Question

How can integrating resistance training and HIIT benefit individuals with sarcopenia?

Answer

Resistance training emerges as a cornerstone approach in addressing sarcopenia risk factors, offering a viable means of preserving muscle mass and optimizing physiological function. Additionally, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) shows significant benefits such as increased muscle mass, muscle quality, physical performance, muscle strength, muscle power, and improvements in mitochondrial function. By incorporating these exercise modalities, individuals can potentially mitigate or slow the progression of sarcopenia while enhancing overall muscle health and functional capabilities.
