The purpose of this Position Stand is to provide an overview of issues critical to understanding the importance of exercise and physical activity in older adult populations. The Position Stand is divided into three sections: Section 1 briefly reviews the structural and functional changes that characterize normal human aging, Section 2 considers the extent to which exercise and physical activity can influence the aging process, and Section 3 summarizes the benefits of both long-term exercise and…

TLDR
There is still a need for validated techniques of estimating habitual physical activity to study the relationship between physical activity and health, and there is, however, a clear-cut effect of habitual activity and exercise training on muscle function.
Effects of Resistance Training on Older Adults
TLDR
Strength and muscle mass are increased following resistance training in older adults through a poorly understood series of events that appears to involve the recruitment of satellite cells to support hypertrophy of mature myofibres.
Physical activity and older adults: a review of health benefits and the effectiveness of interventions
TLDR
The evidence for a causal relationship between sedentary behaviour/physical activity programmes and cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and psycho-social health, independent living and health-related quality of life into old age is considered.
Physical Activity, Aging, and Psychological Well-Being
This review examines the effects of exercise and physical activity on the psychological well-being of older adults. Unlike most of the literature in this area, this review focuses primarily on those
THE BENEFITS OF A FUNCTIONAL EXERCISE CIRCUIT FOR OLDER ADULTS
TLDR
A functional exercise circuit such as the one employed in this study may offer promise as an effective means of promoting mobility and perceived health in older adults.
Exercise dose-response effects on quality of life and independent living in older adults.
TLDR
It was found that long-term physical activity is related to postponed disability and independent living in the oldest-old subjects and even in individuals with chronic disease, systematic participation in physical activities enhances physical function.
Postponed development of disability in elderly runners: a 13-year longitudinal study.
TLDR
Running and other aerobic exercise in elderly persons protect against disability and early mortality, and are associated with prolongation of a disability-free life.
Cardiovascular responses to exercise. Effects of aging and exercise training in healthy men.
TLDR
There is an age-associated decline in heart rate, ejection fraction, and cardiac output responses to supine exercise in healthy men and both the young and old increased peak exercise cardiac output by use of the Frank-Starling mechanism (ie, cardiac dilatation) as well as an increase in ejectedion fraction.
Continuum of cardiovascular performance across a broad range of fitness levels in healthy older men.
TLDR
Exercise training or detraining of older men results in changes in left ventricular performance that are qualitatively and quantitatively similar, regardless of the initial level of fitness before the intervention.
