Course Description - Exercise and Dietary Protein as Key Strategies for Body Composition Management and Successful Aging:
This session will explore the important question: is it the load to be moved (body weight) or the ability to move the load (muscle quality) which mainly influences lower extremity physical function?
It will also introduce a paradigm that integrates exercise and nutrition to reduce risks for physical disability in our aging society.
Finally, “take homes” will be provided for the practitioner’s toolkit to enhance the translation of the research into practice.
