192. Dr. Stacy Sims On Female Physiology and Training Differences Between the Sexes

The Strength Running Podcast

Everything from training to fueling has predominantly been researched on men and written about by men. Women’s hormonal variations tend to skew research data so those results are often thrown out. As a professional triathlete, Dr. Stacy Sims recognized that she was poorly served by the same recommendations that male athletes were getting. So she set out to change that through her work.  She has written a book called ROAR: How to Match Your Food and Fitness to Your Female Physiology for Optimum Performance, Great Health, and a Strong, Lean Body For Life where she breaks down her message that “women are not small men”. Women can learn to cater their training, nutrition, and hydration when they understand the changes they go though in their cycles. You can get an introduction to her work to the now famous TED Talk titled "Women are Not Small Men". In our conversation today, we talk about: Nutrition recommendations throughout a menstrual cycle and different phases of life RED-S syndrome with strategies for prevention and treatment Changes that women undergo during peri and post menopause Common differences between men and women in training and nutrition The future of exercise physiology research Links & Resources from the Show: Learn about courses and coaching resources from Dr. Stacy Sims Follow her on Instagram and Facebook WILD.AI coaching platform High Performance Sport New Zealand organization Kathryn Ackerman at Boston Children's Hospital Thank you to XOSKIN for sponsoring this episode, who’s offering 20% off with code ‘SR’ at checkout!

Stacy Sims: Training and Exercise in Pregnancy

The Curious Climber Podcast: Chatting with Hazel and Mina

In this episode Mina (18 weeks pregnant at time of recording) chats to Stacy Sims about all things about training and exercise in pregnancy. Pregnancy can be a confusing time in one’s body and experiences of pregnancy also vary hugely. Stacy specialises in exercise physiology and human performance with a particular interest in female athletes through all life stages - one of which for many women will be pregnancy - so it's great to get her take on this tricky area. It's worth mentioning that neither of us are medically doctors and we are discussing medically uncomplicated pregnancies in this context - if you are unsure of anything, please seek advice from your doctor or healthcare provider. At the time of recording I (Mina) was 18 weeks pregnant....I’m now (at the time of publishing) 32 weeks pregnant and it’s interesting for me to notice what has changed and not changed since Stacy and I had this chat. I stopped doing pull ups of any sort (even assisted) around 20 weeks due to the doming of my abdominals and stopped finger boarding soon after for the same reason. But, I’m still climbing with no issues, lifting some weights, doing finger holds by my side, and plenty of walking! Oh and endless pelvic floor exercises.... That won’t be the same for everyone of course and could change again rapidly for me too - each week now it feels like my body is different and has different likes/dislikes and needs. Constantly adapting and modifying. To be honest, I think mental flexibility has got to be a core theme of pregnancy in athletes.
