Strength and endurance training prescription in healthy and frail elderly
(Aging and Disease, 2014) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Aging is associated with declines in the neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems, resulting in an impaired capacity to perform daily activities. Frailty is an age-associated biological syndrome characterized by decreases ...
Effects of different concurrent resistance and aerobic training frequencies on muscle power and muscle quality in trained elderly men: a randomized clinical trial
(Aging and Disease, 2016) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Muscle power is a strong predictor of functional status in the elderly population and is required to perform different daily activities. To compare the effects of different weekly training frequencies on muscle power and ...
Functional and cognitive impairment prevention through early physical activity for geriatric hospitalized patients: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial
(BioMed Central, 2015) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Background: Frail older adults have reduced functional and physiological reserves, rendering them more vulnerable to the effects of hospitalization, which frequently results in failure to recover from the pre-hospitalization ...
The chronic effects of low- and high-intensity resistance training on muscular fitness in adolescents
(Public Library of Science, 2016) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
To compare the effects of high-load, low-repetition maximum (LRM) and low-load, high-repetition maximum (HRM) resistance training regimens on muscular fitness in untrained adolescents. Forty-five untrained adolescents ...
The influence of ACE ID and ACTN3 R577X polymorphisms on lower-extremity function in older women in response to high-speed power training
(BioMed Central, 2013) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Background: We studied the influence of the ACE I/D and ACTN3 R577X polymorphisms (single or combined) on lower-extremity function in older women in response to high-speed power training. Methods: One hundred and thirty-nine ...
