The Menstrual Cycle is an important process to understand in the context of health, fitness and training. It has an impact on energy, performance and progress.
This video/podcast takes you through the science, the roles of oestrogen and progesterone and how to plan and adjust training and nutrition around your monthly cycle.
This is all from a general perspective - any issues you have or fundamental changes you think you might need to make should be discussed with a doctor or qualified health professional, whom you usually get advice from about contraception and hormone health.
