Off-season Training – Implementation and Challenges

We had a lot of fun hosting the NSCA Georgia State Clinic at Armstrong State University this year. Here is my presentation from the conference. Keep in mind this was certainly more about the challenges to implementation than the actual sets and reps. Click here to download as a PDF and click here to download as Powerpoint.

The Demands of a Single Elimination College Tennis Tournament

Figured I would share some of the most recent work from one of our ongoing projects. This was presented as a post at the 2016 Georgia State NSCA Clinic in Savannah, GA and the 2016 ETSU Coaches and Sport Science College in Johnson City, TN. Click here to download as Word document and click here to download as Powerpoint.

A substantial body of literature has investigated the physiological demands and time requirements of tennis match play (Fernandez-Fernandez, Sanz-Rivas, & Mendez-Villanueva, 2009). Tennis is chiefly an anaerobic sport with an average match duration of 1.5 hrs, point length < 10 seconds and work-to-rest ratios of 1:3-1:5 between points (Kovacs, 2007). However, little is known about the accumulated physiological and mechanical loads associated with college tennis tournament play. Despite the popularity of microsensor use to quantify demands in a variety of sports, particularly heart rate (HR), accelerometry and GPS sensors, limited data exists describing the demands of tennis match play using such microsensors (Duffield, Reid, Baker, & Spratford, 2010; Gescheit, Cormack, Reid, & Duffield, 2015). Much of the...
