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.
