Regular resistance exercise training and a balanced diet may counteract the age-related muscular decline on a molecular level. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of elastic band resistance training and nutritional supplementation on circulating muscle growth and degradation factors, physical performance and muscle quality (MQ) of institutionalized elderly. Within the Vienna Active Ageing Study, 91 women aged 83.6 (65.0–92.2) years were randomly assigned to one of the three… CONTINUE READING
