The Paul Burgess Functional Medicine podcast

Sep 3, 2015

This week we are lucky enough to have both Pete Williams and Nick Jones with us to talk about performance and recovery in athletes and us normal folk!

We take a look at ‘over training’ and what it really means.

How to assess if you are doing too much and the questionnaires that can help.

Where does Heart Rate Variability monitoring possibly help.

Do we sometimes misinterpret data from research studies and are we making matters worse sometimes?

Pete discusses his HALT method of training (high allostatic load training)

Are ice chambers good for recovery or is there evidence to suggest they actually could shorten a career?

We also cover one of my favs, meditation, mindfulness and many other aspects often not taken into account when it comes to recovery like well thought out training schedules and nucleotides.
