Optimising performance for the traveling athlete

Peter Fowler is a research scientist specialising in performance recovery.His research at Aspetar focuses on the impact of travel and sleep on performance recovery. Specifically, developing practical interventions for athletes that enhance recovery following travel, and minimise sleep disruption due to contextual factors, including long-haul travel, evening training/competition and environmental influences, particularly heat and altitude exposure.

Peter gives our listeners some practical advice on reducing the effects of jet lag and travel fatigue prior to competition.
