This dataset contains basic participant characteristics (age, height, weight, BMI, vastus lateralis msucle thickness), physical function characteristic (Short Physical Performance Battery scores, and velocity, force, and power variables of leg pressing performance), and habitual physical activity level provided as daily energy expenditure/basal metabolic rate and time spent in age determined physical activity thresholds, for healthy older versus younger adults. This dataset is to accompany the manuscript 'Habitual physical activity levels do not predict leg strength and power in healthy, active older adults' submitted for publication to the journal PLOS ONE.
