Data are presented as means±standard error.

Superscript (a, b, c, d): different superscript shows post-hoc results using the bonferroni in the ANOVA (P<0.05).

NC, neck circumference; AHGS, absolute handgrip strength; RHGS, relative handgrip strength.

*It means the mean value shows significantly difference compared with 60-64 age group (P<0.01).
