After originally starting out as a blog site, interest in the MTOUGH site grew steadily last year and we felt it was time to renew, update, and evolve the site. We hope you like the new format. Over the coming months we will be posting information about research conducted by the MTOUGH team and external collaborators. Several research projects are ongoing and we will be bringing news of these as they are progessing, accepted for publication, or published in academic journals. In addition the MTOUGH team regularly present work at conferences so we will alert interested readers to upcoming events. To keep track of MTOUGH you can now follow us and be alerted to new posts by providing an email address (bottom of the main page). We also hope to add discussion items from time-to-time and to open out the site to views of other interested coaches, sportspeople, academics etc. If you have something to say about the site or our research, then please get in touch.
