07 - The Myth about Sleep for Athletes - Part 2 - Nick Littlehales
If you haven’t listened to part 1 yet, I highly encourage it. It’s episode #6.
Just a reminder of who you are listening to: I’m in the middle of my interview with the world renowned Sport Sleep Coach, Nick Littlehales. Nick has developed the R90 Technique that has been proven time and time again to improve sleep for elite level athletes. This is outlined in great detail in his book Sleep The Myth of 8 Hours, the Power of Naps, and the New Plan to Recharge Your Body & Mind. He has quite the resume when it comes to working with elite athletes and coaches. Among those that he has consulted includes, Team Sky, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, New Zealand’s Olympic Rowing Squad, and various coaches within the NBA, NFL, and MLB. This week we talk about what you need to be doing in your morning routine, should your sleeping habits change with the seasons, and are sleep trackers worth it?
