It can be hard to see that most of the posts on these social media sites are so curated, edited and filtered!

By doing resistance based workouts such as the PPD method you increase your muscle mass. Unfortunately lean muscle mass naturally decreases with age. If you don’t do anything to counteract this the percentage of fat in your body will increase over time, why we often feel a bit more ‘jiggly’ as we get older even though we feel we are looking after ourselves.
