S4P Radio, sleep science audio abstract review 11: Sleep practices implemented by team sport coaches and sport science support staff.

 

In our latest S4P audio abstract, we look at a new publication from the journal of science and medicine in sport titled “Sleep practices implemented by team sport coaches and sports science support staff: A potential avenue to improve athlete sleep?”. Written by Kathleen Miles, the aim of the study was to assess sleep hygiene knowledge of high-performance team sport coaches and sports science support staff, the sleep practices they implement with athletes; and the barriers to the more frequent use of these practices. You can access Kathleen’s paper at the link below, along with some important information from the Sleep Health Foundation, on good sleep habits and how to achieve them!

S4P Radio, Season 3, Episode 4: Exercise and its effects on sleep and mental illness with Oscar Lederman

S4P Radio, Season 3, Episode 4: Exercise and its effects on sleep and mental illness with Oscar Lederman

April 16, 2019

Season 3, Episode 4 welcomes Oscar Lederman. What was initially meant to be one of our monthly Audio Abstracts, the information presented to us by Oscar was too good to pass up! Having recently completed his PhD at the University of NSW, Oscars thesis gives a great insight on how we can improve the physical and mental health of young people in the early stages of psychosis, namely through exercise and lifestyle interventions.

As an Exercise Physiologist at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, Oscar gives a unique approach on how we can use exercise as a means to treat chronic health conditions, with his research focusing heavily on physical activity for mental illness. Along with his current commitments to work and research, Oscar also has previous experience in Physiotherapy and spent over four years as a Senior Surf Instructor with Let’s Go Surfing in Bondi Beach, Australia.

You can follow Oscar on Twitter @OscarLederman or check out some of his research at https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Oscar_Lederman. Hope you enjoy the episode!

S4P Radio, Sleep Science Audio Abstract 10: Weekend ‘catch-up sleep’ is a lie.

S4P Radio, Sleep Science Audio Abstract 10: Weekend ‘catch-up sleep’ is a lie.

April 3, 2019

After a short hiatus from Audio Abstracts we are back covering some new and interesting literature. In this episode of S4P we cover an article from the Washington Post titled “Weekend ‘catch-up sleep’ is a lie”. The article was written based on a paper called “Ad libitum Weekend Recovery Sleep Fails to Prevent Metabolic Dysregulation during a Repeating Pattern of Insufficient Sleep and Weekend Recovery Sleep” and looks at the effects of people who commonly increase their sleep duration on the weekend to recover from sleep loss incurred during the work week. You can access both at the links below!

S4P Radio Sleep Science Audio Abstract 9 : Do players and staff sleep more during the pre-or competitive season of elite rugby league?

S4P Radio Sleep Science Audio Abstract 9 : Do players and staff sleep more during the pre-or competitive season of elite rugby league?

January 20, 2019

In this episode of S4P we take a look at "Do players and staff sleep more during the pre- or competitive season of elite rugby league?" by Johnpaul Caia, Tannath J. Scott, Shona L. Halson & Vincent G. KellyThis study establishes the sleep behaviour of players and staff during the pre- and competitive seasons of elite rugby league. For seven days during both the pre- and competitive seasons, seven rugby league players and nine full-time staff from one professional Australian rugby league club had their sleep monitored via wrist actigraphy and self-report sleep diaries. Two-way
repeated measures analysis of variance determined differences between the pre- and competitive season in players and staff, with effect sizes (ES) used to interpret the practical magnitude of differences. Findings show an earlier bedtime and wake time for players (−34 min, ES = 1.5; ±0.5 and −39 min, 2.1; ±0.5 respectively) and staff (−29 min, ES = 0.8; ±0.3 and −35 min, ES = 1.7; ±0.4 respectively) during pre-season when compared to the competitive season. Despite this, no differences were seen when considering the amount of time in bed, sleep duration or sleep efficiency obtained between the pre- and competitive seasons. Our results suggest that early morning training sessions scheduled during pre-season advances wake time in elite rugby league. However, both players and staff can aim to avoid reductions in sleep duration and sleep efficiency with subsequent adjustment of nighttime sleep patterns. This may be particularly pertinent for staff, who wake earlier than players during both the pre- and competitive seasons.
