Edward Coyle directs the Human Performance Laboratory, and his research focuses on the metabolic and cardiovascular factors that limit exercise performance. Recently, he has investigated the cardio-metabolic effects of prolonged sitting and the amount of exercise needed to counteract the negative health consequences of daily sedentary behavior. Furthermore, he will be studying 50-70 y men and women to determine the extent to which 'power' training can reverse their loss of muscle mass and if nutritional supplementation can augment the improvements in muscle function.
Investigates metabolic and cardiovascular factors that limit exercise performance.
Investigating the types of physical activity and exercise that both keep people healthy and allow them to achieve their physical potential.
Women and men between the ages of 50-70 y will perform 10 weeks exercise training using a unique method aimed to increase muscle power and size, determined using MRI and DEXA, among other measures. A main purpose is to determine if daily consumption of pomegranate juice containing ellagitannin augments increases in muscle size and power.
Previous studies from the HPL have found that prolonged sitting throughout the day prevents a one-hour bout of exercise from improving lipid and carbohydrate metabolism measured the next morning. We have termed this exercise resistance. This project will determine is prolonged sitting over one week of exercise training attenuates the exercise training induced improvement in cardiovascular function and metabolism.
Prolonged sitting impairs the clearance of plasma triglycerides the next morning. This project will determine interruptions of the prolonged sitting with periodic interval exercise can improve the post-prandial lipemic response.
I am a doctoral student with a background in exercise physiology, with specific training in research areas that consist of exercise training/testing and metabolic responses to exercise. I am planning to work as a professor in a research university with my primary focus being to evaluate the effectiveness of time-efficient training models on cardiorespiratory fitness. I am planning to attend a post-doctoral position in a school with a clinical setting. During my postdoctoral program, I...
