Effects of physical activities on obesity in the elderly: Systematic review survey
Univeristy of Niš, Faculty of Sport and Physical Education, Serbia
The aim of this systematic review was to determine, based on the summary of relevant literature, whether physical activity affects the obesity of the elderly. The sample of respondents were males and females, a total of 1110, older than 65 years. The criteria for the analysis of the papers were as follows: the papers included from 2005 to 2020, that the study was of a longitudinal character and that the respondents were older than 65 years. Based on the set criteria, 20 studies were included in the final analysis, which were analyzed and presented. The analysis of the obtained results can conclude that physical activities have positive effects on obesity in the elderly, but the scope and intensity of the experimental program should be taken into account, while the results of this research can be used by future research to find adequate literature to determine the effects of physical activity on obesity a person.
