Holzapfel Presents at ACSM Conference
EKU exercise and sport science graduate student Simon Holzapfel recently presented an abstract entitled Relationship between a proxy of pre-natal testosterone and maximal oxygen uptake: A pilot study at the 60th annual American College of Sports Medicine conference this past May in Indianapolis. The study examined how the ratio of the second to fourth digits in the hand are an indicator of pre-natal testosterone in the body. Holzapfel tested male and female distance runners to learn what the relationship was between digit ratio and endurance performance.
Holzapfel's poster was also presented at the EKU Scholar Assembly in April where it won Best Poster for the College of Health Sciences. Holzapfel will begin his doctorate in nutrition and wellness at Arizona State University this August.
