World champion powerlifting Ina Koolhaas-Revers (71 years old) visited our lab to assess her body composition, strength, functional performance, and metabolic health. We performed many measurements on Ina and will compare the outcome with other individuals of the same age group as well as with young(er) females. This will help us to better understand why Ina is still capable of lifting heavy weights, whereas others from her age are not. We are presently collecting and analysing all the data and working on her muscle tissue samples and will present these findings soon.
BNN-VARA visited our lab to film some of the tests that we performed with Ina.
