Special Issue Information
Sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass and power that occurs during aging. Muscle mass gradually decreases by 3%–8% every decade starting at age 30, accelerating from 60 years old. This produces a progressive decrease in strength that contributes greatly to the disability and loss of independence of the elderly. Therefore, in order to treat and delay sarcopenia, the decisions that are made regarding life habits must be taken into account. In addition, with the physiological and systemic changes that occur in the body as age advances and accelerate the progression of this syndrome, lifestyle factors are much more controllable, and the inclusion of exercise (both resistance as strength) in a healthy lifestyle is of paramount importance. Therefore, the increase of public awareness of the importance of lifestyle habits (including an effective training plan to combat the effects of this disease) related to the state of the skeletal muscles in old age is of great importance in the treatment of sarcopenia.
This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) focuses on the current state of knowledge on the links between sarcopenia, exercise, and quality of life. New research papers, reviews, case reports, and conference papers are welcome to this issue. Papers dealing with new approaches to treatment and prevention of sarcopenia are also welcome. Other manuscript types accepted include methodological papers, position papers, brief reports, and commentaries.
