Just got back from the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) convention in Las Vegas. A really terrific convention–one of the best I’ve attended. The NSCA continues to be at the forefront of exercise and science, and the members are amongst the most knowledgeable in the field. I was particularly impressed with some of the nutritional info. Jose Antonio gave an excellent talk on supplementation and Jeff Stoudt and colleagues gave an indepth lecture on pre, during and post-exercise nutrition. Great stuff! Another highlight was Mike Stone speaking on periodization–cool hearing one of the “fathers” of the subject give his unique perspective. If you’re into the science of exercise and nutrition, make a point to go to next years show (it’s held at the Paris Hotel, which is one of the nicest in Vegas).
