The over-65 population is growing rapidly and many of us are training seriously and some are competing in sports.

Should old people train differently than young people? Have there been research studies on training for old people?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Could you make this question more specific? A good and thorough answer to your question would have to be extremely long, it might be better to narrow it down to a problem you are actually facing. (eg to the sports you are doing). Check the FAQ, too, especially this section. – Baarn Nov 8 '12 at 16:52
Please consider editing and updating your question to narrow down the scope. A broad and extremely general question, one that can be answered with an entire book, tend to not work well in the Stack Exchange Q&A model. Make it more specific and focus on a more narrow topic to get a better answer. In the meantime, I am going to close this question until it has been improved. Reopening it will be trivial. – Matt Chan Nov 8 '12 at 17:18
This is an interesting area, focus the question a bit more and it is likely to be reopen. – FredrikD Nov 8 '12 at 20:30
