When astronauts are in outer space, their bodies exhibit signs of accelerated aging that revert to normal upon return to Earth’s gravity. This phenomenon demonstrates the importance of resisted movement to managing the effects of aging on the body. In fact, intelligently applied forces and variable movement stress prevent bone loss, improve hormone profiles, and promote collagen development. In this workshop, we'll use methodologies to develop programs that address tissue resiliency, anabolic response and other anti-aging factors.
