Sarcopenia is age-related deterioration of muscle that results in declining ability to perform activities of daily living, causes fragility and falls, and often results in debilitating hip fractures and loss of ambulatory ability. This course examines the causes, effects and interventions for sarcopenia, and includes photos and instructions for a series of proven preventive exercises. 


 Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

  • Know how Sarcopenia develops with aging
  • Understand how the brain and nervous system become less responsive with age
  • Understand how catabolic stress decreases lean body mass
  • Use exercises to develop lean body mass (exercises provided)
Course content may take a few minutes to display fully.

I see the course "expires" in 2016. That is appropriate since there has been a lot of research on physical activity and aging in the recent years.
