Episode 72 of the Guru Performance 'We Do Science' Podcast! In this episode I (Laurent Bannock) discuss 'Half-Time in Team Sports & Strategies that Influence Performance?' with Mark Russell PhD CSCS, Northumbria University, UK. In this session we get into:

  • Defining 'Half-Time' in team sports (i.e. in rugby, football, handball, netball etc)
  • Purpose of half-time (recovery, preparation, transition)
  • Overview of strategies employed in half-time (kit change, interaction with coach/players, injury management, body temperature maintenance, nutrition, hydration etc
  • Core temperature / muscle temperature at half time and relevance to performance in 2nd half
  • Hydro-nutritional strategies (muscle glycogen, blood glucose, fluid balance, sports drinks, mouth rinsing, gels, caffeine etc)
