The subjects of this study were selected from community relief users(over 65-year old) who were sound physically and mentally. Additionally, they had no special medical history and did not exercise regularly. All subjects had participated in combined exercise program(resistance, core stabilization exercise) 60 minutes/day, 5 times/week, and during 12 weeks. The results are as follows:
In the body composition, while the change of body weight and body fat mass were significant, muscle mass was not. In the functional physical fitness, flexibility, stability, quickness, and agility showed the significant change.
In summary, performing resistance exercise and core stabilization exercise on a regular basis has a positive effect on body composition and functional physical fitness in the elderly. Therefore, when we choose an appropriate exercise program for the elderly. It is more recommended to apply a combined exercise program rather than a single exercise program for improving body composition and functional physical fitness in the elderly.
