Review methods
1. Review question(s):
The purpose of this systemic review and network meta-analysis was to analyze
the effects of resistance training, endurance training, and whole-body vibration
on changes in muscle mass, muscle strength, and physical performance through
the evaluation of lean body mass, leg extension strength, and chair-stand tests in
elderly people
2. Searches:
We searched the databases in MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of
Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), the Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) using
the keywords including sarcopenia, physical activity, muscle atrophy, resistance
training, endurance training, whole body vibration, lean body mass, body
composition, body fat distribution , and muscle strength or physical performance
or other related terms. We limited the search to English language studies. We
conducted a literature search to identify relevant studies published from 1989
