      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 ...

    • 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 ...

      Objective To evaluate the effect of five years of supervised exercise training compared with recommendations for physical activity on mortality in older adults (70-77 years). Design Randomised controlled trial. Setting ...
    • New relative intensity ambulatory accelerometer thresholds for elderly men and women: The Generation 100 study 

      Zisko, Nina; Carlsen, Trude; Salvesen, Øyvind; Aspvik, Nils Petter; Ingebrigtsen, Jan Erik; Wisløff, Ulrik; Stensvold, Dorthe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Background Public health initiatives world-wide recommend increasing physical activity (PA) to improve health. However, the dose and the intensity of PA producing the most benefit are still debated. Accurate assessment ...
