Outcome measures: The outcomes were collected immediately following the training period and included: total and regional lean body mass (LBM), maximal voluntary isometric knee extensor strength at 90[degrees] flexion (KES), objective physical function measures (30-second arm curl, 30-second chair stand, and 50-foot walking) and patient-reported function (The Multidimensional Health Assessment Questionnaire).
