With the development of productive forces and the improvement of people's living standards, the pressure on the environment has increased, and the elderly's own health problems have increased. People's health consciousness is getting stronger and stronger, and their understanding is gradually deepening. Social aging has become a reality, and how to make the society properly face aging, let the elderly take an active part in physical exercise, and take an optimistic attitude. To maintain youthfulness and maintain vitality is what society must do now. Therefore, this article summarizes the cardiopulmonary function of elderly men from the age of 61 to 65 through literature and logical analysis.The standard for enhancement and maintenance is 30% to 60% (2.57 --- 4.19METs90 --- 118 times / min), improving the body's strength, softness, balance ability, neuromuscular coordination and cardiopulmonary Functional exercise intensity ranges from 46% to 60% (3.77--4.19METs 105-118 beats / min), cardiopulmonary function ranges from 30% to 45% (2.57-3.85 METs 90-105 times / minute) This stage is the effective degree of fitness exercise for the elderly from the age of sixty-one to sixty-five. From physical function, vascular function, respiratory function, blood lipid and body composition The most appropriate cardiopulmonary function at the age of fifteen is 30 to 60 percent. So scientifically Instructing older people's exercise intensity Especially important.
