Current research interests include:
Currently, he is investigating the effects of high-intensity training on cardiovascular function in recreationally-active men and women, with the goal of examining efficacy of this regimen to alter blood pressure, heart rate, and muscular function as well as comparing responses between genders. Men and women are completing 6 days of high-intensity training over a 2-3 week period. Measures of cardiovascular function, energy expenditure, muscular function, and body composition are obtained pre- and post-training. See below for an opportunity to contribute to this exciting line of research!
Active, young men and women are needed to take part in a study examining the effect of high-intensity training on adaptations to exercise. To take part in this study, you must:
You will need to visit the Human Performance Lab on 12 occasions over a 4-week period. Total time commitment is approximately 10-12 hours. You can receive KINE 499C Independent Study credit (3 units) for your time!
