Training considerations across the lifespan: From the young to master athlete with Dr Nicky Keay (Part 2)

October 14, 2020

This episode continues from the previous episode where Trang and Dr Nicky Keay chat about hormonal health for athletes.

This time, Dr Nicky digs even deeper into hormonal health for athletes and ways you can easily monitor your hormonal situation day to day. From there, Nicky goes into training considerations across a lifespan, from exploring the idea of too much training for children/adolescents, to training around the menstrual cycle during adulthood and how menopause later in life can affect training too. 

A lot of this episode is especially relevant for females, but this episode is going to be useful for any health professional or athlete interested in understanding the bigger picture effects of hormones. Happy listening!
