    Athletic Recovery with Ted King

    Athletic Recovery with Ted King

    Episode 4 of this season of The Podium is actually a rebroadcast of a conversation I had with Ted King on his King of the Ride podcast.  I worked with Ted on pro cycling’s World Tour, and it’s been a pleasure to continue the relationship since.  Conversations with him are always some of my favorite.  Ted describes himself as a “Professional World Tour bike racer turned professional bike rider.”  He now races across the US in numerous events each year, serving as an ambassador for cycling in general.  He also has his own (delicious!) nutrition company called Untapped.  Listen in as we discuss his recovery from a recent elbow injury, including the physical and psychological aspects that all recovering athletes deal with.

    The Importance of Breathing and Breathwork

    The Importance of Breathing and Breathwork

    We often overlook the unconscious act of breathing, yet mounting evidence points to the significant effect this activity has on our health and performance.  I have wanted to delve into this on the podcast for some time, but we needed to find the right expert to interview. 
    I am thrilled to have Mike Watts on the podcast for this episode!  Mike is an Oxygen Advantage Master Instructor and serves as the Director of Global Athlete Performance at Under Armour.  He has worked in the English Premier League, as well as at the national team level for China and England.  He is a wealth of knowledge on all things performance!  This conversation was a great one!
