There is a stampede toward evidence based practice in medicine and sport science, but as I take a step back and look at this I have some very profound concerns. The biggest concern is what if the evidence is flawed? I encourage you to read this article (John P. A. Ioannidis Why Most Published Research Findings Are False https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1182327/ the most downloaded technical paper from the journal PLoS Medicine) and think very critically and in depth before you jump into applying something that is “evidence based” just because it has statistical significance or the proper P value. You may also want to read: Why Most Clinical Research Is Not Useful http://journals.plos.org/plosmedicine/article?id=10.1371/journal.pm... The bottom line here is to be an informed skeptic and find the balance between evidence based practice and practice based evidence.
