SLS performance was an independent predictor of the various functional measures, after adjusting for age and body mass index. Specifically, an increase in SLS time was associated with lower standing center-of-pressure velocities, greater lower limb strength, and greater 6-min walking distance. When the two groups were stratified based on their recent history of falls and clinic-based standing balance performance (SLS time), fallers with good SLS time (>30. s) showed better functional outcomes than did non-fallers with poor SLS time (≤30. s) (P's. <. 0.08) and comparable functional outcomes with non-fallers with good SLS time (P's. >. 0.11). The results indicate an important heterogeneity within fallers and non-fallers with osteoporosis and they argue for a individualized approach to rehabilitation. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.]]> Thu 22 Dec 2016 12:10:44 AEST ]]> Adherence to a Mediterranean Diet is not Associated with Risk of Sarcopenic Symptomology: A Cross-Sectional Analysis of Overweight and Obese Older Adults in Australia Thu 18 Jul 2019 11:34:39 AEST ]]> Anthropometric, physical function and general health markers of Masters athletes: a cross-sectional study 70 years old) on the outcome measures for the entire sample as well as the male and female sub-groups. A total of 156 athletes (78 male, 78 female; mean 55.7 years) provided informed consent to participate in this study. These athletes possessed substantially better anthropometric, physical function and general health characteristics than the literature for their less physically active age-matched peers. No Masters athletes were categorised as being sarcopenic, although one participant had below normal physical performance and six participants had below normal muscle strength. In contrast, significant age-related reductions in handgrip strength and increases in the number of chronic diseases and prescribed medications were observed for the overall cohort as well as the male and female sub-groups. Nevertheless, even those aged over 70 years only averaged one chronic disease and one prescribed medication. These results may suggest that participation in Masters sport helps to maintain anthropometry, physical function and general health in middle-aged and older adults. However, it is also possible that only healthier middle-aged and older adults with favourable body composition and physical function may be able to participate in Masters sport. Future research should therefore utilise longitudinal research designs to determine the health and functional benefits of Master sports participation for middle-aged and older adults.]]> Mon 23 Oct 2017 16:09:18 AEST ]]> Shoulder strength and range of motion in elite female cricket fast bowlers with and without a history of shoulder pain Mon 20 Jul 2015 13:32:43 AEST ]]> Effects of combined aerobic and resistance training in patients with Heart Failure: A meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials Mon 10 Jun 2019 08:33:40 AEST ]]> Associations between lower limb strength and gait velocity following stroke: A systematic review Mon 09 Jan 2017 10:51:48 AEST ]]> Associations of components of sarcopenic obesity with bone health and balance in older adults Fri 30 Nov 2018 15:12:45 AEST ]]> The reliability of a maximal isometric hip strength and simultaneous surface EMG screening protocol in elite, junior rugby league athletes Fri 27 Jul 2018 16:46:25 AEST ]]> Effects of Equal Volume But Different Plyometric Jump Training Intensities on Components of Physical Fitness in Physically Active Young Males Fri 15 Feb 2019 13:24:02 AEST ]]> Pilates: Effective for Developing Core Stability, but Limited Sessions Have Limited Global Benefits Fri 08 Apr 2016 07:32:43 AEST ]]> Muscle function in individuals with peripheral arterial obstructive disease: A systematic review Fri 08 Apr 2016 07:30:46 AEST ]]> Reprodutibilidade da medida da pressão arterial auscultatória durante o exercício de força [Reproducibility of auscultatory blood pressure measurement during resistance exercise] Fri 08 Apr 2016 07:18:24 AEST ]]> Validade das equações preditivas de uma repetição máxima varia de acordo com o exercício realizado em adultos jovens treinados [Validity of one repetition maximum predictive equations vary according to the exercise performed in trained young adults] Fri 07 Nov 2014 14:27:43 AEST ]]> Isokinetic Strength and Endurance in Proximal and Distal Muscles in Patients With Peripheral Artery Disease Fri 07 Nov 2014 14:00:19 AEST ]]>
