Effects of resistance training on fitness and equilibrium sensory function in old adults
ABSTRACT
Effects of resistance training on fitness and equilibrium sensory function in old adults. Exercise Science, 13(1): 101-112, 2004. The purpose of this study was to investigate effects of 8-week resistance training on fitness and equilibrium sensory function of old adults. Twelve healthy old adults (men = 5, women = 7) who were 77 years of mean age participated in resistance training program. They were trained for one hour a day, three times per week. We measured subjects' fitness and equilibrium sensory function levels by computerized dynamic posturography, and analyzed mean differences of observed variables by paired t - test between the pre and post test. The data indicated that there are significant differences in grip strength (p<.01), scores of tandem test (p<.01), walk test with eyes closed 50 steps (p<.05), equilibrium score in condition 1 (p<.01), and LF-latency (p<.05) of posturography between pre and post test. The results of this study reveal that resistance training exercise will improve fitness and equilibrium sensory function, and enhance their healthy life style to old adults.
Key words: training program, resistance training, proprioceptive exercise, posturography
