In this Episode I interview Joel Jamieson. Joel is widely considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on strength and conditioning for combat sports, having trained many of MMAs best athletes since 2004. He is the author of the bestselling book “Ultimate MMA Conditioning” and has worked with and consulted extensively for teams and organizations ranging from Navy SEALS to Life Time Fitness and his BioForce HRV system is used by teams in the NFL, NBA, MLS, NCAA and more.
Joel and I discuss the impact of stress on the athlete, ways to monitor stress response using Heart Rate Variability (HRV), as well as practical interventions for improving stress response in athletes to improve performance. It’s a great discussion and we got into a lot of real-world ways to help athletes maximize their recovery and ability to handle the stress being placed on them in training and in life. Check it out!
