The female body responds very differently to training than a male, and that is where the all female approach here at KMJ can help you!
Monthly fluctuations in the female hormonal cycle can affect motivation, strength, fuel-system utilisation and overall recovery from training.
As trainers who work excusively with females, we understand the influences of the hormonal cycle and this helps us to program in a way that supports the changes the body is going through and ensure improvement in performance and body composition results.
Whilst every female’s cycle is different, the average womans cycle lasts for 28 days. We can use this information to break a training phase/period into 4 week blocks to periodise training around the cycle.
The best time to start a new program is right after your period has finished.
Estrogen is on the rise meaning your more likely to be feeling more motivated, energetic and outgoing.
Ovulation is the ideal time to ramp up intensity to attempt a new PR or Max Lift, and even learn new skills and motor patterns.
The luteal phase is challenging to fat loss goals. Moderating intensity and volume is needed during this phase as recovery is more limited.
In the final week before your period the body is more prone to burning fat for fuel.
however due to dropping hormone levels, many women experience cravings, especially for things such as fat, salt and sugar – nutrition should be tightly controlled to reap the benefits.
If you’re ready to transform your body and get results with other females who understand our bodies then give us a buzz!
