About Research

Tel: 020 8240 4000


Jamie Tallent joined St Marys as a Senior Lecturer in Strength and Conditioning Science in May 2016. Previously he was the lead strength and condition coach for a County Cricket Club for 5 years. He has over 10 years’ experience working in professional and developmental sport and currently supports international and national athletes. He is an UKSCA tutor and also sits on the grants panel. Jamie has a PhD investigating neurological adaptations to eccentric resistance training and has authored/co-authored numerous peer-reviewed publications. He specialises in eccentric muscle contractions, neurological adaptations to resistance training, acute neuromuscular fatigue and has an interest in cricket related research.
