Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Exercise Intervention and Running Biomechanics in Older Adults
Official Title  ICMJE Changes in Running Gait Biomechanics Following an Intervention Program in Older Runners
Brief Summary The goal of this study is to understand the effects of muscle strengthening and stretching exercise intervention on isometric muscle strength, joint flexibility and running biomechanical patterns in older recreational runners. To do so, the subjects will be assessed before and after they engage in a 8-week exercise intervention program.
