January 23, 2009, Newsletter Issue #362: Training for Women Athletes

Tip of the Week

Women athletes suffer more injuries, especially to the knee, than men. Hormonal and biomechanical reasons have been proposed to explain this, but new research indicates lack of conditioning may be the key. Women typically do not have the same amount of experience with fitness and sports as men, because they have only recently been given encouragement and opportunity to participate.

Women athletes, no matter how talented, should work on general conditioning before getting heavily involved in their sport.
