Did you know that most performance, training, and nutrition guidelines are largely based on research in men? That research on females is lacking? Do you know that because of this there are lots of female-specific performance and training factors that, for a long-time, have gone under the radar?
In this free 40 page e-book we will discuss in detail one of the unique performance and training considerations for women — the menstrual cycle — starting with the basics on what is actually going on, all the way through to how we might tailor our exercise and nutrition so that we can get the best out of ourselves on any day of our cycle.
We will also look into hormonal contraception including how it works, the different options available and the positive and negative implications of each type.
- Female-specific performance and training factors
- Menstrual cycle 101
- Tailoring your exercise performance and training to your menstrual cycle
- The menstrual cycle and nutrition
