      Stensvold, Dorthe; Viken, Hallgeir; Rognmo, Øivind; Skogvoll, Eirik; Steinshamn, Sigurd Loe; Vatten, Lars Johan; Coombes, Jeff S; Anderssen, Sigmund Alfred; Magnussen, Jon; Ingebrigtsen, Jan Erik; Singh, Maria A Fiatarone; Langhammer, Arnulf; Støylen, Asbjørn; Helbostad, Jorunn L.; Wisløff, Ulrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Introduction: Epidemiological studies suggest that exercise has a tremendous preventative effect on morbidity and premature death, but these findings need to be confirmed by randomised trials. Generation 100 is a randomised, ...
    • Absolute and relative accelerometer thresholds for determining the association between physical activity and metabolic syndrome in the older adults: The Generation-100 study 

      Zisko, Nina; Nauman, Javaid; Bucher Sandbakk, Silvana; Aspvik, Nils Petter; Salvesen, Øyvind; Carlsen, Trude; Viken, Hallgeir; Ingebrigtsen, Jan Erik; Wisløff, Ulrik; Stensvold, Dorthe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Background When assessing population adherence to physical activity (PA) recommendation using accelerometers, absolute intensity threshold definition is applied despite having limited validity in those with low cardiorespiratory ...
    • Are Older Adults Physically Active Enough - A Matter of Assessment Method? The Generation 100 Study 

      Aspvik, Nils Petter; Viken, Hallgeir; Zisko, Nina; Ingebrigtsen, Jan Erik; Wisløff, Ulrik; Stensvold, Dorthe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Introduction: Physical activity (PA) is beneficial for general health. As a result, adults around the world are recommended to undertake regular PA of either absolute or relative intensity. Traditionally, adherence to PA ...
    • Cardiorespiratory Reference Data in Older Adults: The Generation 100 Study. 

      Stensvold, Dorthe; Bucher Sandbakk, Silvana; Viken, Hallgeir; Zisko, Nina; Reitlo, Line Skarsem; Nauman, Javaid; Gaustad, Svein Erik; Hassel, Erlend; Moufack, Marcel; Brønstad, Eivind; Aspvik, Nils Petter; Malmo, Vegard; Steinshamn, Sigurd Loe; Støylen, Asbjørn; Anderssen, Sigmund Alfred; Helbostad, Jorunn L.; Rognmo, Øivind; Wisløff, Ulrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Purpose: Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is regarded a clinical vital sign, and accurate reference values for all age groups are essential. Little data exist on CRF and cardiorespiratory function in older adults. The aim ...
    • Correlates of objectively measured physical activity among norwegian older adults: The Generation 100 Study 

      Viken, Hallgeir; Aspvik, Nils Petter; Ingebrigtsen, Jan Erik; Zisko, Nina; Wisløff, Ulrik; Stensvold, Dorthe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The aim of this study was to identify how demographics, physical activity (PA) history, and environmental and biological correlates are associated with objectively measured PA among older adults. PA was assessed objectively ...
    • Do weather changes influence physical activity level among older adults? – The Generation 100 study 

      Aspvik, Nils Petter; Viken, Hallgeir; Ingebrigtsen, Jan Erik; Zisko, Nina; Mehus, Ingar; Wisløff, Ulrik; Stensvold, Dorthe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Introduction Understanding how individual and environmental factors impact physical activity (PA) level is important when building strategies to improve PA of older adults. No studies have examined how hour-to-hour weather ...
    • Exercise patterns in older adults instructed to follow moderate- or high-intensity exercise protocol - the generation 100 study 

      Reitlo, Line Skarsem; Bucher Sandbakk, Silvana; Viken, Hallgeir; Aspvik, Nils Petter; Ingebrigtsen, Jan Erik; Tan, Xiang chun; Wisløff, Ulrik; Stensvold, Dorthe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background Making older adults exercise and keeping them in exercise programs is a major challenge. Understanding how older adults prefer to exercise may help developing tailored exercise programs and increase sustained ...
    • Physical activity and exercise among older adults - The Generation 100 study 

      Viken, Hallgeir (Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2016:192, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
      SAMMENDRAG: De fleste land i verden vil fram mot år 2050 oppleve en demografisk endring, der andelen eldre personer vil øke sterkt. Denne demografiske endringen er forventet å øke helserelaterte kostnader, både fra et ...
    • Predictors of dropout in exercise trials in older adults: The generation 100 study
