About us

Critical Powers is a group of four human movement scientists that started off as some sort of book club. The goal of this book club was to keep our scientific knowledge about exercise physiology fresh and to discuss about topics that were of interest to us. After a few meetings and a lot of interesting debates and ideas we decided that it could be a good idea to share our ideas and discussions online. Our goal is to challenge sports science and we hope you will challenge us!

This blog is the result. And this is our team:
