 Summary: We studied prospectively the midlife handgrip strength, living habits, and parents’ longevity as predictors of length of life up to becoming a centenarian. The participants were 2,239 men from the Honolulu Heart Program/Honolulu–Asia Aging Study who were born before the end of June 1909 and who took part in baseline physical assessment in 1965–1968, when they were 56–68 years old.High midlife grip strength and long-lived mother may indicate resilience to aging, which, combined with healthy lifestyle, increases the probability of extreme longevity.

Key Takeaways

Grip strength and longevity of your mother are powerful predictors of your own longevity. Is grip strength really correlated with longevity? Probably not grip strength exclusively, but grip strength is an easy value to measure and likely serves as a proxy for overall strength.
