Detection and Treatment of Sarcopenia and Myosteatosis in Older African Americans

The objectives of this study are to: 1) validate a rapid, portable, cost-effective method for screening myosteatosis and sarcopenia using diagnostic ultrasound, and 2) investigate a novel approach to progressive resistance exercise involving eccentric muscle actions that will counter the local effects of myosteatosis and sarcopenia in African Americans.

Behavioral - Eccentric Exercise

Submaximal progressive resistance exercise (PRE) using eccentric muscle actions for the knee extensors/flexors will be performed for 10 repetitions, 3 to 4 sets, twice per week for 12 weeks.

Behavioral - Concentric Exercise

Submaximal progressive resistance exercise (PRE) using concentric muscle actions for the knee extensors/flexors will be performed for 10 repetitions, 3 to 4 sets, twice per week for 12 weeks.
