Thoughts on Repetition Speed and Force Velocity Curve

My thoughts on repetition speed, and force-velocity curve from muscle physiology.

Almost all of the mathematical calculations by engineers concerning repetition speed during resistance training makes several assumptions, looking at the below hand drawn image of a repetition schematic:

The Effects of Physical Exercise and Cognitive Training on Memory and Neurotrophic Factors

The next lecture I will be giving will probably be in September of 2020. I know that seems a bit far away. The lecture will be titled, “Exercise, Diet, and Cognitive Function Over the Life Span.” There is an enormous about of data that has been published on these topics, including older and newer research. I will be trickling out a few of the more relevant studies over the next several months. So, watch this space.

Resistance Exercise Reverses Aging in Human Skeletal Muscle

The following study is one of my favorites to discuss. The name says it all and is extremely powerful. Usually, scientists are very measured in their wording. You may see a study with a name such as this:

Eur J Sport Sci. 2016 Nov;16(8):1055-63. doi: 10.1080/17461391.2016.1185164. Epub 2016 May 27.

Interview from the Land Down Under

I participated in an interview with Christian Marchegiani from Sydney, Australia. First of all, I would like to thank all of the people from Australia and abroad that like our page. This truly humbles me. Australia is a country I have always wanted to visit. Thanks again and thank you, Christian for giving me the opportunity to participate in the interview.
