This study was designed to specify whether an individualized training program at the ventilatory threshold in elderly subjects produces greater training adaptations than a standardized training program performed at 50% of heart rate reserve. Sixteen subjects participated in the study. Maximal exercise tests were performed on a treadmill before and after the training program. Eight subjects trained at the ventilatory threshold (ITG) and eight trained at 50% of heart rate reserve (STG). The mean… CONTINUE READING
