Ep 35 | Physiotherapist Kayla Mulvogue | Understanding women’s physiology and training
Kayla Mulvogue is a physiotherapist, expert in women’s physiology and training, coach and mentor. She recently created an incredible course called Applied Women’s Physiology and Training which teaches women (and people who coach women) all about the unique considerations for optimizing women’s training, health, and fitness, including aspects of physiology, hormones, reproductive health, and much more.
In this episode Ashleigh and Kayla talk about key differences in women’s physiology about how and why we may want to train differently due to our hormones, physical structure, etc. They dive into details about why muscle contraction and tension matter more than how much weight you’re lifting; overrated exercises and what you can do instead to maximize your time in the gym; pelvic health and pelvic floor therapy and managing diastasis recti, and so much more.
