Jet lag IS a really good excuse for poor athletic performance.
Ask any basketball player, football player or soccer player who has changed time zones and been expected to perform at his or her best, and I’ll show you an athlete whose hand-eye coordination and psychomotor skills* have been severely compromised by circadian dyschronism — or jet lag.
Don’t believe me? Go outside at midnight or 3 AM and shoot a few baskets and see how accurate you are. (I rest my case!)
Now try again at 11 AM. (Swish, right into the basket!)
Recovery from jet lag after a simple four hour time zone change without The Cure for Jet Lag can take 6 – 7 days. That’s not good if you’ve flown from New York to California or California to New York to compete against athletes who have driven 30-minutes from home to the stadium.
ZERO JET LAG?
How many days will it take to resynchronize your circadian or daily rhythms WITH The Cure for Jet Lag so your hand-eye coordination and psychomotor skills are sharp? Zero days on flights that entail passing through up to four time zones east or west. Dr. Ehret’s all-natural, proven 3-step plan enables you to step off the jet ready to kick ass.
Note from author Lynne W. Scanlon: Remember what Tiger Woods said when he was interviewed after Y. E. Yang snatched the PGA Championship away from Woods in August 2009? “[I ] struggled with jet lag all week . . .”
*Psychomotor skills are those skills that you have done so often that you don’t think about how to do them while you are doing them — tying shoelaces or riding a bike for example. At first, you really have to concentrate on the steps, later your brain takes over.
