Strength & Conditioning Workshop for Swimmers

The Swimming Section Committee is pleased to organised this workshop for all Swimming Section members. For anyone who swims, whether for leisure or competitively, learning how your body works and what you can do to make it stronger and more effective is always helpful.

Our speaker, Dr. Victor S Selvanayagam completed his first degree in Sports Science and Master’s degree in Medical Science (Exercise Physiology) at the University of Malaya (UM). He received his PhD from The University of Queensland in the area of Neuroscience where he focused on identifying early neural responses to strength training.

His main research focuses on the contribution of the nervous system to strength gains by incorporating well-explored motor learning paradigms to strength training. Victor, who is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning specialist (CSCS), is currently a Senior Lecturer with the Sports Centre, University of Malaya and teaches courses such as Exercise Physiology and Exercise Testing and Prescription in the Health Sciences.

He is a member of the Society of Neuroscience and President of the Malaysian Strength and Conditioning Association (MSCA).  Together with MSCA and Sports Centre, Victor has been advocating the importance of Physical Conditioning for everyone.
