Dr David Aguayo
Muscle Physiologist, Head of Research and Development, Kieser Training
Dr David Aguayo joins the conference program as a special guest from Kieser Training AG, where he currently holds the position of Head of Research and Development. In the context of his university research work, he has dealt with the mechanisms of muscle build-up and muscle breakdown.
In particular, he focused on postmitotic muscle fibre cell nuclei and their interaction with satellite cells, which are of crucial importance for the regeneration and growth of the adult skeletal muscle. In response to various training stimuli (resistance training, endurance training, vibration, blood flow restriction, ...), the focus was on the proliferation and differentiation of muscular stem cells and signalling pathways for the development of training programs. Additionally, the manifold role of muscles and their effects on health and performance were highlighted.
David is currently working on the interaction between stimulus and adaptation and their functional manifestations through resistance training.
