Abstract

COACHES AND PRACTITIONERS RARELY RECEIVE EXTENSIVE TRAINING IN IDENTIFYING AND INTERPRETING PEER-REVIEWED RESEARCH, MAKING IT NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO ACCURATELY DETERMINE THE VALIDITY OF POPULAR TRAINING, EQUIPMENT, AND SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS. THEREFORE, THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER IS TO (A) DESCRIBE A QUICK AND EASY PROCESS (RAPID METHOD) FOR COACHES TO GATHER INFORMATION AND MAKE EDUCATED DECISIONS ON UNFAMILIAR TOPICS AND (B) APPLY THIS METHOD TO A POPULAR ISSUE: HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE SUPPLEMENTATION.
