness and calling it a day is, well, lazy.

Furthermore, low muscle strength and power, but not low muscle mass, are more strongly associated with falls, fractures, and mortality.
