Travel and body clock disturbances

J. Waterhouse, T. Reilly, G. Atkinson

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Rapid journeys to distant places across time zones produce a general malaise that lasts for up to one week. It can reduce an athletes' peak performance and disrupts training schedules and preparations for competition. It results from the slow adjustment of the body clock to the new time zone. Methods for reducing the severity and duration of these negative effects - for use before, during, and in the days after the flight - are described and their scientific basis is explained.
