Sleep and Performance: Time to wake up! Free Webinar

Sleep and performance have become a prominent area of interest. How much should an athlete sleep? Is there a model to schedule training and travel to optimise sleep and performance? Do wearables work? All this and much more will be answered by sleep and performance expert Dr Ian C Dunican in this webinar.

Sleep and performance in sport

Recent research in sport has started to explore factors affecting sleep in athletes and also the implications for performance and injury. However, the research on sleep in athletes is in its infancy and the research in other industries is more comprehensive. Therefore, we’re honoured to have Ian present to us, his work and understanding of this area that precedes research in sport and calls on his experience in the military, mining and with other industries.

Date: Wednesday 18th April 2018

Hi, I'm Ryan, one of the bloggers here at Human Kinetics Europe Ltd. (If you want my official title, it's Marketing Executive.) I've always had a passion for health and fitness, having previously worked in gyms and played a variety of sports all my life. Now (as a somewhat of a washed-up athlete) I find myself working at the world’s biggest independent publisher of sport, health, dance and fitness resources. Which is amazing! Why? Because I get unrestricted access to all the best, most interesting, scientifically-proven writing on sports science. And what's more, I get to share it all with you!
