Introduction
My current research focuses on sports performance, primarily in athletics/endurance running and soccer. Specific areas of interest include; high-intensity interval training, performance profiling for training prescription, training dose-response, speed development, pacing strategies and the use of technology in sports.

Repeated-sprint training appears to be an efficient and practical means for the simultaneous development of different components of fitness relevant to team sports. Our objective was to systematically review the literature and meta-analyse the effect of repeated-sprint training on a selection of field-based measures of athletic performance, i.e. co...

In addition to the high technical and tactical demands, soccer match-play requires players to possess well-developed aerobic, anaerobic and neuromuscular capacities. Therefore, physical conditioning strategies aiming to develop these capacities are integral to the training process. To implement a successful conditioning programme, the physiological...

This study explores the potential ergogenic effects of WaveLight technology on pacing and performance in long-distance track events.
Article
Soccer match play dictates that players possess well-rounded physical capacities. Therefore, player physical development plans must consider developing several fitness components simultaneously. Effective individualization of training is likely facilitated with appropriate player profiling; therefore, developing a time-efficient and informative tes...
Article
Purpose The transition into full-time training represents a key period in the development of young soccer players. Here we compared the weekly training loads (matches, feld-, and resistance-training) of English Premier-League Academy soccer players from under-16 (U16), under-18 (U18) and under-23 (U23) age-groups during a training meso-cycle. Metho...

A report published by BASES (2021) investigating the impact of remote learning on Sport and Exercise student learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, identified a lack of interaction as a barrier to student engagement. This follows suggestions that students can be uncomfortable with verbal interaction in on-line sessions (Blackburn and Stroud, 2015),...

Purpose: To quantify changes in differential ratings of perceived exertion (dRPE) across a 2-wk repeated-sprint-training intervention that improved high-intensity intermittent-running ability and linear speed of semiprofessional soccer players. Methods: Thirteen players completed 3 (sessions 1-3) or 4 (sessions 4-6) sets of 7 sprints (group 1 [n...

Repeated-sprint training (RST) has the potential to be an effective multi-component training method for the physical development of team-sports players. Improvements in speed, power and aerobic fitness have previously been reported following RST. However, it is possible that the specific protocol used, modulates training responses and subsequent ad...

Change-of-direction ability is an important performance skill in football. Consequently, several testing protocols are used to assess this component. This study assessed the test–retest reliability of a modified 505 test (M505) and the change-of-direction deficit (CODD) in elite youth football players. Data were collected from 110 players from the...

Article
Full-text available
The ability to repeatedly perform sprints has traditionally been viewed as a key performance measure in team-sports and the relationship between 'repeated-sprint ability' (RSA) and performance has been explored extensively. However, when reviewing the repeated-sprint profile of team-sports match-play it appears that the occurrence of repeated-sprin...

Little is known about the responses of girl athletes to training interventions throughout maturation. This study evaluated group and individual responses to an 8-week, mixed-methods, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) programme in girl football players. Thirty-seven players (age 13.4 ± 1.5 years) were tested for 20-m speed, repeated-sprint abi...

Purpose: To compare the effects of two repeated-sprint training programs on fitness in soccer. Methods: Fifteen semi-professional soccer players (age 24 ± 4 y; body mass 77 ± 8 kg) completed 6 repeated-sprint training sessions over a two week period. Players were assigned to a straight-line (STR) (n = 8; 3-4 sets of 7 × 30-m) or change of direct...

There is currently no suitable kinematic system for a large-scale prospective trial assessing risk factors of musculoskeletal disorders. A practical kinematic system is described which involves the use of a single low-cost depth-sensing camera for the real-time measurement of 3-dimensional linear and angular pelvic and trunk range-of-movement (ROM)...

Objectives: When working with youth athletes planned manipulation of training load is of great importance. However, these athletes often partake in activities not planned by coaches, which may result in an excessive training load. This study investigated the contribution of ‘planned’ and ‘unplanned’ training to overall training load in a group of e...

Purpose The relationship between fitness and movement efficiency has yet to be explored in junior female football players; which is surprising considering the emphasis placed on movement efficiency in strength and conditioning practice, and the increasing popularity of women’s football. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate this r...

Taylor, JM, Weston, M, and Portas, MD. The effect of a short practical warm-up protocol on repeated sprint performance. J Strength Cond Res 27(7): 2034–2038, 2013—The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of a short, practical, 2-phase warm-up on repeated sprint performance when compared with more traditional warm-up protocols that contain...

Study Background: The within-season variation in fitness measures of elite youth female soccer players (<18 years of age) has not been investigated previously. Further knowledge of this area could allow more effective periodization of training, whilst also enabling coaches to design appropriate long-term athlete development models. This study inves...

The goal of this project is to investigate the physical and physiological differences required to successfully transition between elite youth and elite senior sport (primarily in team-sports). Specifically, this project will explore testing, training and monitoring practices that can be used to facilitate this transition.
