abstract

  • A growing body of literature suggests that regular exercise among older individuals regardless of the degree of frailty, with or without underlying chronic disease, may attenuate the consequences of age-related changes on exercise capacity. The purpose of this article is to review the effects of age-related changes on exercise capacity and the benefits of prescribing exercise to older persons.
