#HERMoJo - Menstruation be a SmartHER athlete with @eis2win

12:00 - SmartHER: Female Athlete Health @ the EIS

12:00

SmartHER: Female Athlete Health @ the English Institute of Sport is supported by WSNet's HerMoJo programme
 

Emma Ross and Richard Burden of the EIS Physiology team speak about the work they are doing around female athlete health to encourage athletes, coaches and support staff to open up the conversation and consider female physiology and psychology in training, recovery, nutrition and the coaching environment, in order to improve the health and performance outcomes for female athletes.

Work around your period - when you are training regularly be aware that exercise is good but the type and timing are important. You might want to track your cycle on a smart phone APP. This can help you plan training/diet and have a better understanding of what’s happening.

High oestrogen - rising levels of the hormone oestrogen in the first half of your cycle help energise you and can help you feel ready to train hard. As oestrogen levels increase, some experts suggest that this is good time to do strength and resistance training. Eating carbohydrates
and proteins are particularly important as these provide energy and help with recovery.

Second half of your cycle - as the hormone progesterone kicks in, and then towards the end of your period, levels of both progesterone and oestrogen fall. You might begin to feel a little sluggish. Some experts say this is the time to focus more on endurance and reduce the intensity of your training. Your body is thought to use fats more at this time to provide energy, so try and get some good healthy fats into your diet.

Your Women's Sport & Fitness TV

Promote your 'Women get ACTIVE' and 'sports-nudge' videos on ACTiV8TV 

WSNet has set up ACTiV8TV as part of the #ACTIV8afriend programme.  Once a month we encourage women & girls to get ACTIVE together.  #ACTIV8afriend is a 'roll out' of @WomenSportsWeek. A FREE, non-proprietary, community-programme designed to get more women, more ACTIVE and help clubs/classes get more members by making an 'offer' once a month to those who bring a friend.

YOUR women's Sport/Fit TV Channel - on-line from 1st-8th of every month

We run ACTiV8TVbetween 1st-8th of each month in the build up to the ACTIV8th of EVERY month.  So many clubs and organisations have set up their own promotional videos. These have flowed out of programmes such as #LIKEaGIRL & #ThisGIRLCan. But how many of these videos get watched - often on YouTube but can’t be found.  We search You Tube for suitable coaching/training or motivational videos and schedule them ever hour from the FIRST of the month until the ACTIV8th.  There's a 'snapshot' below of recent 'broadcast' schedules.

You can help us to help you get more women more ACTIVE by sending your training, diet or ACTIVE promotional video ready for 'broadcast' next month.

WSNet doesn’t charge for this service but we do reserve the right to reject programmes without reason.

Promote your video on #ACTIV8TV. Send a link to jo.c@wsnet.co.uk, your Twitter @Handle and some info about your club/class.
