Sleep Leads to Performance.

Here is a piece Dr. Allen contributed to for www.superhumancoach.com and for Competitor.

Dr. Shawn Allen, of “The Gait Guys” and ACO, treats many high level athletes. “[He] finds that two things are commonly abused when it comes to effective training, recovery and sleep. Many athletes overtrain and ignore the restorative benefits of ample recovery days but of the two, sleep is the most abused. In this day and age of productivity in the work place and family demands the average athlete has little time to train, work and recover adequately. And since work and family demands are less flexible, sleep for many tends to take a back seat.” Dr. Allen explains that there is no nutritional supplement or drug that can replace the benefits of a sound night sleep. “And yet, we continue to do what we need to do to get our workouts in, a valid yet jaundiced attempt to benefit our bodies, while at the same time sacrificing the beneficial aspects of health and recovery that can come only with sound repeatable sleep”.

A Cure for Smelly Feet?

Welcome to foot odor Friday. Today’s Theme: You guessed it!

Here’s one paper we though had merit (sure, go to Pub Med and search foot odor. There were 119 entries). We think we may try this in the office…

The Gait Guys: Yes, smelly…
