Exercise and Aging

What would be the best exercise routine for anti-aging? There is no answer to this question but here are some of the new research results on the effects of exercise:

Cardiovascular and skeletal muscle health with lifelong exercise

Endurance but not resistance training has anti-aging effects

Telomerase activity and telomere length show a greater increase after endurance training versus resistance training

Jogging for 30 minutes per day could slow cellular aging by 9 years

Aerobic and Resistance Exercise Increases Muscle Tissue NAMPT in Older Individuals and eNAMPT as an Approach to Slowing Aging via Increased NAD+ Levels

Ability to lift weights quickly can mean a longer life

Exercise performance a better predictor of mortality than chronological age


Irisin links exercise and bone strength

Interaction of Exercise and Aging

Aerobic exercise lengthens telomeres and reduces stress in family caregivers: A randomized controlled trial

Exercise may increase lifespan 'regardless of past activity levels'

No such thing as too much exercise

High fitness levels were associated with the longest lifespans From the study: "High fitness levels were associated with the longest lifespans, in a continuous and linear fashion, i.e., the more a person exercised, the longer their lifespan was. (Note that this conflicts with previous research suggesting that too much exercise may be harmful.)"
