The late Dr. Mel Siff was a senior lecturer in mechnical engineering, University of Witwatersrand.  His major areas of research were biomechanics, ergonomics, strength, conditioning and injury reahabilitation. He had a Masters degree ( Applied Mathematics) was awarded summa cum laude in brain research and a PhD in physiology specializing in bio-mechanics.  If you're a coach do you think you can learn from him!?  Supertraining, buy it!
