To optimize the athletic performance and muscle phenotypes from evidence-based knowledge
Our team studies the topics of “Strength & Conditioning” and “Genetics and athletic performance and sports injury”.
In field of Strength & Conditioning, our purpose of study is to provide the evidence based physical training for everyone. We focus on acute and chronic physical responses after resistance training.
We also join the Japanese Human Athlome Project (J-HAP), it is focus on the genetics of physical performance and its-related phenotypes (i.e., muscle mass, muscle fibre type, maximum oxygen consumption etc.) and sports injury.
