This Week's episode is a repeat of the most popular episode from 2018 and boy, what an episode it was.
My favourite Bad-Ass Rockstar Vagina Doctor, Dr. Anita Mitra is back for a third episode of the Podcast to talk in-depth on the topic of Exercise-Induced Amenorrhea. In the Episode Anita discusses: - The stages of the Menstrual Cycle, what amenorrhea is and why it occurs. - Is exercise-induced amenorrhea actually a symptom of too much exercise or is too much stress in general the real culprit? - The fallacies of the current research on exercise-induced amenorrhea and its relevance and reliability in regards to how it applies to the general population. - When pursuing certain "extreme" goals the menstrual cycle is often lost and seen as normal or acceptable. But is it really acceptable and what are the risks that come with amenorrhea. - How the menstrual cycle effects training both positively and negatively and the importance of tracking your cycle. - How to manipulate your training strategically to maximise your progress by actually working with the positive and negative effects of your cycle.
