Anthropometric, functional and explosive strength characteristics of women over 50 physically active, from Bogota city, Colombia.

Aging as degenerative process induces significant changes in the elderly affecting the level of functional independence, quality and lifestyle. Methods: This study was conducted with 102 women physically active and without risk factors. Anthropometric tests, of functional independence and explosive strength were applied. Results: Average age 60.08 ± 5.35 years, body mass index: 26.81 ± 3.91, percentage of fat: 52.45 ± 4.75, percentage of muscle mass: 37.24 ± 6.77, tests of functional independence: maximum speed (30 meters): 9.39 ± 1.92 s, speed-agility (30 meters): 12.93 ± 1.59 s and dynamic balance (6 meters): 21.97 ± 8.01 s. Explosive Strength (Bosco test): Squat Jump: 12.23 ± 3.05 cm, Countermovement Jump: 13.18 ± 3.04 cm and Countermovement Jump Arm swing: 14.80 ± 4.01 cm. Conclusion: The statistical relationships found between body composition, explosive strength and functionality tests, are an important diagnostic tool and control that can improve the intervention models with elderly.http://www.scribd.com/doc/76245612/Anthropometric-functional-and-explosive-strength-characteristics-of-women-over-50-physically-active-from-Bogota-city-Colombia http://www.scribd.com/iMedPub
