  • Relationship between protein intake and skeletal muscle in older active adults 

    Patterson, Kaitlyn M.; Tribby, Aaron C.; Stover, Caitlin D.; Lajza, David G.; Geddam, David A.R.; Abe, Takashi; Dalbo, Vincent J.; Young, Kaelin C. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2014-05)
    Sarcopenia, loss of skeletal muscle in older adults, can lead to serious health consequences. Several non-pharmacological strategies have been suggested to prevent sarcopenia, one of which is increased protein consumption ...
  • Site-specific associations of muscle thickness with bone mineral density in middle-aged and older men and women 

    Abe, Takashi; Loenneke, Jeremy P.; Young, Kaelin C.; Nahar, Vinayak K.; Hollaway, Kaitlyn M.; Stover, Caitlin D.; Ford, M. Allison; Bass, Martha A.; Owens, Scott G.; Loftin, Mark (Akadémiai Kiadó, 2016-06)
    It is unknown whether age-related site-specific muscle loss is associated with areal bone mineral density (aBMD) in older adults. To examine the relationships between aBMD and whole-body muscle thickness distribution, 97 ...
  • Site-specific thigh muscle loss as an independent phenomenon for age-related muscle loss in middle-aged and older men and women 

    Abe, Takashi; Patterson, Kaitlyn M.; Stover, Caitlin D.; Geddam, David A.R.; Tribby, Aaron C.; Lajza, David G.; Young, Kaelin C. (Springer, 2014-06)
    The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA)-determined appendicular lean mass (aLM) and ultrasound-measured thigh muscle thickness (MTH) ratio and between aLM ...
  • Skeletal muscle mass, bone mineral density, and walking performance in masters cyclists 

    Abe, Takashi; Nahar, Vinayak K.; Young, Kaelin C.; Patterson, Kaitlyn M.; Stover, Caitlin D.; Lajza, David G.; Tribby, Aaron C.; Geddam, David A.R.; Ford, M. Allison; Bass, Martha A.; Loftin, Mark (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2014-06-11)
    Exercise mode and intensity/duration are important factors for influencing muscle morphology and function as well as bone. However, it is unknown whether masters cyclists who undergo regular moderate-to high-intensity ...
  • Stage of exercise change model and attitudes toward exercise in older adults 

    Rich, S. C.; Rogers, Michael E. (Ammons Scientific, 2001-08)
    This study examined the attitudes toward exercise held by older adults within different stages of the exercise change model for the purpose of aiding health professionals in developing effective approaches that engage older ...
  • Ten weeks of branched-chain amino acid supplementation improves select performance and immunological variables in trained cyclists 

    Kephart, Wesley C.; Wachs, Taylor D.; Mac, Thompson, R.; Mobley, C. Brooks; Fox, Carlton D.; McDonald, James R.; Ferguson, Brian S.; Young, Kaelin C.; Nie, Ben; Martin, Jeffrey S.; Company, Joseph M.; Pascoe, David D.; Arnold, Robert D.; Moon, Jordan R.; Roberts, Michael D. (Springer Vienna, 2016-03)
    We examined if supplementing trained cyclists (32 +/- A 2 year, 77.8 +/- A 2.6 kg, and 7.4 +/- A 1.2 year training) with 12 g/day (6 g/day l-Leucine, 2 g/day l-Isoleucine and 4 g/day l-Valine) of either branched-chain amino ...
  • Training to reduce postural sway and increase functional reach in the elderly 

    Rogers, Michael E.; Fernandez, Jeffrey E.; Bohlken, Ruth M. (Springer New York, 2001-12)
    Poor balance is one of the most common risk factors for falling, a common cause of work-related injury and death. To evaluate the effects of a 10-week intervention program on balance in older adults, 12 participants aged ...
  • Validity of ultrasound prediction equations for total and regional muscularity in middle-aged and older men and women 

    Abe, Takashi; Loenneke, Jeremy P.; Young, Kaelin C.; Thiebaud, Robert S.; Nahar, Vinayak K.; Hollaway, Kaitlyn M.; Stover, Caitlin D.; Ford, M. Allison; Bass, Martha A.; Loftin, Mark (Elsevier Science Inc., 2015-02)
    To test the validity of published equations, 79 Caucasian adults (40 men and 39 women) aged 50-78 y had muscle thickness (MT) measured by ultrasound at nine sites of the body. Fat-free mass (FFM), lean soft tissue mass ...
