The second webinar of our four-part series with Ian Craig and The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) will be Overtraining from a Functional Health Perspective.
Date: Wednesday 8th March 2017
Time: 3 pm GMT
This webinar will analyse Overtraining Syndrome (OTS) from an exercise physiology perspective. It will also look at the importance that training load, sleep quality and stress management has on an athlete’s performance and development.
Ian will provide analyses and discuss the influence of functional medicine and look at how the Adrenal Stress Index can influence an athlete’s performance. He also provides assessments of Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) and discusses mitochondrial assessments can have in testing for OTS.
This webinar enables attendees to:
- Review OTS from an exercise physiology perspective.
- Explore the endocrine and nervous system imbalances of adrenal fatigue and chronic fatigue syndrome.
- Understand how mitochondria disruption can lead to a state of chronic fatigue.
- Have a working list of restorative lifestyle practices for the recovery from OTS.
- Understand some nutritional and nutraceutical practices for the recovery from OTS.
