Episode 60: Caffeine-good for performance and for life/Marshall&Paterson

In this episode:

Caffeine is one of the most frequently used drugs around the world and apparently for good reason. New research suggests that drinking coffee with caffeine can reduce heart disease and all cause mortality. There is also research that demonstrates that caffeine can enhance athletic performance. I review all the details and let you know how much coffee you should be drinking in order to benefit. Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson are the dynamic author duo behind the deservedly successful book 'The Brave Athlete; Calm The F*ck Down and Rise To The occasion'. They join me for a conversation about the book and how it informs their coaching and their lives.
