Selecting Appropriate Training Load

Coaches play a complex role in the development of young athletes, writing training programs, teaching movement skills, helping reinforce the team culture, and monitoring progress. One of the more overlooked and undervalued areas of coaching is the role that the coach can play in the development of durable ancillary skills, attitudes, and behaviors that the athlete carries with them through their sporting career. One of the most important of these is the ability to select an appropriate load and load progression for a strength session.  At some point, almost every S&C coach has looked at an athlete’s training log and seen that the same [...]

Memorial University of Newfoundland Survey for S&C Coaches in Canada

My name is Jordan Foley and I am a master’s candidate in the Masters of Physical Education program at Memorial University of Newfoundland. I am conducting research on the characteristics of Canadian strength and conditioning coaches. Strength and conditioning coaches in Canada are invited to participate in this study. Participants will be asked to answer questions about their demographic information.  The results of this research will allow us to accurately identify the characteristics of strength and conditioning coaches in Canada and provide comparisons to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) strength and conditioning coaches.   The survey should take approximately 15 [...]

A Survey in Support of Research

Dear Coaches, We are contacting you regarding a study being conducted by Brock University looking at opinions of power cleans versus trap bar jumps and percentage-based training versus velocity-based training in practice. We are interested in investigating opinions of strength and conditioning coaches on exercise selection to train strength-power and loading prescription patterns. This study will ask you a series of questions regarding your demographics, followed by 5 case-based questions. You will be asked questions about certifications you hold, membership associations, the country you work in, your level of education, your official title, how long you’ve been doing strength and [...]

Original Research: Isometric Force-time Characteristics and Test-Retest Reliability of a Rowing Specific Isometric Assessment

Abstract A reliable means of measuring strength and RFD in key rowing positions may be valuable for those who wish to assess the impact of strength programs on force output during rowing. The purpose of this study is to investigate the isometric force –time profile and reliability of an isometric test involving a rowing specific body position. Sixteen elite female rowers volunteered in the study. Test-retest reliability of the catch position isometric pull test (ISoRow Pull) was examined using a repeated measures design. Test–retest reliability of the isometric pulls was calculated using the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and coefficient of [...]
