    Episode Details
    It is sometimes assumed and has been argued, albeit not very well, that investigators are biased against including females in exercise science research. What evidence is there of this bias? Sure, there are identifiable sex differences in participation rates, but does this suggest something nefarious? Or, is there something(s) more benign that may explain the disparity between male and female participation? These are a few of the areas we discuss on episode 11 with Dr. Jim Nuzzo.    Our Guest
    Jim Nuzzo is Head of Exercise Science Research at Vitruvian and Adjunct Lecturer in the School of Medical and Health Science at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Western Australia. He can be followed on Twitter @JamesLNuzzo. Personal website: www.jameslnuzzo.com

    Postactivation Potentiation

    Postactivation Potentiation

    In recent years there has been a reinvigorated and growing interest in the investigation and use of potentiation complexes in strength and conditioning. In this episode we chat with Dr. Hugh Lamont to discuss the possible upsides and downsides of potentiation, mechanisms of postactivation potentiation (PAP) and strategies to consider when using potentiation complexes. This is a must listen for practitioners interested in or already using potentiation strategies!

    Women's Pay In Sport

    Women's Pay In Sport

    Equal pay for equal work right? Not so fast! As the U.S. women's soccer team doubles down on their demands for equal pay by calling out FIFA and suing U.S. Soccer, they highlight economic ignorance that has plagued us for some time. Of course, U.S. women's soccer is not the only example of the trouble with demanding equal pay for men and women in sport. In this episode we chat with John Phelan about women's pay in sport, economic fallacies and the impact these efforts may have on women's professional sport.

    Licensure in Strength and Conditioning

    Licensure in Strength and Conditioning

    Should you need a license to work as a strength and conditioning coach, sport scientist or sport coach? Unfortunately, those beating the drum for licensure simply assume that licensure improves the licensed profession. Perhaps more accurately, those calling for licensure have not for a second, considered what the current evidence suggests about licensure. So much for being evidenced based! In this episode we chat with Dr. Dick Carpenter about licensure, and the impact licensure generally has on quality, safety, and costs.

    Paying Athletes and the College Cartel

    Paying Athletes and the College Cartel

    Should college athletes get paid? If someone or some school is willing to do so, we sure think they should be! In this episode we chat with Andy Schwarz about paying college athletes, the college cartel the NCAA has presides over, and the history of how we got here. This is an excellent episode and we hope to have Andy back soon.

    Is equity in health and physical activity a reasonable goal? We think not!

    Is equity in health and physical activity a reasonable goal? We think not!

    Scroll through social media, open the paper or drone through the nightly news and you will probably see mention of equality/inequality or social justice. Unfortunately, this theme has crept into narratives from exercise and sport science related organizations and initiatives. In this episode we chat with Dr. Jim Nuzzo about his recent critique(s) of the equity in health and physical activity initiative from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
