Chapter five -- The Necessity of Active Muscle Metabolism for Healthy Aging: Muscular Activity Throughout the Entire DayAbstract; 1 Sedentary time equals muscular inactivity; 2 The goal is to replace as much sedentary time as possible with an equal amount of safe and effective muscular activity throughout the day; 2.1 For Individuals to Age Optimally; 2.2 For Workplace Wellness and Other Programs to be Successful in Preventing Unnecessary Disease; 3 We have reached a point in human history where the ubiquitous act of sitting in a chair has surpassed sleeping as the most abundant behavior
4 There are many detrimental effects directly caused by many hours per day of muscular inactivity, regardless of age5 The metabolic rate of muscle is determined by whether or not there are ongoing acute periods of contractile activity or muscular inactivity, regardless of age; 6 When active, muscle in elderly people or animals retains its ability to display healthy metabolic responses; 7 The tenets of inactivity physiology for promoting healthy aging; 8 In summary, the direct causes of unhealthy versus healthy aging with respect to metabolism are often rooted in muscle physiology
