Dr. Lee Brown PhD
Dr. Lee Brown PhD is the President of the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) He received his B.S. in physical education from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee. He completed his graduate work and obtained his Ed.D. from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. While a graduate assistant, he was responsible for isokinetic performance testing specifically designed to determine human responses to high velocity training. Dr. Brown joined the faculty at Cal State Fullerton in 2002. Prior to coming to California, he spent two years at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas as director of the human performance laboratory. Before Arkansas he was in Florida for 16 years serving as research director for an orthopaedic surgeons office and teaching and coaching at the public school level. He is President of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and is a Fellow of both the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the NSCA. Lee currently lives in Buena Park, California with his wife Theresa and their two cats, Eliza and Ilsa. Lee enjoys cycling, jogging, and trap shooting.His research interests Dr. Brown’s research interests currently focus on neuromuscular adaptations to high velocity exercise. He recently completed studies that looked at: (1) limb acceleration and its generic components; (2) the physiologic responses of biosymmetrically dissimilar effectors; and (3) the effects different warm-up protocols on vertical jump and baseball bat velocity.include sport performance, anaerobic assessment and high velocity neuromuscular adaptations.
