²0–01– ²8 ACSM Position Stand Exercise and PA for Older Adults Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ) used to determine level of evidence: Evidence Level A: overwhelming evidence from RCTs and/or observational studies consistent pattern of findings on the basis of substantial data Evidence Level B: strong evidence from a combination of RCT and/or observational studies some results are inconsistent with the overall conclusion Evidence Level C: generally positive or suggestive evidence from a smaller number of observational studies and/or uncontrolled or nonrandomized trials Evidence Level D: panel consensus judgment that the strength of the evidence is insufficient to place it in categories A through C Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2009 Jul;41(7):1510-30. doi: 10.1249/MSS.0b013e3181a0c95c. American College of Sports Medicine position stand. Exercise and physical activity for older adults. Normal Human Aging Structural and functional decline: Physiological changes affect virtually every system in the body: Example: Maximal aerobic power and skeletal muscle performance both decline. Example: changing body composition. Evidence Level A Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2009 Jul;41(7):1510-30. doi: 10.1249/MSS.0b013e3181a0c95c. American College of Sports Medicine position stand.

²0–01– ²8 Normal Human Aging Declining physical activity: Older adults in general are less active than younger counterparts. Among older adults, the type of PA are generally lower intensity vs. higher intensity. Evidence Level A/B Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2009 Jul;41(7):1510-30. doi: 10.1249/MSS.0b013e3181a0c95c. American College of Sports Medicine position stand. Exercise and physical activity for older adults. Normal Human Aging Increased chronic disease risk: Age considered a primary risk factor for the development of many chronic, degenerative diseases. PA/exercise may dramatically alter the development of chronic disease. Evidence Level B Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2009 Jul;41(7):1510-30. doi: 10.1249/MSS.0b013e3181a0c95c.

²0–01– ²8 PA and the Aging Process Primary aging processes: No evidence to suggest that PA will increase longevity in humans. Secondary aging processes: Chronic disease, lifestyle behaviours, and genetic factors. Regular PA influences longevity through modification of the disease processes associated with aging (secondary aging).
