investigated in healthy older women 27 but not in a younger population. Using recently verified fine-wire EMG guidelines for GMin, 16 the purpose of this study was to quantify the muscle activity of GMin segments across 6 common lower-limb rehabilitation exercises in healthy young adults. This will provide

programs with exercise interventions may help with reducing the risk of stress-related declines in activity. 3 Identifying which life events place young adults at greater risk of PA reductions could allow for improved targeting of coping strategies and finding specific solutions to their new barriers

adults are prone to exert excessive force compared with young adults during object manipulations ( Diermayr et al., 2011 ; Ranganathan et al., 2001 ). Furthermore, older adults exhibit higher force fluctuations during constant force exertion ( Keogh, Morrison, & Barrett, 2006 ; Ranganathan et al., 2001

mass, and the ratio between 2 individual muscle volumes. The CSA and volume measurement were repeated twice for 7 young adults to test the reliability of the measurement. The coefficients of variation for muscle CSA and volume were 1.7% ± 1.0% and 0.4% ± 0.3%, respectively, and there was no significant

Guang ( 2001 ) indicated weaker handgrip force for older adults than for young adults. Thus, a number of studies for older adults have reported declines in hand dexterity and strength. However, there are few quantitative methods available for measuring age-related changes in finger motor function. Some

promoted as a simple and practical method for gauging intensity in the free-living setting. 8 , 9 We previously described the calibration of cadence–intensity thresholds (ie, cadence values associated with increasing levels of intensity in a sample of young adults [age 21–40 y] during treadmill walking

 al., 2013 ; Rogers & Mille, 2003 ). For example, McIlroy and Maki ( 1996 ) and Maki and McIlroy ( 2006 ) have demonstrated that medial–lateral sway is disproportionately increased in older adults (OAs) compared with young adults (YAs). In a prospective study, Hilliard et al. ( 2008 ) demonstrated that

, young adults assessed whether implicit attitudes toward exercise were associated with average, weekly LTPA, as well as the amount of time individuals reported exercising during a typical leisure-time workout session. Young adults were recruited to maximize variability in PA levels, as estimations of PA

older adults (OA) to continuously learn new fine motor skills and adapt skills to unknown situations. Although OA show lower fine motor control performance than young adults (YA; Diermayr, McIsaac, & Gordon, 2011 ), they are able to improve their fine motor skills considerably with practice ( Lazarus
