231: Functional Power Training for Older Clients, by FAI

Time Block D - Thursday, 8:00-9:50am
Presented by: Cody Sipe, PhD
Session Format: Workshop

Muscle power is a critical component to maintaining our functional abilities as we age. Traditional resistance programs focus on slow and controlled movement that have little impact on muscle power, and traditional power lifting programs are too risky and dangerous for the average aging adult. Should and can older adults perform power training? Yes! This session will cover all the critical aspects of a safe and effective functional power program for older clients, including equipment, technique, moves and contraindications.
