Research Review

Each week, I summarise and review 4 papers on a wide range of topics from Sports Medicine, Rehabilitation, S and C, Performance, Biomechanics and Physiology.

There is of course a degree of bias in this blog – but although I give my thoughts on the message of the paper and what it adds to the literature – I do keep the summary direct and where possible give a direct link to the paper.

Usually sent out on a Sunday – can be some weekend reading and I know many use it as CPD  each week. Let me know if there is a paper you would suggest I read – or join the debate on twitter regarding the papers.
