girl Train and Eat like a girl... because you are one!
​ 'Train and eat like a girl because you are one...' b.x B. Best tips for Women, Mama and Pregnancy training. The keys to exceptional health, fitness for women is training like a girl should, eating like a girl should and maintaining body wellness like a girl should. We have a very different make-up to men, which is quite obvious however we tend to forget this important fact. Our bodies as women respond differently to training and racing and are more responsive to a speed training method maintaining optimal health. Women are born endurance athletes able to withstand with a higher pain threshold (this sometimes to our detriment) but also a powerful ability. Our bodies respond rapidly to quality training techniques, as long as we remain well by keeping our health as optimal importance while training or racing. The major difference for pregnancy training is ensuring the health of the growing baby and us. Gone are the days of sitting around nesting (not that I believe this ever happened), but remaining active is a priority. Active bodies encourage good health for Mum and bub. However, an awareness of the changing body and increased weight upon the pelvis and lower back is priority in triathlon. In regards to triathlon training – the swim is highly beneficial in all regards; the bike needs to be altered to ensure safety for the spine, hips and obvious safety measures on the road. The run will need to be monitored as the body changes however the first and second trimester, the body can handle all types of running. Ensure high quality training, rather than quantity at this time, as energy levels are lower and the body is under greater stress. Its important for you to make responsible choices for yourself. Ensure your core is stable, your safety is paramount and if it hurts too much stop. TOP 5 tri-training tip for women or that soon to be Mama. 1. Quality over Quantity - Train specific muscle groups (legs, butt, abs and arms) for the swim / bike / run.
