Does what you do in the gym have an impact on how you feel for the rest of your day too (and could that be optimized by syncing it with your cycle)? 

For the last 6 months, I’ve been programming a specific type of workout based on where I was in my cycle. And the results have been super interesting.

I’m all about optimizing health and performance - and using your cycle as another data point is tapping into a powerful fifth vital sign. 

If you don’t have a cycle and think that today’s episode isn’t for you - I promise you, it is. Especially if you have a spouse, partner, friend, or client who does have a cycle. This information will be helpful for you to better understand how to work with them!

On today’s episode, you’ll learn:

  • How hormones impact your performance
  • How to sync your workouts with your menstrual cycle,
  • And why you don’t want (or need!) to be doing high-intensity workouts every single day
