Lifelong Exercising Yields Sensational Results

A Swedish study of seniors, some over the age of 90, who are active skiers shows they have twice the oxygen-uptake capacity of their sedentary counterparts.

According to Per Tesch, professor of sports science at Mid Sweden University: “The findings show that humans have a great potential to maintain a high level of physical work capacity and thereby better quality of life even at advanced ages."

ScienceDaily reports that:

“The results for the active seniors are comparable to values for men who are 40-50 years younger but do not exercise to improve their stamina. Analyses of muscle samples at the molecular and cell level reveal a profile similar to what is found in younger men.”
