Timestamps to the show

01:00 Introduction and background in rowing.  A coach, an athlete and now a sports injury specialist.

02:00 What happens when an athlete gets injured?

04:00 The body is designed as a series of hinges distributing the load across our joints

05:00 When you get injured – getting pain is almost too late to spot an injury.  Recovery is an important part of training

09:00 Heart rate variability ()HRV) is a tool to measure training recovery.  A relaxed body will have high variability.

12:00 Strength is the common denominator to injury prevention.  Start teaching compound lifts to 12-14 year olds with body weight only.

14:00 A technical critique of lifting is important.  There’s a difference between exercising a joint and training it.  You have to train to fatigue to improve.

18:00 Surgery as a part of rehabilitation.  Regaining strength after a definite diagnosis is step 1.  But pain can continue. Some get surgery because of pressure to make the team rather than because of the injury.

30:00 The Rehabilitation process step 1 is diagnosis with imaging and anatomy insight and training load.  Step 2 is to judge the rate of force development

30:00 Mental support through injury.  A good sports injury practitioner has confidence in meeting the guidelines for recovery.

33:00 Many athletes lack awareness of what they eat.  Use My Fitness Pal app and record your diet for 2 weeks.  You need 2g of protein per kg of body weight to recover from a training session.

39:00 Find the free online resources.  Mobility WOD, getting mobile outside training – the best advice for hip, back and shoulder mobility.
