OXIDATIVE STRESS RESPONSES TO MAXIMAL TEST FOLLOWING EXPLOSIVE TYPE RESISTANCE TRAINING IN 70-75 YR OLDS – 2013


INTRODUCTION
– Low frequency, moderate intensity, explosive-type resistance training (EMRT) is highly beneficial in elderly subjects
– Muscle strength and power, with a systemic adaptive response of anti-oxidant and stress-induced markers
AIM/METHODS
– Evaluate the impact of EMRT on oxidative stress induced in people (70-75 yrs) by a single bout of acute, intense exercise
(1) 16 subjects assigned to not exercising group (n=8) or trained group performing EMRT protocol for 12-weeks (n=8)
(2) submitted to a graded maximal exercise stress test (GXT) at baseline and after the 12-weeks of EMRT protocol
CONCLUSION
– EMRT induced a cellular adaptation allowing healthy elderly trained subjects to cope with the oxidative stress induced by an acute exercise
