FEMALE PHASE TRAINING
Female Phase Training is an exercise prescription that takes advantage of hormonal fluctuations that occur in a woman's cycle and it's a game-changer.
Workout to your own rhythm...
Do you have days when your workout feels great, you feel strong, and capable and you leave the studio with added energy?
Do you experience other days when your basic workout is hard, you feel heavy and you lack your usual energy?
The distinct change in your levels of Estrogen and Progesterone during a monthly cycle can impact mood, energy levels, appetite and fuel utilisation - all of which can impact physical performance.
Fortunately, sports medicine physicians and dietitians have uncovered a close connection between an athlete’s menstrual cycle and how her body responds to training.
By understanding how the different phases of your cycle affect your hormone levels, you can time your training, and even your diet accordingly, to optimise your recovery and the physical and mental benefits of exercise for your body.
Female Phase Training is a monthly undulating program that shifts the intensity of your workouts within the month in response to your body's fluctuating hormone levels, working your body more when you are in the best placed hormonally to do so, and switching training style and intensity when you need to nurture yourself and take a more gentle approach.
