You’re right, there isn’t much in the way of research on female athletes. Strength training becomes an increasingly important activity, and many women I’ve worked with have had to reconfigure their nutrition, as they become more sensitive to carbohydrates and what used to work well for them doesn’t as well. I’d love to say I have a list of resources for you, but sadly, the only book I know of is called Roar, by Stacy Sims, who is working to change the research environment. I’m curious to know if anyone else has good resources, so thanks for posting!
Have you any advice, recommendations of sources with good quality information, on training going into peri menopause/menopause?
A main goal for me is to to continue to love being active and enjoy adventures in the mountains and paddling.
From the forums and your information at uphill athlete it strikes me that the information/evidence based data for female athletes is rather sparse compared with men, and I imagine that data will be even sparser for women in or nearing menopause.
Excellent forum, many thanks, Jane
