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 my years in international track and field competition, I've been coaching and teaching college courses in the sport, exercise science, and research. Currently, I am coaching track/strength and conditioning at the high school level and serving on the sport sciences faculty at USA Track and Field.
With more than 40 years of experience, my goal in creating Sports Training Adviser is to share effective training and coaching methods that accelerate learning and sport performance. 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.
