Who is Jeremy Loenneke?

Dr. Jeremy Loenneke received his Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from the University of Oklahoma, where he was mentored by Dr. Michael Bemben. Dr. Loenneke previously received her Master’s degree in Nutrition and Exercise Science from Southeast Missouri State University, where she was mentored by Dr. Joe Pujol

Dr. Loenneke is a member of the American Physiological Society and the American College of Sports Medicine. He also serves on the editorial boards of many publications, including Sports Medicine, AGE, Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, and the Journal of Applied Physiology.  


Dr. Loenneke’s study focuses on the adaptations of skeletal muscles to exercise in the presence of blood flow limitations. His latest study has provided answers to numerous critical methodological and safety problems about the use of blood flow restriction

Loenneke is the director of the Laboratory of Applied Physiology Kevser Ermin and his research group focuses on skeletal muscle adaptations to exercise with and without blood flow restriction.

Notable quotes

  • “I believe the show Ancient Aliens was the catalyst for the end of thinking.”
  • “We hold these truths to be self-evident”
  • “Many roads lead to growth, but strength is something entirely different.”
  • “Just because someone questions whether or not something is true or points out the lack of evidence for something. Doesn’t mean that you have to change your training program. You can of course keep doing what you think is best or what you enjoy.”
  • “What about limb length? While that may impact your ability to lift. Limb length doesn’t change with training.” 
  • “There are baseline relationships between muscle size and strength .”
  • “Our results provide an experimental link between translational accuracy, life span, and aging-related phenotypes in mammals.”
  • “The “specificity” of strength change is interesting. It is observed not only in the limb that is trained. But the cross-education response also appears to follow the principle of specificity.” 
  • “Lifting weights will often improve size & strength..nobody disagrees with that.”
  • “Temperate temperance is best. Intemperate temperance injures the cause of temperance, while temperate temperance helps it in its fight against intemperate intemperance. Fanatics will never learn that, though it is written in letters of gold across the sky.”
