Doing research on muscle fibers
This particular class was in the Summer of 2006. Eric Bean (on my left) and Michael Coffey Jr. were my guest speakers that day (on the topics of endurance and strength training, respectively).
This is my buddy Alex and I complimenting our power lifting program with real food.
I study myosin interaction with actin during muscle activation. This crosses over into questions of fatigue and metabolism.
This myofibril is about a millionth of a meter in diameter; over a thousand of these put together make up an individual muscle fiber cell. You can clearly see the bands of myosin and actin, the proteins that interact to contract muscle.
This is me loading a myofibril on the fluorescence microscope.
