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 compared the outcome with other individuals of the same age group as well as with young(er) females. This helps us to better understand why Ina is still capable of lifting heavy weights, whereas others from her age are not. We have collected and analysed all the data and studied her muscle tissue samples and hope to publish our findings soon.
BNN-VARA visited our lab to film some of the tests that we performed with Ina.
