In today’s episode we have a fascinating guest Patrick McKeown author of the ground breaking book ‘The Oxygen Advantage’
‘Groundbreaking’ and ‘Revolutionary’ are words that are perhaps over played in this modern world of uber hype but the information you are about to listen to definitely falls into those categories.
His work has really got me to think about what is potentially a missing link to peak performance.
In terms of maximising our abilities we rightly spend a lot of time looking at the food we eat, the drinks we take on board, the exercise we engage in but how many of you have ever considered the way you breathe may be having a significantly detrimental effect to both your health and your performance?
