Dr. Edourdo De Souza gave an Honors symposium about the possibility of burning fat and building muscle simultaneously. He suggested that achieving such goals are influenced by everything from nutritional intake, to sleep, to hormones. Dr. De Souza is an Asst. Professor in Health Sciences and Human Performance whose research has covered neuromuscular adaptations induced by resistance training. More specifically, his work examines the effects of different progression modes on neuromuscular, performance and body composition adaptations. This symposium will be made available under “recorded symposia” 1 to 1.5 weeks after the event.
