Washington: Women over the age of 60 may need to exercise only once a week to significantly improve their strength and endurance, a new study has claimed.Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham monitored 63 women performing combined aerobic exercise training (AET) and resistance exercise training (RET) for 16 weeks.One group performed AET and RET one time per week, a second group two times per week and a third group three times per week.The study found significant increases in muscular strength, cardiovascular fitness and functional tasks in each group, but there were no significant differences in outcomes among groups."This study demonstrates that doing as little as one AET and one RET workout each week can provide a lot of benefit for older women`s overall quality of life and health," said Gordon Fisher, primary investigator of the study.
