This week on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher and Spreaker, STT talks speed training with Dr. Lee Brown. Dr. Brown received his B.S. in physical education from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee and completed his graduate work and obtained his Ed.D. from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. While a graduate assistant, he was responsible for isokinetic performance testing specifically designed to determine human responses to high velocity training. Dr. Brown joined the faculty at Cal State Fullerton in 2002 and is the current Director of the Center for Sport Performance and the Human Performance Laboratory. Prior to coming to California, he spent two years at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas as director of the Human Performance Laboratory. Before Arkansas he was in Florida for 16 years serving as research director for an orthopaedic surgeon’s office and teaching and coaching at the public school level. He was President of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and is a Fellow of both the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the NSCA. He also served as President of the NSCA Foundation overseeing an almost four million dollar endowment. His research interests include sport performance, anaerobic assessment and high velocity neuromuscular adaptations. His recently completed studies include: limb acceleration and its generic components; physiologic responses of biosymmetrically dissimilar effectors; and the effects of different warm-up protocols on sprinting, vertical jumping, throwing velocity and baseball bat swing speed.
