On this episode of Research to Reps Roundtable our guest Mark Stephenson, the Applied Sport & Performance Scientist at Tactical Sports Science Innovations, bridges the gap between tactical athletes and sport athletes. Approaching it with the knowledge that we’re all human beings and “fitness is fitness”, he covers topics like performing under stress, athlete monitoring technologies, training for neuroplasticity and the role of sport science. Get into the nerdy weeds of the research with us as Mark brings us actionable ways to bring the research into our training.
