Women's-specific Nutrition and Performance
Women’s physiology is different from men’s. Yet most female athletes train, fuel, and hydrate no differently than men do. From the way we metabolize food, to how we build muscle, women’s bodies have specific needs—when those needs are met, we perform at our best.
In this clinic, learn how female physiology differs from men’s, and why that matters for female endurance athletes. We’ll discuss how to shape nutrition and hydration to optimize performance, how and when women benefit most from strength training, and how to control fluctuations in performance through a monthly cycle, as well as through each generation of life.
Expect to come away with specific steps that will allow you to capitalize on your physiology, rather than working against it. This clinic is appropriate for female endurance athletes above the age of 18, including perimenopausal and postmenopausal women.
