Dr. Costa’s primary research interests involve the non-invasive assessment of neuromuscular function and the physiological effects of exercise on health, fitness, and performance. Areas of research he has been involved with include resistance training, sports nutrition, body composition, injury risk, flexibility, and balance.
Investigating the effects of a nutritional supplement on recovery from exercise-induced muscle damage. In addition, examining the effects of short-term resistance training on strength, muscle mass, body composition, muscle activation, and contra-lateral performance. Recently, his graduate students have compared differences in muscle activation among different exercises and well as investigated the effects of foam rolling.
