Episode 93. Dr. Stacy Sims - How Your Period Enhances Your Performance!

Dr. Stacy Sims, VIS Expert, a performance physiologist and researcher specializing in women athletes, shares the science behind periods and performance. As a former runner, rower, and cyclist, Stacy dove into studying movement and sports sciences at Purdue University. In her Master’s program, Stacy researched sex differences and overtraining in women athletes. As a professional, Stacy has directed research programs at Stanford, AUT University, and the University of Waikato that focus on women athlete health and performance. In today’s episode, Stacy brings her expertise and experiences as an athlete to share her research and work about menstrual cycles, training, and nutrition. We also discuss the underrepresentation of women in scientific studies, the misconceptions about women’s physiology, and the myths relating to our periods. “If we are looking at any point in the menstrual cycle, you can come and bring your A-game.” - Dr. Stacy Sims.
