The aim of the present investigation was to determine whether muscle force per physiological cross sectional area (PCSA) of the lateral gastrocnemius (GL) of elderly males increased following a 12-month physical training programme. Eleven elderly males were assigned to a 12-month training programme (TRN mean age 72.7 ± 3.3 years, mean ± SD) and eight elderly males were allocated to a control group (CTRL, 73.9 ± 4.0 years) who maintained their habitual physical activity levels.
