By Bob Murray, Sports Science Insights, LLC, Crystal Lake, IL and Christine Rosenbloom, PhD, RDN, Professor Emerita, Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA

The human body is amazingly adept at increasing its fitness capacity, even into the ninth decade and beyond. As the population ages, so will the need for sound nutrition and exercise advice for the “grey tsunami” that will change the face of our population. This session will review the physiological changes that occur with normal aging that impact exercise capacity, muscle strength, and nutrient needs.

Learning Objectives

1. Recognize the capacity of aging muscle to store glycogen and respond to the challenge of training and describe the current research on protein quality, quantity, and timing to support muscle protein synthesis with aging.

2. List concerns of maintaining adequate hydration in aging athletes.

3. Describe nutrient-rich meals and snacks to support optimal aging in active older athletes.
