Sports Science Updates

I enjoy keeping up-to-date with the latest sports science research and other articles about training for sports performance.  Remember, although one study can make a dramatic headline, it often takes years of research, different kinds of studies, and practical application to show how different training methods influence performance.   Below are links to research that caught my attention.  I’ll be updating the list so be sure to check back!
