Loss of maximal explosive power of lower limbs after 2 weeks of disuse and incomplete recovery after retraining in older adults.

Loss of maximal explosive power of lower limbs after 2

The improvement and recovery of muscle power after disuse in older adults and elderly individuals is of particular interest in view of its relevance for independent mobility and quality of life in the elderly population (Reid & Fielding, 2012).

Loss of maximal explosive power of lower limbs after two

In this study, we examined the changes in maximal explosive power (MEP) of lower limbs induced by a 14-day disuse (bed-rest, BR) and a subsequent 14-day retraining, to assess whether the impact of disuse was greater in older than in young men, and to analyse the causes of such adaptations.

Loss of maximal explosive power of lower limbs after 2

In this study, we examined the changes in maximal explosive power (MEP) of lower limbs induced by a 14‐day disuse (bed‐rest, BR) and a subsequent 14‐day retraining, to assess whether the impact of disuse was greater in older than in young men, and to analyse the causes of such adaptations.

Impact of inactivity on muscles more severe for older

In the elderly subjects there was a difference in single muscle fibre response to disuse, a more pronounced loss of muscle mass and a change in how muscle contraction is controlled by the nervous system compared to young individuals. Furthermore the …

Maximal explosive power of the lower limbs before and

the loss of maximal explosive power was similar between the two groups (−25.2 and −29.5 % in the higher and lower energy intake group, respectively; P = 0.440).

Maximal explosive power of the lower limbs – SpringerLink

The effects of lower or higher diet energy intake on the decline of maximal explosive power of the lower limbs, as determined on a sledge ergometer before and after 35 days of bed rest, were investigated on two matched groups of young healthy volunteers. Body composition and lean volume of the lower limb were also measured.

Impact of inactivity on muscles more severe for older people

The disuse of muscles due to a sedentary lifestyle or short periods of inactivity caused by hospitalisation can dramatically enhance the decline in muscle mass, metabolic health and functional capacity. This loss of muscle power caused by disuse can be especially detrimental in the elderly.
