Fitness Guidelines and Exercise Physiology: Addressing Women's Needs
There exist distinct differences in men’s and women’s physiology that have direct impacts on fitness and exercise capacity. Historically, women’s fitness has been poorly addressed, resulting in several misconceptions, stereotypes, and adverse health consequences. This webinar will provide an overview of the history of women in fitness culture, followed by a glance at future changes for women in exercise settings and sports. Recently published research on women’s exercise science will be presented, highlighting female physiologic capabilities. Lastly, female-tailored recommendations for nutrition, supplementation, and exercise will be emphasized.
