If you’ve ever skipped the cooldown at the end of a gym class, or pushed through another workout when you’re running on empty – guilty – this episode is for you. Because, friends, we’re talking about recovery. Professor Shona Halson is a leading expert in the fields of sport performance and recovery, who has worked with the Australian Institute of Sport and the Australian Olympic team, as well as countless athletes here and internationally. She’s also part of the expert team on Be Recovered – an immersive online course via the health app Benefit Pocket – that’s all about the science and how-tos of recovery. Professor Halson talks to our managing editor Alex Davies about why prioritising recovery really is vital for performance and wellbeing, as well as how to make the strategies in the ‘recovery pyramid’ work for you. Plus, she gives the expert lowdown on everything from ice baths and compression gear to those massage guns you’ve seen athletes and fitness pros using.
