Results of the study showed improvement in muscle strength and functional ability tests. Muscle strength was measured isometrically and improved significantly, even though participants were not trained in this manner. Strength increases were noted in the hip extensors, hip flexors, knee extensors, and dorsiflexors. The functional tests, including the lateral step-up test, minimum chair height test, time to walk 10 m, and stride length all improved significantly by post-test. The improvements were also maintained 8 weeks after training ended.
