Jason Lytle is the graduate teaching assistant for the AESL lab. He is an Exercise physiology PhD student at Texas A&M. Prior to his acceptance into the doctoral program, Jason received his Bachelor’s degree magna cum laude in Kinesiology at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. It was here that Jason began his interest in exercise physiology and sport performance. This interest led him to Texas A&M exercise physiology Master’s program, which he completed in December 2016. Jason’s current research interests include supplemental interventions for athletic performance, as well as the effect of water treadmill use on various physiological responses to exercise.
His current research project is titled “Effects of an Acute Sports Performance Resistance Training Bout on Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry Results”. This project will be aimed at determining if athletic resistance training will alter the body composition results of a DXA scan.
