January 23, 2018, Posted in Conditioning

Dr. Anthony Shield is a professor at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. As one of the inventors of the NordBord despite working quite separately from the company, Dr. Shield is the self-proclaimed “grey beard” of a hamstring research group spanning QUT, Australian Catholic University in Melbourne, and several other researchers around the world. Dr. Shield offers a very measured perspective on hamstrings as well as what methods build robust muscles.

  • Where eccentrics fit into a program
