Experimental research on the influence of aerobic exercise combining resistance exercise on the physical health of middle-aged and elderly people

Object: To discuss the application value of aerobic exercise combining resistance exercise on the physical health of elderly people.

Method: 100 cases of middle-aged and elderly people in the community were selected and divided into different groups for research through experiment and mathematical statistics.

Result: After ten weeks of exercise, indicators of the observation group, including weight, body fat content (FAT), skeletal muscle mass (SMM) and percent body fat (PBF) were statistically and significantly different from those of the control group, with P<0.05; indicators of the observation group, including Body Mass Index (BMI), visceral fat area (VFA), and basal metabolic rate (BMR) were statistically and significantly different from those of the control group, with P<0.05; indicators of the observation group, including right upper limb SL, left upper limb, and TR were statistically and significantly different from those of the control group, with P<0.05.

Conclusion: Aerobic exercise combined with resistance to exercise is superior to simple aerobic exercise in increasing skeletal muscle content, reducing body fat content and promoting bone health. It is recommended that the middle-aged and elderly increase the appropriate strength exercises while aerobic exercise.
