“Just sleep right through the apocalypse.”
This week we have the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Kirk Parsley. A native Texan, Dr. Parsley began his fascination of sleep studies after having spent six years as a Navy SEAL and another five as the teams clinician. Hear why Dr. Parsley realized that despite his efforts instituting new diagnosis and treatment protocols, he felt his practices would be more embraced outside the current military bureaucracy.
In this episode we get to pick Doc’s brain about the correlation between metabolic syndrome and sleep, whether or not sleep pod’s are bogus, and if you really can make up for those long lost sleep years of shift work, raising kids, or late night raging on Red Bull-Vodka.
You will not want to miss Dr. Parsley’s top three tips on how to positively alter existing sleep habits and in no way do they include taking Ambien. Find out what “disassociation” is and why it is NOT the same thing is natural sleep.
If you’re listening to this now it means you’re awake and that’s good reason to stay vertical and take in the knowledge bombs here on Episode 95 of Power Athlete Radio.
Take the first step in getting a better night’s sleep by watching Dr. Parsley’s TED Talk here:
A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
