We aimed to characterize the plasma redox homeostasis as underlying physiological mechanisms of specific training on healthy elderly. 51 healthy volunteers were trained to endurance, resistance, Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation for 12 weeks, 3 sessions/w, all applied to lower limbs. We assessed ex-post quadriceps' maximal voluntary contraction, handgrip strength, five-times-sit to stand and timed up-and-go tests, oxidative damage (lipid peroxidation, protein carbonyl groups), antioxidant enzyme activities (superoxide dismutase, Catalase, Glutathione peroxidase, Glutathione homeostasis), free thiols and total antioxidant status.

Abstract

We aimed to characterize the plasma redox homeostasis as underlying physiological mechanisms of specific training on healthy elderly. 51 healthy volunteers were trained to endurance, resistance, Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation for 12 weeks, 3 sessions/w, all applied to lower limbs. We assessed ex-post quadriceps' maximal voluntary contraction, handgrip strength, five-times-sit to stand and timed up-and-go tests, oxidative damage (lipid peroxidation, protein carbonyl groups), antioxidant enzyme activities (superoxide dismutase, Catalase, Glutathione peroxidase, Glutathione homeostasis), free thiols and total antioxidant status. We found significant difference in ex-post × protocol and in post-hoc analysis specifically for plasma superoxide dismutase activity in endurance training.
