Biosketch:
Dr. Lockie joined the faculty of the Department of Kinesiology in 2016 and is currently an assistant professor in strength and conditioning. He obtained his undergraduate and Honours in Human Movement from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) in Australia. Dr. Lockie also completed his PhD at UTS, within research that analyzed the sprint technique and strength and power capacities of field sport athletes. Following the completion of his PhD, he worked at the University of Newcastle in Australia as a lecturer in Biomechanics. In 2014, Dr. Lockie moved to the USA to become an assistant professor in biomechanics and strength and conditioning at California State University, Northridge, before shifting to his current position at Fullerton. During this time, Dr. Lockie has both led and assisted in a wide variety of research into linear and change-of-direction speed, agility, strength and power training, and performance in a number of different sports. These sports have included soccer, basketball, cricket, rugby league, rugby union, sailing, and American football.

Interest Area:
Dr. Lockie’s research has focused on investigating linear and change-of-direction speed in athletes, both from a technique and training perspective, the potentiation of linear and change-of-direction speed, profiling of specific athletic populations, and documenting the mechanics of strength exercises.

Current Projects:

  • Acute post-activation potentiation effects of strength or power exercises on linear speed, change-of-direction speed, and agility
  • Movement kinematics, force, and power of deadlift and bench press exercises
  • High-intensity running and repeated-sprint ability in soccer players
