Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the association between different types of physical activity behavior and incident mobility limitation in older men and women and to examine whether muscle parameters mediate these associations. DESIGN: Cohort study with 4.5-year follow-up. SETTING: Metropolitan areas surrounding Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Memphis, Tennessee. A random sample of white Medicare beneficiaries and all age-eligible blacks. PARTICIPANTS: Three thousand seventy-five black and white men and women aged 70 to 79 with no self-reported difficulty walking one-quarter of a mile or climbing 10 steps, enrolled in the Health, Aging and Body Composition (Health ABC) Study. MEASUREMENTS: Participants were classified as exercisers (reporting ≥1,000 kcal/wk of exercise activity), lifestyle active (reporting
