A quick thought on statistical power

Whether you’re an allied health professional, strength coach, or personal trainer, there’s no hiding from the greater demand for evidence-informed practices. In an age where your clients come to you having spent hours online already trying to tackle their problem, they’re likely to end up on your door step with more questions, and likely expectations, […]

On my mind #3

It’s been awhile since my last post, and let’s just say that balancing a full-time post-doc with completing a full-time physiotherapy degree hasn’t left much time for the site. It’s been a tough two months, and after sitting down and really thinking about what my priorities are right now, I’ve rebalanced my projects which should […]

Taking a break from science this weekend, here is what’s on my mind right now:

Essential Reading #1

I’ve worked with plenty of people over the years who have achieved impressive levels of strength and physique development without ever knowing what a myosin heavy chain is or the names of any of the muscles that attach to the scapula. You’d be surprised how far you can go with a barbell and lots of […]

On my mind #1

I’ve received some good feedback on the Strong Science series, but wanted to create some posts that aren’t necessarily tied to a theme or filled with science. My thought process is best described as anything but organized so I thought I’d throw together a random thoughts style of post as a good way to put […]

Why is 21 the magic number? Do a quick search for anything on habit forming and you’ll find that the ‘experts’ agree that it takes exactly three weeks to form a habit. If you can do something for 21 days in a row, it’s likely going to stick with you for life. The origin of […]

Not all actions are equal

I swore when I started this blog and using twitter and Facebook more regularly that I wouldn’t become one of those chronic motivational quote posters. The fitness industry certainly doesn’t need any more, and I’m starting to suspect that 90% of all fitness-related tweets are really just quotes from someone else followed by the hashtag […]

Publicize your learning process

Every fitness professional, exercise scientist and kinesiology student should have a blog. I know this seems contrary to opinions on the more popular fitness blogs, those telling everyone to filter their info and criticizing people for pushing articles online without at least a decade of experience. We’re putting limits and qualifiers on who can contribute, […]

Going to the dogs

Thanks to a collection of family dogs, only two of my years on this planet have been spent dog-free. Two too many as far as I’m concerned. Four years ago, after a heart-breaking farewell to Pascoe, the family dog (who stayed with my parents), my wife and I packed up and moved to Hamilton so […]
