Our labs are equipped to support student research in exercise physiology, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, and sport nutrition.

Here are recent examples of student research:

  • Hannah Anderson, The effects of different pre-exercise energy drinks on muscular strength and repetitions to failure during a squat exercise
  • Abigail Hammer, The training effect the 3km steeplechase has on cross country performance
  • Kinta Schott, Comparison of Ankle Taping Methods on Recreationally Active Adults with Chronic Ankle Instability
  • Elizabeth Sharis, Kinematics of the Feet-Out Rowing Drill on the Concept2 Model D Versus the Rowperfect 3S Rowing Ergometers
  • Anthony Peters, The Validation of Garmin Forerunner 630 Watches in Predicting Maximal Oxygen Uptake in Hyperthermic Training Conditions
  • Samantha Lang, The Effect of Different Modes of Exercise on Perceived Stress Levels in College Students
