Sam Orange, PhD (sam.orange @ newcastle.ac.uk) is a Lecturer in Exercise Physiology and Deputy Director of Research in the School of Biomedical, Nutritional, and Sports Sciences at Newcastle University. His research focuses on finding the best ways to support cancer survivors in helping them become physically active and how physical activity can improve some of the side effects of cancer.
In this episode, Sam talks us through his research paper Comparison of the effects of velocity-based vs. traditional resistance training methods on adaptations in strength, power, and sprint speed: A systematic review, meta-analysis, and quality of evidence appraisal which discusses velocity-based training, the effectiveness of using velocity feedback to regulate resistance training load on changes in muscle strength, power, speed, and much more.
