When it comes to recovery, the onslaught of new trends and research can make it difficult to separate the noise from the science. In this episode, we’re digging deep into recovery and giving practical tips on how to incorporate it into your overall training routine. We’re sitting down with Dr. Shona Halson, Associate Professor in the School of Behavioral and Health Sciences at the Australian Catholic University, a former Senior Recovery Physiologist at the Australian Institute of Sport, and Director of the Australian Olympic Committee Recovery Center. Dr. Halson breaks down the ways we can all maximize our recovery time -- everything from understanding what type of compression or hydrotherapy works for you, to the science behind mental recovery and sleep, and how to structure your active recovery days.
When Kevin Love, power forward of the Cleveland Cavaliers, was drafted into the NBA in 2008, he needed to find a way to handle the physical and mental demands of playing at the pro level. Today, Kevin isn’t just a five-time NBA all-star or a 2016 NBA champion -- he’s also an avid yoga practitioner and an advocate for mental health. By incorporating yoga into his daily training routine, Kevin has come to understand the “mind-body connection” -- that taking time to breathe, to meditate, to set an intention, no matter how small, can have huge impacts on all facets of fitness. On this episode of TRAINED, Kevin tells us about how his early sports experiences have helped him stay competitive, how his approach to nutrition, recovery, and sleep has changed over the course of his career, and how he plans to keep playing basketball for as long as he can.
To kick off Season Three of TRAINED, we’re sitting down with U.S. Soccer Team midfielder Julie Ertz as she and the U.S. Women’s National Team prepare for this year’s competition in France. In 2015, Julie and her team won the competition, but once you’ve made it to the top, where do you go from there? How do you motivate yourself to keep training, to never stop striving to be your best, to perform at your highest level? For Julie, it’s about creating a training community. With the help of her teammates and her husband, Philadelphia Eagles tight-end, Zach Ertz, Julie continues to push herself in the gym and on the pitch. She tells us about her training routine, her take on nutrition, and why she has learned to embrace adversity.
Welcome back to TRAINED. Presented by Nike. Our third season launches on June 6 with a conversation with pro soccer player Julie Ertz. Through years of research and working with the world’s best athletes, Nike has learned that greatness isn’t born, it’s trained. This podcast explores the cutting-edge of holistic fitness to help make you a better trainer and athlete. Listen to conversations with athletes and industry experts to discover the latest innovations, insights, and trends making the biggest impact on the training world.
Food is complicated. The “rules” change all the time, and every body is different. So how do you decide what’s right for you? For Melissa Hartwig-Urban, Co-creator of Whole30 and four-time New York Times bestselling author, it was a process. She started blogging about her “elimination diet” as a way to improve her training and recovery and share her results with her training community. Ten years later, her approach has become one of today’s most-popular eating programs: The Whole30. In this episode, Melissa explains why The Whole30 isn’t meant to be a long-term diet but, rather, an experiment to figure out which foods work best for you. She also provides us with tips on how we can learn to identify, cook, and eat “real food,” how to make meditation a consistent part of training, and how we can all cultivate a healthier relationship with food in order to bolster our performance, recovery and mindset.
Allyson Felix is a World-Champion sprinter and an Olympic gold medalist. Over the course of her career, Allyson has won nine Olympic medals and 16 IAAF World Outdoor Championships, making her the most-decorated athlete in track and field history. Despite injuries, a harrowing pregnancy, and a rough road towards her first gold medal, Allyson has always stayed resilient in the face of challenges -- but getting to that mindset wasn’t easy. Allyson remains one of the greatest athletes of all time because of her ability to plan for the unexpected and her willingness to be patient with her body.
Few athletes have had a career as successful as sprinter Michael Johnson. As a four-time Olympic gold medalist and the only male athlete to win both the 200 and 400 meter dash at the same Olympic games, his unique running style changed the running world forever. Even in retirement, Michael continues to trail blaze. In this episode, Michael shares how listening to his body has helped him forge his own path to success, how his mental resilience allowed him to fully recover from a stroke, and how his training company, Michael Johnson Performance, has helped athletes of all ages and levels focus on fundamental skills to take their training to the next level.
Despite years of research, clinical trials, and advancements in biotech, no one has cracked the code on why exactly humans sleep. But Founder and Director of U.C. Berkeley's Center for Human Sleep Science, Dr. Matthew Walker, is very much in pursuit. In this episode, Matthew, author of the New York Times Bestseller, Why We Sleep, gives us an in-depth look at how sleep can enhance everything from our nutritional cravings to our mood and anxiety levels to our reaction time and breaks down his top five tips that anyone can use to get a good night’s sleep tonight.
Sara Sigmundsdóttir has become of one the fittest athletes and most successful weightlifters of all time. It's not because she has followed the status quo, but because she has developed an eating plan, a sleep schedule, and a training routine that works for her. In this episode, Sara tells us how, through years of trial-and-error, goal-setting, and a positive mindset, she has taken her career from a small gym in Iceland all the way to the global stage in CrossFit, and is building up for the 2020 Olympic Games.
We’re back with part two of our New Year's episode, focused on setting realistic, long-lasting fitness goals that will carry us through 2019. Today, we focus on sleep and recovery goals with psychologist Dr. Jennifer Martin and physical therapist Derek Samuel. These industry experts explain the physiological and psychological benefits of sleep and recovery, why sleep and recovery are inextricably linked, and how to leverage both to get an edge in your training.
