In this episode, Jen catches up with Associate Professor of Exercise Physiology, Jackie Forsyth and Senior Lecturer in Sport Psychology, Claire-Marie Roberts to talk about their book The Exercising Female, chatting about why more research is needed when it comes to women in sport, and even debunking the odd period myth.


Throughout May, Jen's treating you to a selection of sporty Chops in which Jen chats to: Catherine Bond-Muir, CEO of the brand new motorsport series for women - the W Series - as well as drivers Alice Powell and Emma Kimilainen, to find out how the series got off the ground, and why it's so needed; Sarah Train from Kick It Out about homophobia (as well as other forms of discrimination) in football; and there's a Women's World Cup Special featuring *gasps* Alex Scott.
