This week saw the conclusion of Spring Camp with a team scrimmage on Saturday.
Made all the better by the glorious spring weather we have been treated to over this weekend, the Clansmen look in very good shape with both Defense and Offense firing nicely even at this early stage of preparation.
The video of the scrimmage containing highlight plays, hits and runs can be viewed below, enjoy!

Camp is continuing to go well, and as is readily apparent in the below footage the boys are hungry to make this season something special.
The Clansmen and the new Offensive Coordinator Jason Beck received further good coverage during the week on Global BC (see link below), which provides some additional footage and interviews.

This past week marked the start of the SFU Football Clansmen’s Spring Camp. After two months of hard work in the gym and sprinting/conditioning sessions, the camp represents the first chance for the players to impress the coaches, including the new and highly regarded offensive coordinator Jason Beck.
The team have been extremely motivated in developing themselves for the challenging GNAC campaign ahead which starts in September, and have been a pleasure to work with and learn from.
Below are this week’s introductory videos, stay tuned for more updates as camp unfolds!
I finally have found some time to write a brief update, things have a bit quiet on here due to my move to Canada but I am starting to find my feet! Vancouver is a fantastic city with lots to do, and I have been pleasantly surprised with how easy it has been to find my way around and start things up here.
I have just finished my third week at SFU, and I am very happy to say that the gamble has paid off. Derek Hansen is one of the best coaches I have ever met, I am learning a great deal everyday, and the facilities offer everything that is needed to run a quality athletic development program. The other interns have been hugely welcoming and great to work with (a big thanks goes out to them), which of course made the introductory period much easier to negotiate and made me feel more at home.
In terms of athletes, there is a lot of physical potential to work with, as well as plenty of opportunity to “teach the basics” with individuals/sports that are new to the program (or even structured S&C itself). The current workload is heavily focused on working with the American Football, Soccer and Volleyball teams (which are all sports I have never worked with before), so needless to say its been a lot of fun.
I’ll be posting something more substantial soon, in the meantime I can offer Rob Panariello’s new article on “How Much Strength Do Our Athletes Need?”. Not only are there some great personal anecdotes from the professional world of sports in what is another high-quality article (no surprise there), Rob also discusses some interesting concepts that should stimulate a great deal of training-based thought processes/evaluation.

So it’s official; I will be leaving Edinburgh for Canada in January to take on an internship role with the Simon Fraser University S&C department, which is run by Derek Hansen. SFU is the only NCAA University in Canada and happens to be located in Vancouver which isn’t a bad deal at all:

The role with the SFU “Clansmen” will include working with all the University’s key sports: American Football, Basketball, Soccer, Swimming, Track & Field, Volleyball and Wrestling.

Although I am very excited about everything, I will miss Scotland, Edinburgh and all the friends I have made here over the years very much, and want to thank everyone for making my time here as special and enjoyable as it has been.

This week we have another guest post by Rob Panariello, with today’s topic being overhead resistance training considerations as well as the effect of bench backing on shoulder mechanics.
Fantastic information from an exceptional practitioner, this latest article (click the PDF link below) is guaranteed to provoke some thought and provide you with important tools/information to evaluate your current overhead exercise practices.
A few weeks ago we found out that our paper with the title ”Peak Power, Force and Velocity During Jump Squats in Professional Rugby Players” was accepted for publication in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research (JSCR).
We had to go through 3 reviews, mainly due to the reviewers continuously not being happy with the sample size. Fortunately, through some further detail added (especially in the statistics portion where one of the primary authors performed some impressive skills that were in all honesty way over my head), we were able to demonstrate that the sample size was statistically appropriate/significant, and more than matched -if not improved upon- previous published research of a similar nature (especially given the fact our sample consisted of highly trained professional athletes).
Although the below pdf is still the “proof-read” version sent to us by JCSR (there are a few grammatical and administrative alterations left to be made) getting the final copy will take a while so I decided to post the study early for anyone interested as the main content will stay the same.
In addition, I have also attached a pdf of my undergraduate dissertation which was what the publication study was based on. The raw data is the same but there are a few different angles of discussion/focus (along with some different references) within this paper which may be of additional interest.

Finally, I would like to sincerely thank everyone who was involved with this paper, as well as all who sent in their congratulations and good wishes over the last few weeks. Thoughts/comments/critical review are of course always welcome, I hope you find the papers to be of use!

This week we have a guest post from Rob Panariello, a hall of fame S&C coach and Physiotherapist based in New York.
Readers of this site will recognise Rob as the author of a fantastic interview, as well as an exceptional article on Running Preparation after ACL rehabilitation written with Derek Hansen. I often describe Rob as the best coach/therapist only few know about (although this is changing rapidly as it should be), because put simply there are very few people that have his knowledge, experience and skill in both sports medicine and physical preparation disciplines, and the ability to combine these into effective athletic care systems.
In this article Rob addresses an issue that is very close to my heart: the art of correctly preparing an athlete -regardless of chronological or training age – to endure more specific training and/or competition loads. To most people in the field this concept will be known as “General Physical Preparation” or GPP.
This week’s post is an interview with Adam Trypas, a good friend, mentor and top-class coach.
Adam has just finished as the Head S&C coach for Toyota Rugby (Japan), and has been a tremendous source of knowledge and education for me over the last few years.
Weighing in with a competitive Weightlifting background and many successful years coaching athetes in professional Rugby League/Union (as well as Soccer and Water Polo), Adam has an astute knowledge of what it takes to succeed at the highest level, and is always more than willing to “talk shop” with anyone.
Some great thoughts and discussion in this interview, enjoy!
1. Hi Adam, thanks for taking the time to do this interview. Could you give my readers your background, and how you came to be a strength and conditioning coach?
No problem at all. It is very humbling to be asked to contribute to your page.
I come from an Olympic lifting background, which was instilled in me from a young age from my father who represented Australia in lifting in the 1970’s. Although I had absolutely no interest in lifting weights in my early teens, I just decided one weekend when I was 17yrs of age that I was going to start weightlifting the following Monday.
This review looks at two separate DVD series, however in my opinion (and for reasons I outline further down) it makes sense to buy both together as one complements the other perfectly.
The two DVDs in question are “Fundamentals of Linear Sprint Technique” and “40 Yard Dash Fundamentals” and feature Derek Hansen. Derek is among the best Track & Field coaches currently in action, having spent time under true coaching legends such as the late Charlie Francis. He is also the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach at the only NCAA college in Canada; Simon Fraser University (Vancouver). Derek was also involved in writing the ACL rehabilitation running article I posted a few months ago.
