Biography

As strength and conditioning coach and academic I have research interests in athletic preparation and performance, I deliver a range of strength and conditioning modules across each year of the undergraduate programme. I have particular interests in 1) weightlifting movements for non-weightlifting athletes, and 2) training intensity, volume and frequency and endurance performance.
