THE EFFECT OF EXERCISE ON MUSCLE MASS IN OLDER PEOPLE: SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS OF RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIALS

Presenter: Sherrington C

This module addresses:

Question: Does exercise increase muscle mass in older people?

Conclusion: Exercise produced small improvements in muscle mass in older

people, and moderate gains in strength and mobility. Further investigation

is required to determine the optimal type to exercise to increase muscle

mass and functioning in older people.

Key Practice Points:

• Exercise increases muscle mass in people aged over 60.

• Exercise should be prescribed to prevent and reduce sarcopenia.

• Indications are that exercise should contain a strength component to

 

increase muscle mass
