Exercise physiology and its role in disease prevention and in rehabilitation.
Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences, GIH, Department of Sport and Health Sciences.
1987 (English)In: Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0003-9993, E-ISSN 1532-821X, Vol. 68, no 5 Pt 1, 305-9 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

It is an impressive fact that many musicians can perform perfectly at an advanced age. Arthur Rubenstein played very demanding compositions of Chopin at the age of 88 and Andre Segovia at the age of 91 is still giving concerts on the classical guitar. Apparently, through practice very demanding neuromuscular activities can be maintained at advanced ages. Yet hours of daily "training" are behind these achievements. This review discusses some of the general aspects of training and their effects on function and health. As an overall goal it is more important to add life to years rather than add years to life.
