In this episode, I sit down with my good friend and mentor Mike Reinold. Mike is a physical therapist, athletic trainer, transmission coach, informally served as the head athletic trainer and physical therapist for the Boston Red Sox.
We dive into some really important concepts around what must occur to help athletes stay healthy during the competitive season. from a medical point of view, we talk about the differences between in season and out of season management. From a coaching point of view, we talk about the role of workload ratios as well as peer decision and communication to help athletes perform optimally across the entire season. Lastly, we cover Mike's advice for integrating the business aspect into best practices for the care of athletes, and not only working with ethics when they are hurt.
