We employed a whole body magnetic resonance imaging protocol to examine the influence of age, gender, body weight, and height on skeletal muscle (SM) mass and distribution in a large and heterogeneous sample of 468 men and women. Men had significantly (P < 0.001) more SM in comparison to women in both absolute terms (33.0 vs. 21.0 kg) and relative to body mass (38.4 vs. 30.6%). The gender differences were greater in the upper (40%) than lower (33%) body (P < 0.01). We observed a reduction in… Expand

Assessment and definition of lean body mass deficiency in the elderly
TLDR
Using recent MRI data of a population of 446 healthy free-living Caucasian volunteers, a low skeletal muscle mass and sarcopenia were defined as a skeletal Muscle mass >1 and >2 s.d. below the mean value obeserved in younger adults at age 18–39 years. Expand
Measurement of Skeletal Muscle mass of Japanese Men and Women Aged 18-84 by Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis Focusing on the Difference in Measured Values Produced by Different Equipment: ─機器による測定値の違いに着目して─
TLDR
The present findings suggest that BIA values might differ depending on the measuring instruments, and demonstrate that, although muscle mass loss occurred in both male and female, muscle loss rates were greater in male. Expand
Thigh muscle volume in relation to age, sex and femur volume
TLDR
The data suggest that the muscle/bone ratio captures the intra-individual loss of muscle mass during ageing, and that the age-related loss of Muscle mass may be underestimated when normalised to height squared. Expand
Gender differences in regional body composition and somatotrophic influences of IGF-I and leptin.
TLDR
The main phenotypic gender differences in body composition are that men have more of their muscle mass in their arms and women have more than half of their fatmass in their legs and gender differences exist in the relationship between somatotrophic hormones and lean soft tissue mass. Expand
[Aging changes in muscle mass of Japanese].
TLDR
Findings indicated that lower limb muscle mass was the first to begin to decrease and also showed the greatest decrease with advancing age, with particular emphasis on the lower limbs. Expand
Prevalence of sarcopenia and predictors of skeletal muscle mass in healthy, older men and women.
TLDR
Sarcopenia is common in adults over the age of 65 years and increases with age in women and men and interventions to target nutrition, strength training, and testosterone replacement therapy should be further investigated for their role in preventing muscle loss with age. Expand
Gender differences in anthropometric predictors of physical performance in older adults.
TLDR
Results implicate the prioritized importance of healthy weight and muscle maintenance in older women and men for maintained physical functioning with aging. Expand
Skeletal Muscle and Physical Activity in Portuguese Community-Dwelling Older Adults.
TLDR
It is suggested that PA exerts a significant role in the explanation of TB-SM, the total body skeletal muscle mass determined by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry and questionnaire, which was higher in the youngest age group when compared with the oldest in males and females. Expand
Age-related, site-specific muscle loss in 1507 Japanese men and women aged 20 to 95 years.
TLDR
It is indicated that sarcopenia is observed as a site-specific loss of skeletal muscle mass, especially for the quadriceps and abdominal muscles, in Japanese men and women aged 20 to 95 years. Expand
Indicators of Absolute and Relative Changes in Skeletal Muscle Mass during Adulthood and Ageing
TLDR
Variables SMMI and PSMM were extracted as the most sensitive to age, with SMMI being gender-independent while showing the parabolic and sinusoidal form of change as function of ageing in males and females, respectively; andPSMM being sex-dependent while showing a linear trend of decrease in both sexes.

Appendicular skeletal muscle mass: effects of age, gender, and ethnicity.
TLDR
The hypotheses that skeletal muscle is reduced in the elderly and that whole body 40K counting-derived total body potassium (TBK) provides a reasonable indirect assessment of skeletal muscle mass are supported. Expand
Age changes in body composition revealed by computed tomography.
TLDR
Although fat mass was only slightly less in older men, there were clear distributional differences in fat between the age groups, and analysis of fat accumulation between muscles of the abdomen and leg indicated fat infiltration into lean tissue in the older men. Expand

TLDR
The present results indicate that skeletal muscle is not a homogenous component, but has at least three independent factors, gender, weight, and age, influencing distribution, and with increasing age there is a relative reduction in upper muscle distribution. Expand
Predictors of skeletal muscle mass in elderly men and women
TLDR
Age-related loss of muscle mass and strength occurs in relatively healthy, well-nourished elderly men and women and has a multifactorial basis. Expand
Normal values for handgrip strength in 920 men and women aged over 65 years, and longitudinal changes over 4 years in 620 survivors.
TLDR
The maximal grip strength of the hand has been measured in a random sample of 359 men and 561 women aged over 65 years living in their own homes and a significant decline was found in reported use, customary activity and health scores, and in women in body mass and psychological health. Expand
Role of muscle loss in the age-associated reduction in VO2 max.
TLDR
It is concluded that in both sexes, a large portion of the age-associated decline in VO2max in non-endurance-trained individuals is explicable by the loss of muscle mass, which is observed with advancing age. Expand
Arm and leg composition determined by computed tomography in young and elderly men.
TLDR
Methods to estimate in vivo physiological CSA, which is considered the best means of normalizing strength, have been demonstrated in this study and illustrate that, due to the substantially reduced amount of 'pure' muscle tissue in the elderly, comparisons of relative strength with other populations may be misleading.

Total body potassium and body fat: relevance to aging.
TLDR
The body-composition changes in normal aging is investigated in a cross-sectional study of 188 healthy volunteers aged 20-89 y, which examines the differences in body cell mass and fat as a function of age. Expand
Influence of diet and exercise on skeletal muscle and visceral adipose tissue in men.
TLDR
Findings indicate that DA and DR result in a greater preservation of MRI-SM, mobilization of SAT from the abdominal region, by comparison with the gluteal-femoral region, and improved functional capacity when compared with DO in obese men. Expand
Relationship of body composition, muscle strength, and aerobic capacity to bone mineral density in older men and women
TLDR
It is concluded that body mass and grip strength, but not aerobic capacity, significantly predict bone density in elderly women, and VO2max per kilogram lean mass and back strength both make significant contributions to the prediction of spine mineral density. Expand
