So, you are an athlete; you could be at the beginning of your athletic journey and want to use the benefits of your cycle to get results. Maybe you are well into your athletic grove and realise this menstrual cycle thing is not going away and would like to see how it can help you instead of hindering you. Or maybe you are a coach or administrator in your sport wanting to get the best out of your girls.
This online program is designed to show you how to get results you want by merely working WITH your body instead of AGAINST it.
And you are not the first athlete to look at this.
Research from other sporting teams around the world, including here in Australia, shows how the menstrual cycle can impact on performance, player health and injury risk.
On Sunday 7 July 2019, Rose Lavelle scored the goal that confirmed the United States’ Women’s World Cup triumph. The next day, her period began.
Lavelle’s coaches knew this because the American team deployed a unique programme to minimise the adverse performance impact of the menstrual cycle.
In their search for marginal gains, the team contracted an expert consultant to provide research-based insight on how to use the changes that happen in the body throughout the menstrual cycle to educate and inform the coaches. This program helped look at training, injury, performance.
Both from a research perspective and anecdotally, they found the premenstrual and during-menstruation phase is the worst – when hormones decline and are at their lowest level.
But with a comprehensive understanding of each player’s cycle and related medical indicators, the coaches were able to develop strategies to minimise the performance impact – adjusting diets, sleeping habits, lifestyle factors and training loads for each player.
To quote the coach “It empowered them to be proactive”.
