Ep. 76: Daylight Savings Time & Jet lag/Mark Allen

In this episode:

Fall is here and with it comes the switch back to standard time. Why do we go through the annual changing of the clocks and is there any effect on health of doing so? I look at the evidence and include a discussion on a similar subject, crossing time zones for travel. How it impacts performance and why as well as what you can do about it. Plus, a conversation with six time Ironman World Champion and Master Coach Mark Allen.

Segments:

[10:40]- Daylight savings time/Jet Lag

[26:00]- Mark Allen
