Dr Shona Halson is an Associate Professor at the School of Behavioural and Health Sciences, Australian Catholic University. Previously, Shona was a Senior Physiologist at the Australian Institute of Sport for 15 years. Shona has a PhD in Exercise Physiology and has over 100 peer-reviewed publications in the areas of sleep, recovery, fatigue and travel. Shona is an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance and Shona was selected as the Director of the Australian Olympic Committees Recovery Centre for the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games. Shona consults regularly to world’s leading brands including Nike and the Australian Open Tennis Tournament.

This really is a fascinating deep dive into the Science of Athlete Recovery and topics that Shona outlines includes; just what athlete recovery is and why it is important. Why fewer athletes that you may perceive are actually overtrained. The critical role that sleep plays in optimising an athlete’s recovery and adaptability to training. The role that life stressors play in an athlete’s recovery. Why it’s okay to not feel great after a training session and why listening to your body and backing off at times are absolutely critical.

Shona also explores the science around popular recovery modalities including Cryotherapy and Massage Therapy and Shona shares her physical challenge for the week which will really challenge you.
