Irish Examiner: Sleeping your way to success

irish-examiner-logo

Fatigue Science co-founder, Pat Byrne, recently spoke with the Irish Examiner’s Michael Moynihan about the link between sleep and athletic performance and how Fatigue Science technology is helping professional sports teams connect these dots.

He tells Michael that fatigue in sports is not “subjective” and points out that coaches and trainers should start with good objective data and metrics:

“We work with teams around the world, and what we tell them is that for many years, sleep and fatigue were analysed subjectively, but now there are easy and objective ways to measure how it helps performance. Once you have solid information, it helps to make good decisions.” Pat says, “We’ve been doing this for years in North America with the NFL, the NHL and the NBA.”

Rest and Relaxation- The First Step for Poor Sleepers 

One important job as a performance coach in sports is to balance both the training and recovery with our players. Currently, I am an NHL strength and conditioning coach for the St. Louis Blues, but my role extends beyond the weight room and hockey rink. Sleep is a major component of recovery, and supporting a good night’s rest is everything in sport. Our athletes are perpetually exploring ways of sustaining elite performances. Sleep is arguably the best method available to do so. With endless stressors, high-pressure scenarios, and chaotic travel schedules, it can be difficult to find the off switch when the time comes for sleep. In this article, I share my some personal "bio hacks" for resting more effectively. I also explain why we need to consider more effective strategies for rest, with the ultimate goal of setting ourselves up for higher quality sleep.
