While the science of biomechanics and Range of Motion (ROM) is important, how do we apply this in the health and fitness sector?
In this latest Revive Stronger vodcast, the team talks to Mike Israetel and Nick Tumminello about the subject of ROM.
Israetel is the head science consultant for Renaissance Periodization, where he has authored and co-authored a number for books. He has a PhD in Sports Physiology from East Tennessee State University, and on the sporting side has experience as a competitive powerlifter, grappler and bodybuilder.
Nick Tumminello is the 2016 NSCA Personal Trainer of the Year, and the Editor-in-chief of the NSCA Personal Training Quarterly journal. He’s the author of three books: Building Muscle and Performance, Strength Training for Fat Loss, and Your Workout PERFECTED. He’s been a trainer for over 20 years, is the former strength coach for team Ground Control MMA and has trained professional athletes in field, court, combat and physique sports
