Kylie Harmon awarded scholarship, research grant!

UCF PhD student Kylie Harmon has much to celebrate. First, Kylie was awarded a $1,500 scholarship through the NSCA Foundation. Founded in 2007 with the aim of supporting the advancement of strength and conditioning practical applications, the NSCA Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing funding to NSCA members taking part in educational and research endeavors. In addition, Kylie was awarded $5,040 through the UCF LIFE group’s Richard Tucker Gerontology Applied Research Award program. Both of these awards will help Kylie focus on research throughout her doctoral studies at UCF.

Muscle fatigue study published in the Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology

Along with lab alumni Jacob Mota, Jennah Hernandez, and Jesse Ortegon, Jr., Dr. Stock published a new manuscript in the Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology. The manuscript's first author was University of Oklahoma Ph.D. student Joshua C. Carr. The study examined the influence of hip flexor fatigue on the activity of the rectus femoris activity as a knee extensor, with the main finding illustrating a compensatory mechanism to preserve muscle strength at a joint.
