In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to Cheri Mah, Research Fellow at the University of California San Francisco Human Performance Centre. Cheri is an expert when it comes to sleep and in this episode talks about how athletes can improve the quality and duration of their sleep. In this episode, we run through some real life scenarios and get Cheri’s view on dealing with common headaches coaches have when traveling for away matches.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Cheri Mah (background, education and current role)
  • How sleep can affect athletic performance
  • Tracking sleep in the applied world – validity & reliability of methods
  • How much sleep do we need? How can we find out?
  • Strategies to maximise sleep
  • Benefits & pitfalls of napping throughout the day
