1. How Muscles Work
Muscles are made of fibers. Each of these attach to a motor neuron that connects in our spinal column. A signal is sent through this neuron and tells the muscle to contract.

They studied world class athletes that were currently in their 80’s, as well as non-athletes of the same age. They found the athletes had 14% more muscle mass.
