English Abstract

Background: After the human body reaches full maturity, physical functions and structure naturally begin to show signs of aging. The aging process results in physiological functional decline, reducing the health, quality of life and independent living skills of the elderly, and shortening life expectancy. Previous studies have postulated that lengthening exercise training (LET) may enhance the muscle strength, increase the metabolism, and maintain the balance of physiological functions in elderly individuals. Thus, LET may be an effective way to maintain human physiological functions and to slow the aging process. At present, however, it is still largely unknown whether LET would significantly slow aging or promote health in elderly individuals. Purpose: The present study was to review and focus on the effects and possible mechanisms of LET on the aging process in both healthy and unhealthy elderly individuals, providing some possible direction for future research. We hope this introduction will not only provide some new knowledge to readers regarding how LET could potentially prevent aging and produce a training adaptation for the elderly, but also provide some future direction for researchers who are interested in the topic of LET on anti-aging.
