As a young athlete I learned how how popular training techniques, often based on myths or partial truths, can waste valuable training time. I also realized that coaches are not well versed in teaching methods that can speed up progress.
While training with elite Olympic weightlifters and adapting Eastern European training techniques my track and field results improved dramatically. Since winning numerous National Championships and representing the US many times in international competition, I've been coaching and teaching college courses in the sport, exercise science, and research.
After years of studying the scientific principles behind the most effective training methods, I have developed sound instructional and training techniques that accelerate learning and performance. Now, with more than 40 years of experience, I created Sports Training Adviser to share powerful training methods that work in the real world of sports.
In November 2012, I presented motor learning techniques to boost explosiveness at USA Track and Field's National Podium Education Project. These techniques are also featured in my e-book and DVD.
I am now collaborating with Dr. Christine Brooks, creator of innovative online courses that make learning the sport sciences and their applications easy.
Whether you are a coach, fitness professional, or parent, these are the highly effective, research-based methods will speed up results to help athletes run faster, jump higher, and throw harder and farther.
