CHHS Exercise Science Students Collect Data to Examine Effect of Suspension Training

CHHS Exercise Science students collected data to examine the effect of suspension training on selected health-related fitness variables and functional movement.

The data was collected from 15 participants over a six-week period. The participants were all students in CHHS Professor Alex McDaniel’s EXS 292 Suspension Training class.

The research was conducted because there is relatively little research quantifying the effects of suspension training on health-related fitness and functional movement.

The students involved included Kelsey Bryan, Rachel Williams, Ryan Swiezy, Adrian Gonzalez, Andrew Ortiz, Brad Hollingsworth, Christa Douros, Raechel Santee, Phillip Morie, Laura Ackerman and Emma Schmid. The faculty mentors involved included Wayland Tseh, Alex McDaniel, Sarah Noland and Tamlyn Shields.

An abstract about the data was recently submitted to the 2018 Annual Convention of the American College of Sports Medicine.
