This latest episode of the Consummate Athlete with Researcher, Masters Student and Cross-Country Ski Coach Anneke Winegarden gives some great insights into the world of Sports Physiology and some perspectives specific to female athletes. Anneke also gives some great tips for those wanting to try cross-country skiing or improve their Nordic performance!
Actionable insights include:
- Tracking your period to get a sense of where you are in your cycle and how performance is affected by different phases of the cycle
- Getting further assessments if periods are being missed
- Working on single leg stance and balance to improve skiing (ie. in gym)
- Working on no-poles skiing frequently in warmups and workouts to enhance balance and glide.
