Training and Performance

Planning your training is vital to achieve improvements in your sport performance. This includes the type of training (endurance, HITT, resistance, skill, specific etc), the intensity and frequency. Training planning involves macro (over time) to micro (each session), but don’t forget everything else!

As part of your training plan, ensure you include your menstrual-related symptom management plan…recovery strategies, your diet and nutrition, stress management at pinch points of training and life activities and how this all relates to reducing the symptoms you experience across your menstrual cycle and prevention to absolutely smash your training and sport performance.
