    The science of trigger points with Paul Ingram

    The science of trigger points with Paul Ingram

    Paul Ingraham is a Vancouver science writer and a former Registered Massage Therapist.  He left that profession over concerns about pseudoscientific beliefs and practices and went on to create PainScience.com, a website about the science of pain, injury, treatment, and rehab, where he has published hundreds of articles and ten books on these themes, the most successful of which is his guide to the tricky topic of “trigger points.” Today, Paul talks with Brodie about the science behind trigger point release, myofascial release and other manual therapies.  
    This candid conversation reveals our real understanding of manual therapy and the careful steps runners need to make when being treated by therapists.

    Kristina's run smarter success story

    Kristina's run smarter success story

    Over the past few years, Kristina managed a few running niggles and running-related injuries due to spikes in training load. What resulted was a long-standing proximal hamstring tendinopathy which was getting harder to manage.
    Kristina jumped on a free injury chat and got the ball rolling with her run smarter journey. She then looked up some research papers on PHT and started progressive strength training.
    Still managing to run, Kristina followed many of the Run Smarter principles and shares them all in today's episode.

    How long does it take to lose fitness?

    How long does it take to lose fitness?

    When injured, one of the worst fears for an athlete is the possibility of losing fitness. This can be of detriment as runners often continue to run and irritate their injury based on this fear.
    In today's episode, Brodie covers a paper titled: 'Time course of loss of adaptations after stopping prolonged intense endurance training'.
    We investigate the loss of Vo2 Max and HR max with 12, 21, 56, and 84 days of rest along with countermeasures to mitigate this decline.
