Public Talk: Dr Stacy Sims. Women are not small men, so why would you train like one?
There is a sex and gender discrepancy in biomedical research, with women not specifically studied or included in research. The ramifications of applying male data to female athletes has a potentially great impact on health and sports performance.
The menstrual cycles effect on performance is finally being discussed and researched but coaching and education around it is still very behind. Even more taboo is the discussion around Menopause in active, competitive women, with little research based on, or for, this population.
Join Stacy T. Sims, MSC, PHD, a forward-thinking international exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist, as she discusses these topics and explains how she aims to revolutionise exercise nutrition and performance for women.
