Jay Carter, Head Coach of Golf New Zealand and Talking Performance podcast host interviews Rachel about Performance, Performance in High Pressure Environments and explores breathing for performance in a bit more detail.
Part 1 focuses more on the biomechanics of breathing, how it can negatively impact performance when it’s not well controlled, and explores the difference between “breath work” (which Rachel DOESN’T do!) and optimising breathing for performance.
Part 2 dives deeper into arousal state control and some of the deeper “human” aspects of performance in high pressure environments.
If the introduction sounds foreign it is! Jay introduces the podcast in Te Reo Maori.
