The inspiration for this clinical question came from one of the members of my investigation team. Originally I was thinking about doing a question involving turf research, but once my team member came forward with this idea I found it much more interesting. I am always excited to learn more or partake in research regarding the field of strength and conditioning and how we can benefit athletes better in the setting. Brittany, Chandler, and I agreed to work together as we know we can depend on each other and all have a deep interest in the topic. I am looking forward to how the research will show us whether supervised workouts or unsupervised workouts produce better results. I am interested to see if the unsupervised produce results that may seem better, but produce more injuries as well due to the fact that there is not a coach present. A side piece that could be explored, but is not a specific part of our research would be looking at one on one sessions with coaches vs. group workouts.
Each week, the students in our Athletic Training Program are required to post a journal entry. These can be typed our video recordings. Each week we focus on a different topic relating to clinicals, research, EBP, classes, or life in general. We are also graded through our websites, so if you notice any weird notes or things that do not make sense it is probably part of an assignment. Take a minute to check them out!
