About the Webinar
The aging process affects all of the systems of the body, reducing the capacity to live independently and safely and often health, well-being, and happiness. Scientists and clinicians have often discussed the pill that contains all the ingredients that address the declines in health and function seen with aging. One such pill jumps to the forefront of the discussion, and it’s called exercise. Unfortunately, we do not all age the same way, and each of us has a unique set of needs that dictate the best exercise intervention.
Bending the Aging Curve: A Periodized Prescription for Improved Aging takes a unique look at addressing the multifaceted needs of each individual using functional diagnoses in designing targeted exercise programs. It shows you how to structure a periodized training program that provides the most effective mix of work and recovery and explains Dr. Signorile’s concept of translational training as a tool for translating physical improvements into improvements in daily living.
