Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


Increasing daily step counts and consuming a greater range of nutrient-dense foods weekly is the take home message from the first of this month’s featured articles from Oftedal and co-workers reporting from a study of more than 1500 individuals in a large regional Australian city. In the second feature article, Channon, Matthews and Hillier, utilising a mixed methods approach, examined the standardisation of rules of medical care at mixed martial arts events in the UK. They recommend that there is an urgent need for the development of standardised and enforceable care guidelines to ensure health of participants is not compromised. In the third feature article, Quinn’s group, utilising an observational methodology, provide coaches with sport-specific activity profiles of female rugby league players that can be used to individualise training prescription.
