It is with great sadness that we note the passing of Dr. Jack Wilmore, who in 1999 started the initiative that became the Huffines Institute in 2003.  There is more information regarding Dr. Wilmore elsewhere on this site (look under the About tab), but his generous personality as well as his leadership in the field of Exercise Physiology will be missed tremendously.

Have you ever tried to pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time? Not so easy is it?! Find out why when you read the weekly text article by Ms. Deanna Kennedy titled "Between Limb Interference: How Smart is Your Right Foot?" "It is well recognized that coordination is a fundamental aspect of skill related fitness. After all, many sports require some type of coordination between the limbs. Serving a tennis ball, for example, requires one limb to toss the ball while the other limb controls the timing and trajectory of the racket to facilitate contact with the ball. Swimming, on the other hand, requires a complicated pattern of coordination between the upper and lower limbs.

Can blood pressure medications do more than just lower blood pressure? Read the weekly text article by Mr. Jeffrey Hord titled "Blood Pressure Medication to Prevent Muscle Loss?" to find out. "Our bodies attempt to maintain a constant internal environment but achieving this consistency can be made much more difficult when we alter our external environment, such as going from walking upright to being bedridden for five days in the hospital. This change in the external environment alters the load on skeletal muscle fibers and will result in an altered internal environment."
