When working with female athletes, understanding the menstrual cycle & associated hormonal fluctuations is KEY to train to full potential.
Recent research has also resulted in change & update in criteria from ‘female athlete triad’ to the comprehensive RED-S model - which identifies more athletes stratified as ‘at risk’ and allows for improved prevention/management of condition. This webinar helps translate this research into clinical practice - understand how to screen your athletes, look for physical flags, and how to manage safe return to sport for those women considered at risk.
At the completion of the Menstrual Cycle & RED-S webinar you will:
* Understand the menstrual cycle: what it is, how it’s regulated and why it is important to consider when working with adolescent female athletes
* Identify key physical and biopsychosocial flags of RED-S
* Evaluate the impact of RED-S
* Feel confident in the management of adolescent female athletes
