As a practicing Strength & Conditioning coach I aim to bring the passion and experience I have to my undergraduate teaching. I hope to provide a solid evidence based approach to practice. I have particular interests in the development of youth athletes, the role of eccentric exercise in athletic development and injury risk and the role of monitoring of training on sport performance.
I mainly teach on both the BSc and MSc Strength and Conditioning courses and research methods modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. I supervise UGT and PGT dissertations and am currently supervising 3 PhD students.
Development of athletic performance and injury prevention with a focus on the role of eccentric exercise. Please see ResearchGate for my current publications: https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jonathan_Hughes4
