The purpose of this study was to compare and examine the effects of obesity on functional fitness and anti-aging hormones in normal weight and overweight elderly women.
Twenty subjects participated in this study and were divided into two groups as metabolically obese, normal weight elderly women group (MONWG, n=10) and overweight obese elderly women group (OWOG, n=10) in B metropolitan city. The variables of functional fitness and anti-aging hormones were measured in all the subjects. All data was analyzed by independent t-test by using SPSS 18.0.
In the case of functional fitness, the OWOG was a higer than MONWG in the 2 kg dumbbell curl, and MONWG was faster than OWOG in the 2.44 m up-and go. But there was no significant difference in the chair stand, sit and reach, back scratch, and 2-minute walk. In the case of anti-aging hormones, the OWOG was higher than MONWG in the GH, testosterone, and DHEA-S.
It is concluded that the body composition is more important than the body weight in the elderly women. The elderly women with more muscle mass showed more positive results in upper extremity muscle strength and anti-aging hormones levels. The body weight had a greater impact in the agility test.
Key words: overweight, obesity, elderly women, functional fitness, anti-aging hormone
