Fatigue resistance vs. fall resistance: high-intensity interval training and the dissociation of stamina and stability in older adults
INTRODUCTION: The population of older adults (≥65 years) in the U.S. is growing, and this population faces unique health risks compared to young and middle aged adults. One of the primary health risks for older adults is falling, which is the leading cause of preventable death and injury within this population. Traditional exercise interventions have been effective in reducing fall risk but require significant time commitment. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) requires less time commitment than traditional exercise training and may be a viable alternative to reduce fall risk among older ...
