, exhaustion, physical activity, walk time, and grip strength. If ≥3 criteria were positive, the older person was deemed frail. For 1–2 positive criteria, the older adult is considered prefrail and considered not frail if no criteria are positive; e. Physical function was assessed using the Katz Index of

with aging, sedentary behaviors may exacerbate the loss of muscle mass and strength, independent of physical activity. 2 , 3 In this regard, sedentary time has been shown to be inversely related to physical function and muscular strength in older adults. 3 – 5 Notably, the few cross-sectional studies

For older cancer survivors, age-related sarcopenia may be exacerbated by cancer treatment and increase muscle loss ( Fielding et al., 2011 ; Suskin & Shapiro, 2018 ); adding obesity to this equation has been found to have important clinical implications for physical function, chemotherapy
