Despite not being A TON of research on female physiology, it seems like everyone is offering up different information, especially concerning menstruation and performance. That's why this week, we are sharing one of the informative sessions from our past Women's Performance Summit.

In this session, Kerry McGawley shares a deep literature review of current research on female physiology in relation to menstruation and performance. Reviewing studies about the percentage of athletes tracking their period and what hormonal symptoms athletes experience specifically - Kerry dives even deeper by discussing statistics surrounding male coaches and how this affects menstruation communication.

This episode is CHALK FULL of important information on Women's Performance. A must listen.
