In the latest ‘Experts in Sport’ podcast, host Martin Foster (Applied Sport Management Lead) is joined by Professor JB Morin from Université Jean Monnet (St Etienne) and Dr Bill Haug, Strength and Conditioning Lead at Loughborough University.
During the episode, JB and Bill discuss the methods of measurement and touch upon the importance of individualisation, talking around key topics such as how stronger does not always mean faster, and how and why velocity spectrums may change from one individual athlete to the next.
The panel also explain how to create an optimal force-velocity profile for an athlete, explaining the various training methods to optimise performance. Both experts also discuss the simple methods that can be used to measure force velocity and power, without the need for a force platform.
The Experts in Sport podcast is a regular series that brings together experts from across Loughborough University with external thought leaders to discuss the latest research and hot topics in sport and academia with new episodes launched every two weeks.
