Episode 32: Snack: 5 Ways to Improve your Cardio that Nobody Told you About! 150 150 Stephanie Thompson
Today’s snack sized episode outlines 5 things to focus on in your off-season training program  that can help you improve your energy or attention throughout a game, and your ability to rebound between shots faster. Make what you do in your training program more effective by learning how to breathe better, manage your recovery, and structure your program to better prepare you for the season ahead.   Here are 5 ways that you can improve your cardiovascular and respiratory health that (likely) nobody told you about:  
  1. Nasal breathing at rest
  2. Nasal breathing to dictate intensity 
  3. Nasal breathing for recovery 
  4. Work capacity first 
  5. Intervals second
