Bending the Aging Curve: A Periodized Prescription for Improved Aging


Joseph F. Signorile, PhD ©2011
You must log in to watch this webinar recording.

The aging process affects all of the systems of the body reducing our capacities to live independently and safely, and often our health, well-being and joie de vivre. Scientists and clinicians have often discussed the multi-pill that contains all the ingredients that address the declines in health and function seen with aging. More and more 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 his or her unique set of needs that dictate the best exercise intervention. This webinar, based on Dr. Signorile’s book Bending the Aging Curve, provides a unique look at how to address the multi-faceted needs of each individual using functional diagnoses to design targeted exercise programs. The webinar also 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 an effective tool to translate physical improvements into improvements in daily living.
