Please join us for the upcoming Hallman Lecture:

Strength and Fatigue Adaptations with Aging: Modeling a Paradox and Implications for Musculoskeletal Injury

Laura Frey Law.

Thursday, October 25, 2018 - 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. (reception to follow)

With age, strength declines and fatigue is typically reported to increase beginning after the fifth decade of life. Yet isolated muscle fatigue properties have been shown to improve with age, with a preferential loss of type II fibers. These seemingly opposing findings are considered, as Professor Frey Law uses age-adapted Rohmert curves to examine how improved muscle fatigue properties may coexist with higher ratings of perceived fatigue, in conjunction with reduced strength. Implications for training, musculoskeletal injury and functional performance will be discussed.

This Hallman Lecture is presented by the Centre of Research for the Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders, and the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences.
