La plupart des produits de nutrition et des plans d'entraînement sont conçus pour les hommes, donc peu adaptés aux caractéristiques des femmes sportives.
Ce livre contient :
- des conseils nutritionnels personnalisés pour toutes les étapes de l'entraînement et de la récupération (course à pied, cyclisme, sports de plein air, triathlons...), - des programmes nutritionnels et des exercices de renforcement réunis dans un plan complet : développez des muscles là où vous en avez le plus besoin, renforcez les os et augmentez votre puissance et l'endurance, - des chapitres consacrés à rester tonique et active pendant la grossesse et la ménopause.
Dr. Sims realizes that female athletes are different than male athletes and you cant set your race schedule around your monthly cycle. ROAR will help every athlete understand what is happening to her body and what the best nutritional strategy is to perform at her very best.--Evie Stevens, Olympian, professional road cyclist, and current womens UCI Hour record holder Women are not small men. Stop eating and training like one. Because most nutrition products and training plans are designed for men, its no wonder that so many female athletes struggle to reach their full potential. ROAR is a comprehensive, physiology-based nutrition and training guide specifically designed for active women. This book teaches you everything you need to know to adapt your nutrition, hydration, and training to your unique physiology so you can work with, rather than against, your female physiology. Exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Stacy T. Sims, PhD, shows you how to be your own biohacker to achieve optimum athletic performance. Complete with goal-specific meal plans and nutrient-packed recipes to optimize body composition, ROAR contains personalized nutrition advice for all stages of training and recovery. Customizable meal plans and strengthening exercises come together in a comprehensive plan to build a rock-solid fitness foundation as you build lean muscle where you need it most, strengthen bone, and boost power and endurance. Because womens physiology changes over time, entire chapters are devoted to staying strong and active through pregnancy and menopause. No matter what your sport is--running, cycling, field sports, triathlons--this book will empower you with the nutrition and fitness knowledge you need to be in the healthiest, fittest, strongest shape of your life.
