With so much research constantly coming out every month in field of health and human performance it can be overwhelming trying to stay up to date. In an effort to keep people current, Dr. Shawn Thistle has put together an extremely valuable website – Fitness Research Review Service.
How RRS-Fitness works:
Every week, RRS posts 1-2 new reviews which analyze, contextualize, and put into practice the findings of a recently published scientific article from industry-leading peer-reviewed journals.
Each review takes 5-10 minutes to read and focuses on the practical application of results and functional knowledge of research methodology. The reviews are all contained in a database that subscribers have full access to (it now contains > 175 reviews!).
Topical content is varied and comprehensive, ranging from exercise sciences to sports injuries and rehabilitation.
The overall goal of RRS-Fitness is to increase knowledge translation from the scientific literature to those in contact with clients in all types of exercise and training environments.
