Learn how tracking your cycle can help you in your training

Today we welcome award winning journalist and life long athlete Christine Yu to talk about the menstrual cycle tracking craze that we have seen in recent years. Christine will walk you through the different phases of the menstrual cycle, some of the physiological changes that happen week to week and why these fluctuations can effect our exercise. She also dives into some myths about cycle tracking and why it’s not as simple as giving general guidelines like, high intensity around ovulation and stretching during luteal. At the heart of this episode is the importance of cycle tracking as a way to get to your own own body, your unique rhythms, symptoms, strengths and challenges so you can better support yourself through your ever changing menstrual cycle.


Christine Yu is a life-long athlete and award-winning journalist who writes about sports, science, and health. Her interest in the intersection between sports science and women athletes led her to her first book Up to Speed: The Groundbreaking Science of Women Athletes, which disentails myth and gender bias from real science in order to address the huge research gap in supporting women athletes to excel at every stage of life. Ultimately this is a book that is not just a road map for women and girls but an examination of the systemic injustices in sports and science that affect all people in the hope of uncovering ways to make the system more equitable for everyone. She lives in Brooklyn, NY with her family.
