Research on Physical Activity in the Elderly: Practical Implications for Program Planning.
Myers, Anita M.; Gonda, Gail
Canadian Journal on Aging, v5 n3 p175-87 Aut 1986
The authors critically examine the research on physical activity in the elderly to assess the elderly's capacity for exercise and the benefits accruing from exercise. Lower-intensity exercise programs attract a more representative group of senior participants and overcome many barriers. Implications for program planning and efforts are discussed. (Author/CH)
