Personal profile

Personal profile

John joined Hartpury University in August 2017 as a lecturer in Strength and Conditioning and has recently course led the BSc Sport and Exercise Sciences degree. Prior to this he lectured at the University of Chester whilst completing his PhD which examined the acute strength and power responses to resistance exercise in trained middle-aged males. John’s recent research has focused on velocity-based training, particularly seeking to explore the reliability and agreement of wearable accelerometers and linear position transducers. His other research interests include fatigue, exercise-induced muscle damage and ageing. During the course of his education he gained experience as strength and conditioning coach in a number of settings (e.g. Warrington Wolves RLFC, Welsh RU, GB rowing, Chester Hockey Club). Outside of academia he plays golf to a high standard, having played in national and international competitions, won numerous high level events, and represented Middlesex county at all levels (U13 to Senior 1st team). 

Research Interests

My current research interests are:

  • Ageing and resistance training
  • Acute strength and power responses to resistance training (e.g. fatigue, EIMD)
  • Velocity based training
  • Monitoring exercise (internal and external loads)
  • Agreement in measurement tools

Current Teaching

I module lead on:

  • Applied strength and conditioning (level 5)
  • Applied sport and exercise physiology (level 6)
  • Recovery and monitoring for sports performance (level 6)
  • Current issues in strength and conditioning (level 6)
  • Physiology of strength and conditioning (MSc)

In addition to the above I teach on:

  • Undergraduate dissertation (level 6)
  • Postgraduate dissertation (MSc)
  • Training prescription and programming (MSc)
  • Contemporary issues in strength and conditioning (MSc)
