Cambridge Science Festival Logo

Dan Gordon, ARU, discusses the principles of skeletal muscle physiology and how a series of mechanical and chemical events lead to the generation of force. The talk will consider muscle actions and how training produces both gains in size and speed of the muscle action. The session will address some of the perceived misconceptions about strength and power training through appreciation of the underlying muscle physiology.

Presented as part of Cambridge Science Festival.
