Greg Grosicki, Ph.D., CEP, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Sciences and Kinesiology and Director of the Exercise Physiology Laboratory in Georgia Southern University.
Greg is extremely interested in how we can alter lifestyle to positively influence physical capacity as we age. He is also a high level endurance athlete, having completed Ironman Hawaii in 9 hours and 22 mins.
I first came across his work reading a research paper he was the lead author on that investigated the effects of aging on slow and fast twitch muscle fiber mass, strength, and power.
In this interview we dig into what he found, and how you can implement this information to age more athletically.
If you are interested in a high level of physical function into later years for both golf and life, this is one you will enjoy.
