FREE LIVE Educational Event – Dr. Scott Powers – Strength or Endurance?
Aspire Respiratory Products is pleased to host the second in a series of free speaker events offered to health-focused professionals in 2021. The series brings experts together to share and discuss important health and physical wellbeing topics. This second event “Is it Strength or Endurance I Need?” will be presented by world-renowned exercise physiologist Dr. Scott Powers.
Event Overview: This 30-minute presentation will provide information about strength and endurance protocols on muscles’ ability to perform relative to strength, agility, and speed. Training protocols and goals will be reviewed, and the definition of workout programs for strength training versus endurance training will be reviewed. Individual training goals relative to the type of performance will be elucidated for athletes and those involved in the physical fitness or physical therapy workspace.
About Dr. Powers: Dr. Scott Powers specializes in investigating the effects of muscular exercise and inactivity on both cardiac and skeletal muscle. Specifically, Power’s research has focused upon exercise-mediated changes in cardiac and skeletal muscle antioxidant systems and the role these changes play in providing protection against muscle injury. Power’s work has elucidated the mechanisms responsible for respiratory muscle weakness. Funded by over 30 years of extramural grant funding, Power’s is a distinguished professor. During his over 30-year career has written eleven editions to the best-selling book of Exercise Physiology: Theory and Application to Fitness and Performance.
The 45-minute event will include a 30-minute presentation by Dr. Powers and a 15-minute question and answer session moderated by Dr. Christine Sapienza, Ph.D., CCC-SLP.
