We talk about the importance of recovery as Elle explains how she looks after herself, gives great tips for staying motivated during the winter months, highlights the importance of sleep and she and talks us through the supplements she uses.
What we discuss:

Listen to your body when deciding how often you train How a woman’s cycle can affect when she trainsThe biggest myth is that every training session has to mean you crawl out of it unable to walk. It doesn’t have to be the norm - a Yin Yoga session or a weight session taking time with your reps are as valuable.
