Women wanted for study

Central Leader - - News -

If you’re ready to get off the couch and hit the gym, Cushla Storey may have the pro­gramme for you.

The Unitec mas­ters stu­dent is looking for women aged 18 to 50 who don’t do any ex­er­cise to take part in an eight-week pro­gramme to test how strength train­ing af­fects mus­cle sen­si­tiv­ity.

Par­tic­i­pants will have ac­cess to gym fa­cil­i­ties dur­ing their three train­ing ses­sions each week and will have their mus­cle sen­si­tiv­ity tested be­fore and af­ter the re­search pe­riod.

Ex­er­cises in­cluded in the pro­gramme in­clude weight train­ing, lunges and squats.

Find­ings from the study could also help pa­tients who suf­fer chronic pain if the re­search in­di­cates there is less pain af­ter ex­er­cise.

For more in­for­ma­tion call Cushla on 021-042-9619 or email uniters@ hot­mail.com.
