Summary: In this older cohort, lower strength with older age was predominantly due to a lower muscle mass. Age and body fat also had significant inverse associations with strength and muscle quality. Both preservation of lean mass and prevention of gain in fat may be important in maintaining strength and muscle quality in old age. 

Key Takeaways

Older adults who have low strength tend to have low muscle mass and higher fat mass. To maintain strength with age, focus on preserving lean muscle tissue and avoid fat gain.
