Research interests

Dr Warmington's research interests are focused on interelated areas that attempt to better understand the physiological, logisitical and functional benefits of exercise related to health. These include:

  1. The use of blood flow restriction exercise to improve muscle mass, strength and functional outcomes in populations unsuited to high-intesity strength training.
  2. The measurement and monitoring of recovery from exercise to better prescribe training and recovery to improve athlete health and minimise over-reaching/over-training.
  3. Improving tolerance to exercise in clinical populations and the elderly.

Current Research Supervision at Deakin University:

  • 1 x HDR completion
  • 3 x current HDR's
  • 1-3 current Honours students per year

Teaching interests

Dr Warmington is an active teacher in the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science course (H343) and related degrees/disciplines. His teaching interests are associated with areas related to physiology, exercise physiology, and the physiology of sport performance. In addition he is an active educator of research students with major contributions to Honours research projects and higher doctoral research student projects.
