Jenna has been training with Gym Jones since 2012. She is currently finishing her M.S. in Exercise Physiology and will begin work on her Ph.D. in Nutrition and Integrative Physiology starting in the fall of 2016. Her research interests include neuromuscular function, fatigue, power modeling, and biomechanics. She has several active projects including the modeling of fatigue during maximal effort exercise, investigating bilateral deficit during non-homologous muscle contractions, and identifying the kinematic and kinetic differences during the back squat caused by traditional weightlifting shoes. Her graduate work has allowed her to serve as a Biomechanics Research Assistant at The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital where she worked on projects to identify return to play criteria for athletes following an ACL injury. Currently she teaches an undergraduate course in Biomechanics at the University of Utah. Her goal is to provide a science based approach to training and nutrition in the gym.
