Abstract

CV performance declines over time in healthy elderly subjects due to aging, as well as declining physical activity. Recent studies with older, often sedentary individuals, demonstrate that aerobic endurance exercise may improve several measures of CV function. Although further research is needed to characterize the CV effects of exercise, particularly in elderly women and the oldest old population, aerobic endurance exercise should be advocated in the healthy elderly.
