PURPOSE This investigation examined the effect of 6 months of high- or low-intensity resistance exercise (REX) on bone mineral density (BMD) and biochemical markers of bone turnover in adults aged 60-83 yr. METHODS Sixty-two men and women (68.4 +/- 6 yr) were stratified for strength and randomly assigned to a control (CON, N = 16), low-intensity (LEX, N =(More)
OBJECTIVES This investigation examined the effect of 6 months of high- or low-intensity resistance exercise on muscular strength and endurance and stair climbing ability in adults aged 60 to 83. DESIGN A randomized controlled trial. SETTING University of Florida Center for Exercise Science. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-two men and women completed the study(More)
PURPOSE Obesity may be a state of chronic oxidative stress. Oxidative stress may be the mechanism underlying the development of co-morbidities in obesity. This review provides a summary of the available evidence regarding systemic oxidative stress in young, older and clinical obese populations. METHODS Medline was searched for all available articles(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine obesity effects on outcomes following inpatient rehabilitation in patients following primary total knee arthroplasty or revision total knee arthroplasty. DESIGN Retrospective, comparative study. SETTING Fifty-bed, university-affiliated rehabilitation hospital. PATIENTS Obese (N = 139; body mass index >30 kg/m(2)) and non-obese (N(More)
OBJECTIVE To retrospectively examine the effects of sex and age on the inpatient rehabilitation outcomes of patients after total hip arthroplasty (THA). DESIGN Exploratory, retrospective study. SETTING A university-affiliated rehabilitation hospital. PARTICIPANTS Male and female THA patients (N=332) were stratified into age brackets (<65y, 65-84y,(More)
AIM Resistance exercise performed at low loads (20-30% of maximal strength) with blood flow restriction (BFR) acutely increases protein synthesis and induces hypertrophy when performed chronically. We investigated myogenic and proteolytic mRNA expression 8 h following an acute bout of knee extension exercise. METHODS Fifteen subjects (22.8 ± 3.7 years,(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effect of 6 months of high- or low-intensity resistance exercise on aerobic capacity and treadmill time to exhaustion in adults aged 60 to 83 years. METHODS Sixty-two men and women completed the study protocol. Subjects were matched for strength and randomly assigned to a control (n = 16), low-intensity exercise (LEX, n = 24), or(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined whether obesity affected inpatient rehabilitation outcomes after total hip arthroplasty (THA). RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES This was a retrospective, comparative study conducted using a computerized medical database derived from THA patients at a university-affiliated rehabilitation hospital (data from 2002 to 2005).(More)
This study examined the effects of 6 months of resistance exercise (RX) on basal and post-aerobic exercise lipid peroxidation (LIPOX). Men and women [n=62, mean (SD) age 68.4 (6) years] were divided randomly into either a control (n=16, CON), low-intensity training [LEX n=24; 50% one-repetition maximum (1RM), 13 repetitions/exercise], or high-intensity(More)
OBJECTIVE This multicenter study examined whether inpatient rehabilitation outcomes following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were influenced by BMI. METHODS AND PROCEDURES This was a retrospective, comparative study conducted using a computerized medical database and medical records derived from TKA patients, at 15 independent rehabilitation hospitals (N =(More)
