Interests & Expertise

Ann Snyder’s research interests lie in the physiological responses to exercise and the adaptations which occur following physical training. This basic interest has evolved into three specific research interests. The longest standing of these areas of research is that of human performance and the assessment of exercise training techniques to enhance exercise and competition performance, and has been the mainstay of her academic career.

In the 20 years prior to her retirement from UWM in 2013, Snyder worked with numerous local and national athletes and teams in the study of exercise training. This research progressed from the determination of lactate threshold, to the incidence of overtraining and how to protect from it, to oxygen utilization during exercise, the influence of different exercises on oxygen utilization and the energy expended (and oxygen utilized) during anaerobic and aerobic exercises.
