Study of the volatility of the scales .. What is the relationship between weightlifting and the risk of early death?

A recent medical study showed the relationship between weightlifting and deaths recorded at an early age.

The study, whose results were published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, said that lifting weights regularly can reduce the risk of people dying early, according to the British "Sky News" network.

According to the study, adults who were heavy lifting had a 9 percent lower risk of all-cause mortality.

And participated in the study, conducted by academics at the National Cancer Institute in the United States, Brookville, Maryland, 100,000 adults, the average age of 71 years.

Study participants provided information about their weightlifting and any other exercise they did. About 23 percent reported that they do not lift weights, while 16 percent said they do it regularly, once to 6 times a week.

After following them over a period of 6 years and 6 months, the study found that those who exercised weightlifting had a 9 percent lower risk of death, while the numbers linked a decline in the rates of heart disease and this sport.

In their study, the researchers noted that "lifting weights in older adults was associated with a lower incidence of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease."
