I’m a science nerd. It was my best subject through school and this thirst for science and love for sport is what took me down the road of physical preparation as a career. Alongside coaching, I like to write. I synthesize the latest research for coaches in the trenches on my websites Sweet Science of Fighting and Lift Big Eat Big, as well as contribute research updates to Science for Sport. Being exposed to the latest research each month I get to see where the trends are heading and what might be emerging in the future. As 2021 comes to a close, below are a few of my thoughts on current trends in sports science research.
