Chad Kerksick

Assistant Professor
Lindenwood University

Ever since I started my educational path I have been enamored with the human body and in particular how exercise impacts and also how nutrition can further modify it. I enjoy teaching, speaking and researching on these areas and will continue to develop more research and scholarly work in these areas. What is particularly exciting is that we have so much more to learn and understand.

Biography

Chad Kerksick, PhD currently works as an Assistant Professor of Exercise Science in the Exercise Science Department and also serves as the Graduate Program Director in the School of Sport, Recreation and Exercise Sciences at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO.  In addition to this appointment, Dr. Kerksick serves on the Executive Council for the Nutrition, Metabolism and Body Composition Special Interest Group and as a member of the Scholarship Review Committee for the National Strength and Conditioning Association.  He received his PhD in Exercise, Nutrition and Preventive Health from Baylor University and is currently certified with distinction as a strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS*D) and certified personal trainer (NSCA-CPT*D) by the National Strength and Conditioning Association and as an athletic trainer (ATC) by the National Athletic Trainers' Association and recognized as a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and International Society of Sports Nutrition.  Dr. Kerksick's research continues to focus on studying the impact of exercise and nutrition on numerous aspects of health and performance and from this work he has published over 50 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, given over 100 research presentations, authored multiple chapters and edited a recent book on nutrient timing.

Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

    -Exercise and nutritional interventions to improve health, performance and recovery of all populations
    -Skeletal muscle physiology and how loading and varying loading patterns can influence intramuscular adaptations
    -Exercise patterns to favorably influence glucose and insulin control

Personal Interests

    Exercise, resistance training, water sports, travel
