The decline of strength with age has often been attributed to declining muscle mass in older subjects. To investigate factors which might influence changes in strength across the life span, grip strength and muscle mass (as estimated by creatinine excretion and forearm circumference) were measured in 847 healthy volunteers, aged 20-100 years, from the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging. Cross-sectional and longitudinal results concur that grip strength increases into the thirties and… CONTINUE READING
