TN50#24, Be Hard to Kill, 14 June  2021

Hi Team,

Happy Monday and welcome to The Next 50 #24.

BLUF: Lifting weights makes you harder to kill.  

Need the numbers?  Check out the abstract results from this Meta-Analysis.  

Short on time, here are the highlights:

  1. 11 total studies
  2. 370,256 participants
  3. Mean follow up of 8.85 years

Based on the findings, people who lift weight are 21% harder to kill (all-cause mortality) than people who don’t exercise!  The numbers for people who lift weights and perform metabolic conditioning are even better – seriously, check out the abstract!

Some of you always want to understand things at the cellular level so here is the full text.


Have a good one, Alex
