Your host Stephen McCarthy will be looking at how sleep affects performance.

Sleep is one of those overlooked areas of athlete development and quality of life.. Our lifestyle leads to staying up late and getting up early.  When this occurs over a long period of time, your body starts to breakdown and will not recover as fast as it had in the past.

Reintroduce sleep to your daily routine and your health and recovery time will improve.
