The effect of functional exercise training on physical function assessed using the Functional Movement Screen in middle-aged postmenopausal women
|dc.contributor.author||Peterson, Lauren Quinn|
|dc.description.abstract||Several assessments of physical function have been developed for use in older adult populations; however, these tools lack sensitivity and normative values to measure physical function in the middle-aged cohort. The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) may provide a solution to address this need. Postmenopausal women (N=18; 55.7 ± 2.8 years) were randomized based on age and body mass index (BMI) to a 10 week functional exercise training intervention group (N=11, 55.? ± 2.4 years) or non-exercise control group (N=7, 56.9 ± 3.1 years) and were assessed for body composition, physical function via FMS, muscle strength, leg power, and muscle quality (MQ). No significant differences in changes in muscle capacity, MQ, FMS composite scores, or physical function assessments between groups were detected. Moderate correlations were observed between change in FMS composite score and change in muscle power, MQ strength, MQ power, Transfer Task, and 30-second chair stand.|
