The ASEP President, Dr. Robert Robergs, is analyzing the most effective placement of members on different committees.  You should hear from him soon.

He has completed arrangements with the Albuquerque Marriott Hotel in Albuquerque, NM for the upcoming 3rd ASEP Annual Meeting.  Everyone is welcome to the meeting. 

Makes plans for attending the Meeting.  Dr. Astrand is the keynote speaker.

I just returned from the 3rd Annual IADEP Meeting.  It was an excellent visit, and very good presentations, including:

  • And, yes, there were other presentations too.
For more information on the meeting, please contact IADEP.

Also, be sure to look at Matt's work in developing the Idaho Association of Exercise PhysiologistsThe Idaho exercise physiologists are the second association to affiliate with ASEP.  Thank you Matt for a job well done. 

You may also want to read Matt's recent article posted on Idaho site.  He examines such concerns as:

  • Why can't the exercise physiologist advance as a profession in the State of Idaho?
  • Why ACSM, AACVPR, etc., are not Exercise Physiology Organizations!

When time permits, be sure to look up an article by Dr. Jose Antonio, an ASEP member who teaches at the University of Nebraska, Kearney, Nebraska.  The article is entitled, "Nonuniform response of skeletal muscle to heavy resistance training: Can bodybuilders induce regional muscle hypertrophy?"  You will find that it is excellent reading.  Look for it in the J. Strength Cond. Res. 14(1):102-113, 2000 issue.
