White paper: Strength training for the older adult.

Author information

Post-professional DPT Program, SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY, USA.


The aim of this White Paper was to review the current recommendations for strength training of older adults, to promote physical therapist best practice and achieve optimal functional outcomes. A secondary intent was to encourage prospective researchers to use published guidelines to establish an adequate strength stimulus for patients in their research, rather than perpetuating "usual or traditional" care.
