Chris is a UK based physio and researcher. His past research has focused on running techniques for injury prevention and performance.
In today's episode, I talk with Chris about his opinion on the load versus capacity relationship to reduce the risk of injury.
Chris details the sequence of events from acute fatigue, to microscopic tissue damage, macroscopic tissue damage, tissue failure and eventually, injury.
Our conversation dives into the factors that influence loads such as training errors, rapid changes, footwear and terrain, along with factors that influence the body's capacity like age, previous injury, sleep and psycho-social factors.
