For this journal club I have chosen the following paper:
I have decided to do this paper because the benefits of exercise on bone density is an area of interest to me and I follow one of the authors, Craig Sale, on Twitter. Craig is a reader in Applied Physiology at Nottingham Trent University and has published a large number of papers on the impact of exercise and nutrition on health and disease in humans. One of his research areas of interest is bone health and metabolism.
Do you have a question you would like to ask the researcher Craig Sale about the paper? If so, send me a Tweet with your question by Monday 27th February.
When you read the paper, have a think about the way the research was carried out and if it adds anything to what we know about this area. Do you think we can take anything away from the conclusions and was the methodology appropriate for the research? You can find some documents here that might help with your critical appraisal of the paper.
I will summarise your comments on Sunday 4th March.
Happy reading and don’t forget to spread the word about #ssjournalclub.
