One article on PainSci cites Webber 2022: What Works for Pain?

PainSci notes on Webber 2022:

Webber et al studied the effect on all-cause mortality of muscle strengthening specifically — an emphasis on wearing out muscles relatively quickly by lifting heavy things, as opposed to huffing and puffing aerobically. They identified a robust drop in mortality, about 20% lower in people who did 2–6 weekly sessions compared to none or just one.
