  • Change in muscle volume [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12weeks, 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in maximal strength (one repetition maximum) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4weeks, 8weeks, 12weeks, 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Strength is measured as the maximum weight on the training equipment that can be lifted only one time (= one repetition maximum).

The Effects of Low- and High-intensity Resistance Exercise on Force-velocity Characteristics in Older Adults
Not Provided

The purpose of this study is to compare the impact of high- and low-intensity resistance exercise on force-velocity characteristics, muscle mass and inflammatory processes in older adults. As all training protocols are designed to end with maximal effort, effects are expected to be similar between groups.
