Influence of a brisk walking program on isokinetic muscular capacities of knee in sedentary older women

Abstract : This study analyzed the evolution in peak torque (PT) and mean power (MP) isokinetic parameters in the quadriceps and hamstring muscles of elderly sedentary women who were randomly selected to participate in a brisk walking program for 6 months. The 121 sedentary women of this study presented a mean score of 5.3 (±1.7) on the Physical Activity Questionnaire for the Elderly and covered 86 % of the theoretical distance on the 6-min walk test. The isokinetic evaluation was performed on both sides at 60°/s and 180°/s. PT and MP were selected for analysis. Women in the trained group (n = 61) participated in a program of 78 sessions over 6 months with three sets of 60 min of exercise per week. For this group, heart rate, time and distance were, respectively, 125.2 bt/min (±10), 37.9 min (±4.2) and 3756.3 m (±445.4). The analysis of the group × time interaction demonstrated an increase in the PT of the dominant-side hamstrings (p < 0.001). In the trained group, we observed a significant increase in PT at 60°/s for the hamstrings on both sides (0.01 < p < 0.02) and a significant increase in MP for the hamstrings at 60°/s on the nondominant side (p < 0.05). The study indicates a minor, though significant, influence of a brisk walking program on the peak torque and mean power of the quadriceps and hamstring muscles in sedentary women over 60 years.
