TaiChi News and Research: Older subjects who regularly practise Tai Chi have better arterial compliance and greater muscle strength

-That's why Chinese elderly are so nimble.

Older subjects who regularly practise Tai Chi found to have better arterial Compliance and Greater Muscle Strength...
Science Daily (press release)
Exercise which can achieve both cardiovascular function and muscle strength "would be a preferred mode of training for older persons," say investigators.
Experienced practitioners of Tai Chi, the traditional Chinese mind-body exercise now enjoyed worldwide, have been shown in a study of older subjects to have improved expansion and contraction of arteries according to cardiac pulsation (arterial compliance) and improved knee muscle strength.

The findings, say the investigators, of better muscle strength without jeopardising arterial compliance suggest that Tai Chi may well be a suitable exercise for older people to improve both cardiovascular function and body strength. A number of studies, they explain, have shown that strength training to improve muscle function and offset the effects of aging have also been accompanied by a decline in arterial compliance. "Evidence that strength training could change arterial compliance in middle-aged and older subjects is still elusive," they note.
