Age-predicted maximal heart rate revisited.
OBJECTIVES We sought to determine a generalized equation for predicting maximal heart rate (HRmax) in healthy adults. BACKGROUND The age-predicted HRmax equation (i.e., 220 - age) is commonly usedExpand

Aging, Habitual Exercise, and Dynamic Arterial Compliance
BackgroundA reduction in compliance of the large-sized cardiothoracic (central) arteries is an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease with advancing age. Methods andExpand

Endurance exercise performance in Masters athletes: age-associated changes and underlying physiological mechanisms.
Older ('Masters') athletes strive to maintain or even improve upon the performance they achieved at younger ages, but declines in athletic performance are inevitable with ageing. In this review, weExpand

Regular Aerobic Exercise Prevents and Restores Age-Related Declines in Endothelium-Dependent Vasodilation in Healthy Men
BackgroundIn sedentary humans endothelium-dependent vasodilation is impaired with advancing age contributing to their increased cardiovascular risk, whereas endurance-trained adults demonstrate lowerExpand

Aging and vascular endothelial function in humans.
Advancing age is the major risk factor for the development of CVD (cardiovascular diseases). This is attributable, in part, to the development of vascular endothelial dysfunction, as indicated byExpand

Postexercise hypotension. Key features, mechanisms, and clinical significance.
Recent investigations have demonstrated that there is a sustained reduction in arterial blood pressure after a single bout of exercise, ie, postexercise hypotension (PEH). The purpose of thisExpand

Effect of acute and chronic ascorbic acid on flow-mediated dilatation with sedentary and physically active human ageing.
Peripheral conduit artery flow-mediated dilatation decreases with ageing in humans. The underlying mechanisms and efficacy of preventive strategies are unknown. Brachial artery flow-mediatedExpand

Age and gender interactions in physiological functional capacity: insight from swimming performance.
One experimental approach to studying the effects of aging on physiological functional capacity in humans is to analyze the peak exercise performance of highly trained athletes with increasing age.Expand

Invited Review: Dynamic exercise performance in Masters athletes: insight into the effects of primary human aging on physiological functional capacity.
Physiological functional capacity (PFC) is defined here as the ability to perform the physical tasks of daily life and the ease with which these tasks can be performed. For the past decade, we haveExpand

Declines in physiological functional capacity with age: a longitudinal study in peak swimming performance.
We followed up swimming performance times of 321 women and 319 men who participated in the US Masters Swimming Championships over a 12-yr period. All swimmers placed in the top 10 in their age groupExpand
