Resumen

BEHPOOR, Naser et al. The Effect of a Group Exercise Program on Muscular Function among Fall-Prone Elderly Women. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.2, pp. 567-571. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022012000200034.

In a sampled population of fall-prone elderly women, an exercise protocol was performed for 12 weeks on experimental group and at the end of exercise period, the strength and endurance of muscles and SF-6 Health Surveys were analyzed. Results showed that endurance and strength of muscles and also physical activity were improved in experimental group (P<0.05). Group exercise program causes improvement in both strength and endurance of muscles in fall-prone elderly women. The effect of group exercise program on women may be related to differences in central nervous system of this gender in comparison with men.
