Research, research everywhere, but no one stops to think! We’re intent on applying evidence-based methods, as we should, but does the evidence in a research study, or an interpretation of a study, always stand up to scrutiny? Will you simply accept what you read without question, or will you join us on a journey of wisdom through The Fine Print?
Join our study club! Send us a message on Instagram, @Fitnessforconsumption, and let us know what study you would like us to cover and you might just join us on the episode!
Topics discussed in this episode:
Abstract - A summary of a research paper that explains the hypothesis, methods, results and conclusions of the study

Methods - A detailed explanation about the subjects, the tasks they performed, specific laboratory equipment used to collect data, investigative procedures and statistical analyses
Results - A tabular, and sometimes graphical, presentation of the research findings
Conclusion/Discussion - The investigators’ interpretation of their data, often editorialized, providing insights into how the data relate to their research question
Torque - A force whose tendency is to cause rotation
Axis of rotation - A point around which an object rotates
