Although high-speed training has been used to improve power over the past two decades, the predominant exercise modality has been multi-set resistance training. Evolving research has revealed that, in conjunction with power, other goals can be targeted by modifying training modalities, patterns and environments. Goals include dynapenic obesity (dynapenic is loss in muscle function; obesity is increase in body fat percentage), executive function, functional independence and reductions in fall probability. This lecture will explore the nuances associated with high-speed training, and how the variables can be used to address the multi-dimensional requirements inherent to optimizing the aging process.

You will learn how:

• high-speed training can address more than neuromuscular power.
• aging is a multi-dimensional process that requires targeted training interventions.
• patterns of application, training environments and modalities can be used to address the factors complemented by power increases.

Who will benefit:

• Physical therapists, geriatricians and gerontologists
• Personal trainers
• Fitness instructors
• Fitness and wellness directors


Dr. Signorile is a Professor of Exercise Physiology at the University of Miami with a joint appointment at the University of Miami Medical School’s Center on Aging. He has been involved in research using exercise to address independence and fall prevention for over 20 years, and has produced over 65 refereed manuscripts and 500 national and international scientific presentations. Signorile is a pioneer in applying high-speed training to improving power in older persons and in applying the diagnosis/prescription model for tailored exercise to improve function and reduce falls in older persons. Dr. Signorile is the coauthor of SouthBeach Diet Supercharged and the author of the definitive book on exercise prescription for aging populations entitled Bending the Aging Curve, which was recently translated into Cantonese.
