Here is a list of references related to the age effect on shoulder strength:

for isometric muscle force measurements obtained with hand-held
dynamometers, Phys Ther, 76, 248-59.
2) Hughes, R.E., Johnson, M.E., O'Driscoll, S.W., and An K-N (1999) Normative
values of agonist-antagonist shoulder strength ratios of adults aged 20 to
78 years. Arch Phys Med Rehabil 80: 1324-1326.
