The pensioners physically fit are almost identical to those of Muscle & # 39; 25 years, a study found.
Experts from the University of Ball State in & # 39; MUNCIE, Indiana, studied 28 people & # 39; over 70 who were exercising b & # 39; consistently from 70 years to determine how staying active can offset it- physical decline associated with aging.
The results, published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, also noted those who work regularly shave 30 years of age compared their biological body & # 39; peers.
Interestingly, the subjects were not athletes, but people who have adopted fitness in style & # 39; their lives during the bombing exercise 70s.
"We have been very interested in & # 39; people started exercising during the run and the explosions of the exercise of the seventies", said Scott TRAPPE, science professor of exercise and senior author of the study.
"They started exercising as a hobby".
Using social media, the researchers found that 28 people maintained this level & # 39; activity for five years.
They also recruited two other groups: inactive & # 39; adults aged 70 and & # 39; 20 years.
Scientists tested the aerobic capacity of the participants and measured the number of & # 39; capillary and enzymes in their muscles – high levels showing muscular strength.
Interestingly, the muscles & # 39; seniors exercises have agreed & # 39; those & # 39; those & # 39; 20 years.
Similarly, amassed more capillaries and enzymes in their muscles than the inactive pensioners – which means effectively fixgħu the physical impact of aging.
In fact, the only difference between the two active – young and older groups – was somewhat reduced aerobic potential.
But, suitable for pensioners, it was still 40 percent higher than their sedentary peers.
In addition, when the data was compared with the national average in & # 39; different age, active pensioners had cardiovascular health & # 39; 30 years younger.
The results suggest that the aging population can & # 39; "build" reserve & # 39; good health, the researchers said.
"These people were so vigorous", said Professor TRAPPE.
"I am in my 50s and jispirawni sure to stay & # 39; active."
