Welcome!

Passionate about muscle physiology and resistance training programming, my mission is to provide you, the professional vested in muscle performance, with useable, up-to-date, research supported muscle performance content and training programs.

As a muscle performance expert, specifically within the area of resistance training, my mission is to serve the exercise science community.

I have spent the past 20 years in gyms, athletic training centers, and classrooms, and loved every single minute of it! My career started in athletic training centers and that it where my interest in timing and muscle performance first started and later served as the original idea for the book Timing Resistance Training: Programming the Muscle Clock for Optimal Performance (Human Kinetics, 2020).

Right now, timing, specifically muscle clocks, is the most exciting topic in muscle performance. I am so excited to have the chance to share groundbreaking research on the discovery of muscle clocks and what they mean to muscle performance with you all!

As a muscle performance expert, specifically within the area of resistance training, my goal is to serve the exercise science community. To achieve that goal I develop continuing education webinars, courses and programs that are approved by the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA), American Council on Exercise (ACE), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCa), Board of Certification (BOC), and all State Boards of Physical Therapy.

Through the book, custom live events online continuing education courses, and articles, muscle physiology and resistance training methods are my passion and I want to share that with you. I would love to hear from you. Please contact me directly at amyashmorephd@gmail.com.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with Amy Ashmore as she conceptualized and launched two of her most recent courses. She has a keen understanding of the changing needs of fitness professionals and provides engaging and applicable material to address those needs. Amy is an excellent educator and content collaborator. Her professionalism and clear passion for what she does is evident in every conversation and communication. I look forward to working together on future projects.”
