BACKGROUND Previous investigators have reported that maximal power increases during growth and decreases with aging. These age-related differences have been reported to persist even when power is scaled to body mass or muscle size. We hypothesized that age-related differences in maximal power were primarily related to differences in muscle size and fiber-type distribution rather than to age per se. METHODS Maximum cycling power (Pmax) and optimal pedaling rate (Vopt, a surrogate measure for… CONTINUE READING
