Dr. Robert Lockie is an Assistant Professor in Strength and Conditioning at California State University, Fullerton. He obtained his undergraduate and Honors degrees in Human Movement from the University of Technology, Sydney in Australia. Dr. Lockie also completed his PhD at University of Technology, Sydney, within research that analyzed the sprint technique and strength and power capacities of field sport athletes. He has previously worked at the University of Newcastle in Australia as a lecturer in Biomechanics, and an Assistant Professor in Biomechanics and Strength and Conditioning at California State University, Northridge. Dr. Lockie has a wide variety of research interests in sport, including: linear speed, change-of-direction speed, and agility; strength and power training; post-activation potentiation; and performance analysis of different sports, including soccer, cricket, football, sailing, basketball, and rugby. More recently, Dr. Lockie has conducted research in the field of tactical strength and conditioning. This involves work with: first responders, including law enforcement officers and firefighters; correctional and custody assistant populations; and military populations including the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC). This research has focused on the performance aspects of tactical populations as it relates to academy survivability and job-specific tasks, in addition to injury prevention and career longevity.
