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.
