Media profile: Hayley Legg

Senior Lecturer - Strength and Conditioning

Hayley's PhD research focuses on the upper body strength capacity of older adults and how this relates to their ability to withstand a forward fall impact.

In recent years, she has moved away from the performance aspect of S&C and is more interested in the health and long-term influence strength training can have on an aging population. Prior to this, Hayley was interested in the biomechanics of weight room activities. 

Areas of expertise

  • Falls prevention
  • Strength training for older adults
  • Biomechanics of weight training
