A moderate serving of high-quality protein maximally stimulates skeletal muscle protein synthesis in young and elderly subjects.
Ingestion of sufficient dietary protein is a fundamental prerequisite for muscle protein synthesis and maintenance of muscle mass and function. Elderly people are often at increased risk forExpand

Functional impact of 10 days of bed rest in healthy older adults.
BACKGROUND Many older individuals decline functionally during hospitalization, and the deleterious consequences of bed rest may be one cause. This study reports on the effect of 10 days of bed restExpand

EAA supplementation to increase nitrogen intake improves muscle function during bed rest in the elderly.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Older individuals are more likely to experience extended hospitalization and become protein malnourished during hospitalization. The concomitant compulsory inactivity results inExpand

Functional and metabolic consequences of sarcopenia.
Sarcopenia associated with the normal aging process is often combined with the detrimental effects of a sedentary lifestyle in older adults, leading to a significant reduction in reserve capacity ofExpand

Reliability of a single-session isokinetic and isometric strength measurement protocol in older men.
BACKGROUND The purposes of the current study were (a) to determine the test-retest reliability of a single-session isokinetic and isometric strength testing protocol in older healthy men, and (b) toExpand

Aging does not impair the anabolic response to a protein-rich meal.
BACKGROUND Sarcopenia is a debilitating condition afflicting the elderly that may be facilitated by insufficient or ineffectual intake of dietary protein. We previously showed that free-formExpand

Effects of maximal isometric and isokinetic resistance training on strength and functional mobility in older adults.
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to compare the changes in voluntary strength (isometric, concentric, and eccentric) and functional mobility in response to maximal isokineticExpand

Artificial gravity maintains skeletal muscle protein synthesis during 21 days of simulated microgravity.
We sought to determine the effects of longitudinal loading (artificial gravity) on skeletal muscle protein kinetics in 15 healthy young males after 21 days of 6 degrees head-down tilt bed restExpand

Reliability of isokinetic and isometric knee-extensor force in older women.
Because of the need for efficient, consistent strength measurements, the test-retest reliability of concentric, isometric, and eccentric strength; concentric work; and concentric power was determinedExpand

Effects of muscle fiber motion on diffuse correlation spectroscopy blood flow measurements during exercise
The influence of muscle fiber motion during exercise on diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS) measurements of skeletal muscle blood flow is explored. Isotonic (with muscle fiber motion) andExpand
