Disabil Rehabil 2011;33:87–97.[OpenUrl][1][CrossRef][2][PubMed][3] With increasing age, muscle mass and muscle strength of the extremities diminish due to neuromuscular changes.1 These age-related changes are associated with increased physical disability and risk of falling.2 Progressive resistance strength training (PRT) increases muscle strength in older adults… Expand

Can progressive resistance strength training reduce physical disability in older adults? A meta-analysis study
TLDR
Although the effect size is small, the intervention groups showed reduced physical disability when compared to the control groups and it is suggested therapists use responsive outcome measures and multi-component intervention approach to maximise the effect. Expand
Progressive resistance strength training for improving physical function in older adults.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that PRT is an effective intervention for improving physical functioning in older people, including improving strength and the performance of some simple and complex activities, and some caution is needed with transferring these exercises for use with clinical populations.

Longitudinal muscle strength changes in older adults: influence of muscle mass, physical activity, and health.
TLDR
Although muscle mass changes influenced the magnitude of the strength changes over time, strength declines in spite of muscle mass maintenance or even gain emphasize the need to explore the contribution of other cellular, neural, or metabolic mediators of strength changes. Expand
