Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants

Throughout my career I've been fortunate enough to work alongside some fantastic sports science and medicine professionals. When I wrote The Strength and Conditioning Bible I was acutely aware of how much my interactions with them had influenced the content of my book and I was keen to find a way of offering the reader a taste of the insights that I've gained working alongside them. Just before the completion of the book I reached out to a select group of friends and colleagues and asked them to offer one or two gems relating to each chapter of the book.

They didn't disappoint!

Throughout the book you'll find pearls of wisdom from some of the best practitioners in their chosen field. We have insights from the world of fitness, NFL, Olympic sport, education, premiership football, international rugby and business. Below is a list of the additional contributors to The Strength and Conditioning Bible - not a bad group of people to be surrounded by!
