Your physician keeps you healthy by prescribing
interventions shown to be effective in carefully controlled
scientific studies. Shouldn't your
coach prescribe workouts according to the same principle?
"Research-Based Coaching" is my term for the practice of
using data from
scientific research to help athletes perform their best. I did most of my
reading and writing in this area when I was a physiology graduate student.
After I received my Ph.D., my
research focus shifted from human muscle metabolism
to bacterial metabolism and then to protozoan parasites, so I no longer keep up with the exercise research
literature as I once did.
