Is Cross-Education a Viable Rehabilitation Approach After Unilateral Athletic Injuries?
by Jonathan Farthing, PhD

A growing body of evidence suggests that unilateral strength training of the non-injured or non-immobilized limb during periods of disuse can offset losses in muscle strength and in some cases, even prevent atrophy. However, there is as yet only a small number of well-controlled clinical studies that have applied this "cross-education" approach after unilateral orthopedic injuries. This talk will outline the most recent literature on candidate mechanisms of these interesting inter-limb effects, and outline the limited evidence from the clinical studies completed to date, with some focus on major orthopedic injuries such arm fractures and post ACLR. The information will help coaches and therapists to understand how to implement effective cross-education strategies.

Why Less Is More When It Comes to Your Nutrition and Training Approach
by Neil Tkatchuk, CSCS

This session will provide insight into the challenges that many "dual-role" competitors face. When body building and fitness figure competitors also participate in power lifting meets, the nutrition strategy challenges are unique and not insignificant. Optimal body composition and optimal performance need to be balanced with precision and when attempting to control variables - sometimes less is more.
