This week we have Dr. Lindsey Lepley. We talk about how to take care of your joints and staying healthy. She’s doing a lot of research around ACL tears. We talk a lot about eccentric training and blood restriction training.
Here is her biography:
Dr. Lepley’s research interests center around examining the negative neuromuscular effects of traumatic joint injury and identifying therapeutic approaches capable of combating neuromuscular dysfunction. Much of her previous and current research has evaluated the effects of eccentric exercise on the recovery of muscle function after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Additionally, she studied the impact of muscle inhibition on persistent muscle weakness, and the consequences of muscle weakness on knee joint biomechanics. Her current projects look to study the effects of ACL injury on neuromuscular function in a rodent model, and the ability of exercise to promote muscle and joint health for the purpose of translating this work back into the clinic to minimize the risk of traumatic osteoarthritis development.

We have one on one coaching available or just the programming depending on how serious you want to get.
