06 - The Myth about Sleep for Athletes - Part 1 - Nick Littlehales

This week I’m introducing you to part 1 of a 2-part episode on Sleep.  You get to listen in on my conversation with world renowned Sport Sleep Coach, Nick Littlehales. Nick has developed the R90 Technique that has been proven time and time again to improve sleep for elite level athletes. This is outlined in great detail in his book Sleep The Myth of 8 Hours, the Power of Naps, and the New Plan to Recharge Your Body & Mind.  He has quite the resume when it comes to working with elite athletes and coaches. Among those that he has consulted includes, Team Sky, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, New Zealand’s Olympic Rowing Squad, and various coaches within the NBA, NFL, and MLB. This week we talk about Nick’s role in being apart of revolutionizing the British Cycling team’s sleeping habit, explain what sleep really is and debunk the myth of 8 hours a night.
