Effects of Dietary Leucine Supplementation on Muscle Mass and Markers of Protein Degradation in Overloaded Skeletal Muscles of Young Adult and Aged Rats
(East Carolina University, 2011)
The hypertrophic response to overload in fast-twitch skeletal muscle is impaired in aged humans and rats, and upregulation of protein degradation pathways are hypothesized to be a contributing factor. Muscle growth occurs ...
STRIDE LENGTH MANIPULATION IN YOUNG AND OLD ADULTS DURING LEVEL WALKING
(East Carolina University, 2010)
Physiological and neurological changes with healthy aging cause old adults to alter biomechanical gait strategies. Mechanical plasticity is an ambulatory strategy in which old adults rely on proximal musculature in ...
The Effect of Plantarflexor Strength Training on Gait Biomechanics in Healthy Old Adults
(East Carolina University, 2013)
Locomotion is an important and inherent part of daily life and is integral in maintaining an independent lifestyle, especially in older adults whose functional capacity has declined. Physiological changes with aging, ...
