The age-related decline in maximal physical performance of healthy subjects may be attributed both to the aging process per se and/or to a progressive reduction in physical activity. In two groups of master athletes, power (P) or endurance (E) trained (n = 115; aged 40–78 years), the degree and rate of the age-related deterioration of the maximal instantaneous muscle power (peak power,W peak, and the relative contribution ofquantitative (muscle mass) andqualitative factors possibly underlying… CONTINUE READING
