Special Issue Information
This Special Issue of Sports will provide knowledge related to functional movement and functional movement training as they relate to health and sport performance. It is designed for those interested in a number of topics that concern functional movement, in relation to scientific inquiries of functional movement training protocols and performance outcomes. Topics will focus on mobility training and practices, the utilization of breathing techniques to influence performance, skill development in functional movement and recovery practices (physical, mental or nutritional). However, any research focusing on any aspect of functional movement is welcomed for review. Additionally, practical applications to training and performance will be stressed, so as to influence daily training protocols.
Prof. Dr. Andrew Hatchett
