PURPOSE Aging diminishes the ability to run fast, but the specific mechanisms responsible for this deterioration remain largely unknown. In the present study, we investigated the age-related decline in sprint running ability through a cross-sectional examination of biomechanical and skeletal muscle characteristics in 77 competitive male sprinters aged 17-82(More)
Muscle strength and mass decline in sedentary individuals with aging. The present study investigated the effects of both age and 21 weeks of progressive hypertrophic resistance training (RT) on skeletal muscle size and strength, and on myostatin and myogenin mRNA expression in 21 previously untrained young men (26.0 ± 4.3 years) and 18 older men (61.2 ± 4.1(More)
AIM This article was designed to study an interaction effect of time of day and test order-related confounding factors on daily variation in maximum muscle strength and power. METHODS Seventeen untrained men were randomized into four groups and measured at four time points (08:00 a.m., 12:00 a.m., 04:00 p.m. and 08:00 p.m.) throughout one or two days.(More)
