AST Sports Science is privileged to bring you the incredible insights from Dr. Paul Henning. Dr. Henning is a research physiologist and Army Officer in the Military Performance Division at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine in Natick, MA where he conducts research to enhance/sustain warfighter performance and prevent musculoskeletal injuries. His educational background includes a BS degree in Physical Education from East Stroudsburg University, PA, and a master’s and a doctorate degree in Exercise Physiology from The Florida State University.
His research at Florida State University focused on the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating myofiber size in response to aging, catabolic stress and nutritional interventions. He has presented at regional and national conferences and has published in many scientific journals. He is also a writer and speaker for the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and is very influential in their Tactical Strength and Conditioning special interest group which focuses on performance enhancement for the tactical athlete (i.e. military, police, and firefighters). His current research focuses on nutritional interventions to attenuate loss of lean mass and performance during catabolic stress in warfighters.
