Dr. Pedro J Benito Peinado

Dr. Pedro J Benito Peinado
He is the director of the International Symposium of Strenght Training since its inception, and although the idea of continuing education was already around his head, the final proposal of this symposium and its holding in December, as usually happens was a matter of chance. It was a proposal by Professor Francisco Javier Calderón to use part of the money from conferences and thus take advantage of it. Dr. Pedro J Benito has been Professor of Exercise Physiology and Muscle building and training methods for almost two decades in our beloved INEF.
He has a degree and a PhD in Physical Activity and Sport Sciences from the Polytechnic University of Madrid and is a university specialist in quantitative statistics, which gives him a very mathematical profile that characterizes him.
He has researched different aspects of metabolism, but his greatest contributions come from strength training applied to special populations. He is now recently working on mathematical prediction models for changes in body composition.
He has a citation index of more than 875 citations, with an index H=17 and i10=23 points in academic google and 23 points in index H of the Web of Sciencies with more than 1724 citations. In the Researchgate website, maintaining a score of 32.8 points, with more than 125 publications, 628 registered citations and being in the 90th percentile of the scientists registered in this website. The H index in Researchgate is 13 points.
He is the director of the Master in Personal Training and  head of LFE Research group of the UPM.
