The Dr. Bortz Lecture: Anti-Aging Benefits of Regular Exercise and Increased Cardiorespiratory Fitness
Barry A. Franklin
Currently, the ‘fastest growing’ subset of the population are those over the age of 85. Numerous studies now suggest that regular exercise prevents cellular senescence. This presentation, geared to the health-fitness practitioner, will review seminal and recent studies regarding the impact of regular aerobic exercise/resistance training on aerobic capacity, musculoskeletal strength/endurance, cardiovascular and all-cause mortality, cognitive and sexual function, the postponement of disability, fundamentals of exercise prescription for older adults, and inspirational case studies.
