Is muscle power output a key factor in the age-related decline in physical performance? A comparison of muscle cross section, chair-rising test and jumping power

Ageing compromises locomotor capacity and is associated with an increased risk of falls. Several lines of evidence indicate that both changes in muscle mass and performance are causative. Most studies, however, weiter...
