Study Summary

The investigators propose to compare the effects of a 12-week load resistance training program to a velocity resistance training program on ultrasound measures of quadriceps muscle quality in a healthy, older adult population. As secondary measures, The investigators propose to compare the effects of these exercise programs on maximal strength, power, and functional movements such as the chair sit-to-stand and gait speed. Further, The investigators will evaluate the impact of each protocol on cognitive function.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
