In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Senior Physiologist & Lead Sleep Scientist at the EIS, Luke Gupta. Sleep is still a hot topic when it comes to discussions around recovery with elite athletes. But with a growing body of research and a lot of talk around its importance, I still think there is a confusion of how to action a lot of it in the real world. But this is where Luke comes in as he works alongside multiple disciplines (S&C, sports science, psychology, etc) and with a large diverse group of players. It was a great chat with Luke which I think you will really enjoy!
In this episode we discussed…
- Who is Luke Gupta (background, experience and current role)?
How should we approach sleep in sport?
How is sleep regulated? And, why does knowing this matter?
How should we measure sleep?
How should we manage sleep?
