Progressive resistance training improves torque capacity and strength in mobility-limited older adults.

08:00 EDT 27th August 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Progressive resistance training improves torque capacity and strength in mobility-limited older adults."

Progressive resistance training (PRT) is consistently shown to improve muscle strength in older adults. The efficacy of PRT to improve muscle fatigue in older adults with demonstrated mobility-limitations remains unclear.

Strength Training Effects on Muscle Forces and Contributions to Whole-Body Movement in Cerebral Palsy.

Strength training is often prescribed for children with cerebral palsy (CP); however, links between strength gains and mobility are unclear. Nine children (age 14 ± 3 years; GMFCS I-III) with s...

EFFECTS OF ISOKINETIC ECCENTRIC VERSUS TRADITIONAL LOWER BODY RESISTANCE TRAINING ON MUSCLE FUNCTION: EXAMINING A MULTIPLE-JOINT SHORT TERM TRAINING MODEL.

Early adaptations of eccentric training show several advantages over concentric training. The purpose of this study was to quantify the effects of 4-weeks of multi-joint eccentric versus traditional l...

The effects of swimming training on arterial function, muscular strength, and cardiorespiratory capacity in postmenopausal women with stage 2 hypertension.

Aging is associated with progressive decreases in arterial health as well as muscular strength and cardiorespiratory capacity. It is crucial to prevent or reduce the negative effects of aging on vascu...

Using Motor Imagery Training to Increase Quadriceps Strength: A Pilot Study.

Motor imagery training implements neural adaptation theory to improve muscle strength without physically performing muscle contractions. To date, motor imagery training research regarding the efficacy...

Physiological adaptations to resistance training in rats selectively bred for low and high response to aerobic exercise training.

What is the central question of this study? Can phenotypic traits associated with low response to one mode of training be extrapolated to other exercise-inducible phenotypes? The present study investi...

Improving Mobility in Diabetic Patients Through Resistance Training

Impaired mobility is a major health problem affecting many subjects with diabetes mellitus. It is associated with loss of quality of life and it is a strong predictor for poor health outco...

A Comparison of Weighted Vest Exercise and Strength Training

The purpose of this study is to evaluate two types of exercise therapy designed to improve muscle power and mobility: weighted vest exercise vs. progressive resistance training.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.

The internal resistance of a material to moving some parts of it parallel to a fixed plane, in contrast to stretching (TENSILE STRENGTH) or compression (COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH). Ionic crystals are brittle because, when subjected to shear, ions of the same charge are brought next to each other, which causes repulsion.

The capacity of an organism to defend itself against pathological processes or the agents of those processes. This most often involves innate immunity whereby the organism responds to pathogens in a generic way. The term disease resistance is used most frequently when referring to plants.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

An electrophoretic technique for assaying the binding of one compound to another. Typically one compound is labeled to follow its mobility during electrophoresis. If the labeled compound is bound by the other compound, then the mobility of the labeled compound through the electrophoretic medium will be retarded.
