Influence of age and endurance training on metabolic rate and hormones in healthy men.

Abstract

The associations among age, maximal aerobic capacity (VO2max), and body composition with resting metabolic rate (RMR), and fasting plasma hormones were examined in endurance-trained and untrained older and younger men. A higher RMR (approximately 6%; P less than 0.05), normalized per kilogram of fat-free weight (FFW), was found in endurance-trained younger… (More)
