Sport and exercise based research in sportswomen has not kept pace with the exponential rise in participation. This means that performance, training, nutrition guidelines are largely based on research in men.
It would be naïve to assume that all research in men can be directly applied to women, given the anatomical, physiological and endocrinological differences between the sexes. As such, sportswomen will benefit from sex-specific research and guidelines, which consider the effects of women’s physiology, such as the menstrual cycle.
