Episode 56: Athlete heart with Murray & Papadakis pt2/Hunter Allen

In part 2 of her interview with Dr. Michael Papadakis, Helen Murray of the Inside Tri Show explores the association between endurance sports and atrial fibrillation and gets some insight in to the risks for sudden cardiac death that while rare are obviously important! The doctor addresses the ideas behind screening and whether or not athletes should concern themselves with this risk to any great degree. Plus, I am joined by Hunter Allen, a giant in the world of endurance cycling when it comes to understanding power and how to best use it to inform your training and racing on the bike.
