Dr. Jason Karp: EP Exclusive on Female Athletes and His Book ‘Running for Women’

July 16, 2013

Every female athlete out there needs to give this one a listen (and it won’t hurt for the men to listen in either). We are joined by Dr. Jason Karp, co-author of Running For Women, who’s also a coach and athlete. Dr. Karp is extremely knowledgeable on female physiology and women in athletics, and on this show we’ll share some of the great things you can find in the book, as well as talk in detail about female athletes and their special qualities and needs — from the basics of the menstrual cycle to female hormones and metabolism to planning training and racing based on your cycle, the female athlete triad, and much more.
