    Personal profile

    Vision Statement

    I am most interested in investigating the physiology of skeletal muscle and sports performance. My current research has focused on the effects of exercise and nutrition interventions on skeletal muscle form and function and in the searching of strategies to improve athletic performance with a special focus on strength and power activities. In other words, I have focusing my research into making skeletal muscles stronger, bigger, faster and more resistant to fatigue.

    Research Interests

    Skeletal muscle physiology; Nutritional supplementation; Ergogenic aids and sports performance; Resistance training; Muscle Strength.
