Can the pursuit of high performance come at the cost of health Doctor Izzy Smith

September 16, 2020

In this episode, I sit down with Doctor Izzy Smith to chat about how to train like a boss while also maintaining optimal health.

Izzy speaks about the health benefits of exercise, how to optimise recovery, if there are any detrimental effects of too much training, whether you should train if you're sick, training considerations around the menstrual cycle, and much more!

This is a highly informative and fun chat with Izzy, and can't wait for you all to hear it. Enjoy!
