Jet Lag and Swim Meets

This week at Swimming Science we explore the science of jet lag and performance, particularly in the context of swimming. 

Part of being a great athlete is taking your game on the road.  Unless you want to be the lifetime king or queen of the local summer league, meets in distant time zones are inevitable.  We all know athletes who habitually leave their best efforts at home, while others thrive no matter the time and place.  It’s hard to scientifically separate the effects of jet lag and travel from the added pressure of big events, but there’s no denying that travel across time zones can stress the body and mind.  Go HERE for the complete post.
