  Purpose
The main objective of this study is to examine the effects of resistance type exercise training combined with nutritional support on body composition and muscle characteristics in healthy elderly men and women. For a comprehensive insight into the potential underlying mechanisms of the intervention effects on whole body-, muscle- and myocellular level, a broad range of tests will be performed before, during, and after the intervention period.

Condition Intervention
Muscle Loss in Elderly Dietary Supplement: Protein drink Dietary Supplement: placebo drink

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Effects of Resistance Type Exercise Training and Protein Supplementation on Skeletal Muscle Mass, Strength, and Muscle Characteristics in Healthy Elderly Men and Women
