Physiological changes related to aging and muscular problems can increase the risk of injuries in the elderly people. Hence, one of the major risks in the elderly people is falling down. The present study aims to compare the effects of two selected Functional and Theraband trainings on the dynamic balance and strength of lower limb in the elderly men. 45 old men with physically healthy in range of 60 to 75 years were randomly divided into three groups: the Functional trainings (n=15), Theraband trainings (n=15) and control groups (n=15). The dynamic balance with Berg test and the lower limb strength with 30 Second Chair Stand tests were measured. The Functional and Theraband groups take part in Theraband and Functional trainings for 6 weeks. All tests were repeated for all of the groups after six weeks of training in the same condition. Data were analysed by covariance analysis (ANCOVA). The level of significance was p≤0.05. The results of this study showed that the Functional and Theraband trainings lead to a significant improvement in the dynamic balance and strength of lower limb in the elderly men. Furthermore, Theraband trainings on the strength of lower limb and Functional trainings on the dynamic balance had more effect. Elderly men are recommended to use Functional trainings for improving the dynamic balance and the Theraband trainings for improving the strength of lower limb.
