In this episode, Nikki chats with athletic trainer Anna Hartman about what it actually looks like to train like a professional athlete and why this idea doesn’t typically align with what you need if this is not you profession.
- What a professional athlete’s day and workouts look like and what Anna helps them prioritize when they see her.
- How professional athletes often have to make trade offs where they potentially sacrifice their long term health for shorter term performance.
- The discrepancy between the marketing messaging of “training like an athlete” and the reality of what it means to move and perform well.
- Why rest, recovery, and a sense of safety are required for performance, injury prevention, and overall health + how the nervous system creates the conditions for this.
