Research Review

It's back!! Given the COVID19 global pandemic, rather than read about impending depressing doom, or arguments about what we should or should not have done, I have restructured the review and it's back as it was. Each week  I will summarise and review 4 papers a week, on a wide range of topics from Sports Medicine, Rehabilitation, S and C, Performance, Biomechanics and Physiology.

There remains, of course a degree of bias in this blog – but 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.

In the past you had to sign up to read the review, you can still do so via the review page, or just look out for it on social media.

Looking forward to the debate recommencing and look out for the podcast - its on the way back too.
