Ep. 182 - #AuthenticAF P6 | Psychosomatics, Technique & Injury

Happy New Year to everyone, I hope you all had an amazing Christmas period and are recharged and ready for what I hope to be a much less of a rollercoaster ride compared to the unpredictable nature of 2020. We’re kicking it off with another instalment of #AuthenticAF, and this one is all about the interesting links between psychology and physiology, training technique and injuries. We started off with a quick training update, and it segued into all sorts of interesting topics, so without further ado, let’s dive in.
