Dr Oz showed how your muscle changes as you age.  After the age of 45, there are big changes in how your body works and you lose 1% of muscles mass every year.  When you are young, muscle is thick and healthy but as you age, the muscle gets thinner and thinner and more fat emerges.  As we lose muscles mass from a sedentary lifestyle, we lose muscle tone and our muscles can atrophy.  Even minor amounts of atrophy can cause huge problems for strength and coordination.
