Visiting Speaker – Senior Coach for Harlequins Rugby Team
Each year our Sport students, and students from local colleges, are invited to our Sport Science Symposium. This year’s symposium involved a talk from guest speaker Adam Bishop, who is the Senior Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Harlequins Rugby Team.
Adam delivered a talk on periodisation for the Harlequins team and adaptations to exercises for certain positions, such as the front row of the scrum. In addition to speaking about his role as a coach, Adam spoke about his involvement in the World’s Strongest Man competitions. He shared with students the story of his transition from rugby player to competitor, taking them through his training programme, lifestyle changes, and dietary intake. He also demonstrated a deadlift at our gym during his visit.
