I've read various places that extra body weight can increase your risk of many diseases. My question is this: Do many of these added risks apply to a bodybuilding enthusiast who has extra pounds of muscle? If I'm age 50, 6'0" 300lbs, 10% bodyfat and work on my cardio health often, should I still expect it to affect my mortality rate as I age?
I'm sure there are many studies done concerning obese people, but they seem to refer to BMI often. Since the BMI doesn't account for muscles, would anyone like to chime in? - No flamers hopefully. Here's just one URL for ****s:
Should an average 'bodybuilder' who doesn't compete set a limit to his weight for health purposes as the aging process sets in?
- Ok I'm not 35 but I didn't know where else to post this. And yes, I didn't do much research but I'm more likely to hear an unbiased opinion from this forum than most articles. Thanks for any thoughtful responses, and **** you to other posters.
