Episode 063 - Don and Derek: Training Intensity and Sleep

D&D Fitness Radio Podcast show

Summary: For Episode 063 of the D&amp;D Fitness Radio podcast Don and Derek sit down and have a serious discussion about monitoring their own sleep as an indicator of recovery, training management and overall health and wellness. Using technology that is readily available to consumers, Don and Derek assess their sleep and compare their results against the activities they undertake during a typical week. This, of course, leads to a discussion about the intensity of the work being done in a typical training session. How does training intensity influence the need for more sleep and greater recovery? Can an overly intense training session, particularly late in the day, negatively impact sleep quality over one or several nights? What is high intensity training, truly? These and other questions are discussed in depth by Don and Derek in an attempt to determine how individuals can monitor their sleep and make adjustments to their training, recovery practices and diet to optimize performance and general health.<br><br>The D&amp;D Fitness Radio podcast is available at the following locations for downloadable audio, including: <br><br>iTunes – <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217" rel="noopener">https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217</a><br><br><a href="https://www.iheart.com/podcast/dd-fitness-radio-28797988/" rel="noopener">https://www.iheart.com/podcast/dd-fitness-radio-28797988/</a><br><br>Spreaker.com – <a href="https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-show" rel="noopener">https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-show</a><br><br>You can reach both Don and Derek at the following locations: <br><br>Don Saladino: <br><a href="http://www.DonSaladino.com" rel="noopener">http://www.DonSaladino.com</a> <br>Twitter and Instagram - @DonSaladino <br>YouTube - <a href="http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino" rel="noopener">http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino</a> <br><br>Derek M.
