They discuss resistance training, and if heavy or light load is superior for gains, they talk about the importance of sleep for the athlete and the role of exercise at mitigating some of these risks, and also discuss overtraining and Johnathon’s own experience as a young athlete which spurred him into researching and writing on the topic.
