|Professional Biography |
|Dr Keogh’s is an exercise and sport scientist whose teaching and research spans the areas of biomechanics, motor control and learning as well as strength and conditioning. His research focuses on understanding the acute stresses, and the chronic adaptations resulting from a range of physical activities, particularly resistance training. This research has focused on a range of strength and power sports including rugby union, powerlifting and strongman and more recently Australian rules football. |
The older adult research has focused on understanding the prevalence and consequences of sarcopenia (the age-related decline in muscle mass, strength and physical performance) in older adults living in, or risk of entering into residential aged care. A primary focus of this work is on better understanding the determinants of gait (walking) speed and in developing exercise interventions to improve gait speed and therefore functional independence and quality of life. A part of this older adult Research focus is also on better understanding the barriers, facilitators and motives older adults may have to physical activity.
His consultancy has involved New Zealand Academy of Sport, Paralympics New Zealand as well as a number of older adult active ageing groups. He is also on the Editorial Board of several peer-reviewed journals including the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, PeerJ and the Journal of Cancer survivorship.
