Want to live longer? Lift weights

If you want to up your odds of living a longer, healthier life, you might want to consider lifting weights.

People who have strong muscles are more likely to reach an older age than weaker peers, according to new research from the University of Michigan.

The researchers say that it is never too late to take up muscle-building workouts - and may even be most important for older people to work on strength training than it is for younger ones.

But don't worry about bulking up: the study authors found that it's muscle strength, not mass, that makes a difference for longevity.
