Advancing age can trigger a maladaptive cycle highlighted by systemic deconditioning frequently manifested as restricted mobility and physical activity avoidance. Though multi-faceted, waning maximal oxygen uptake and skeletal muscle strength are probable sources contributing to the noted prevalence of insufficient physical activity among older adults. Since restricted mobility is intimately linked with fall risk, dependency, and mortality – it is of interest to evaluate factors related walking autonomy and functional independence. While habitual exercise training can attenuate many adverse age-related shifts, it is of considerable importance to identify other (complementary) non-pharmacologic approaches to combat the burdens of advancing age and prevalence of chronic disease.
