To investigate the relationships between the age-associated decline in peak oxygen uptake (peak V˙O2), leg muscle mass (LMM) and leg strength (LS) under the modulating effect of gender and level of physical activity (LPA, as assessed by questionnaire), we evaluated 71 sedentary subjects [males(M):females(F), 34:37], aged 20–80 years. Peak V˙O2 at maximum cycle ergometry was related to LMM (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) and LS (isokinetic dynamometry) using both standard (y · x −1) and power… CONTINUE READING
