Another study that proves our point

Pete has been saying for years, move it or lose it. He’s also been saying that inactivity causes the deep muscles that support the skeletal structure to start to shut off and place increased load on the more peripheral muscles. Now a study proves it:

This was my favorite part of the article:

Lead researcher Dr Daniel Belavy said prolonged inactivity
shrunk the deep muscles that protected the mens’ backs. He said that in some cases it took six months to recover but even then the muscles did not return to their normal size.

Dr Belavy said surface muscles closer to the skin, stomach and back became overactive, a condition which persisted for up to a year after returning to normal activity levels.
