#HERMoJo - Menstruation be a SmartHER athlete with @eis2win

12:00 - SmartHER: Female Athlete Health @ the EIS

13:00

SmartHER: Female Athlete Health @ the English Institute of Sport is supported by WSNet's HerMoJo programme
 

Emma Ross and Richard Burden of the EIS Physiology team speak about the work they are doing around female athlete health to encourage athletes, coaches and support staff to open up the conversation and consider female physiology and psychology in training, recovery, nutrition and the coaching environment, in order to improve the health and performance outcomes for female athletes.

Work around your period - when you are training regularly be aware that exercise is good but the type and timing are important. You might want to track your cycle on a smart phone APP. This can help you plan training/diet and have a better understanding of what’s happening.

High oestrogen - rising levels of the hormone oestrogen in the first half of your cycle help energise you and can help you feel ready to train hard. As oestrogen levels increase, some experts suggest that this is good time to do strength and resistance training. Eating carbohydrates
and proteins are particularly important as these provide energy and help with recovery.

Second half of your cycle - as the hormone progesterone kicks in, and then towards the end of your period, levels of both progesterone and oestrogen fall. You might begin to feel a little sluggish. Some experts say this is the time to focus more on endurance and reduce the intensity of your training. Your body is thought to use fats more at this time to provide energy, so try and get some good healthy fats into your diet.

ACTIVE Cheshire supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women more ACTIVE!

ACTIVE Cheshire & The Royal Society for Public Health are working closely to use diet and activity to build healthier communities.  This video shows how local engagement through simple locations such as hair salons can form a hub to develop community public health knowledge.

RSPH research explores how businesses on the high street can impact the health of the public and includes league tables ranking the 'unhealthiest' high streets across London and the UK. The report also includes a range of measures to make high streets more health promoting, including:

  • Local authorities to be given greater planning powers to prevent the proliferation of betting shops, payday lenders and fast food outlets
  • Public health criteria to be a condition of licensing for all types of business
  • Mandatory food hygiene ratings linked to calorie and nutrition labelling for fast food outlets
  • A limit of 5% of each type of business on a high street in order to avoid oversaturation and provide affordable choice
  • Legislation to enable local councils to set their own differential business rates to encourage healthier outlets and discourage those that are detrimental to health.

#HERMoJo Four Post-Pregnancy core exercises .@kimmy_fitness

KimmyFitness supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women, more ACTIVE

Welcome to Kimmyfitness. My world of my work combined with my life= mummy fitness. You will find lots of workout videos that you can safely do through out your pregnancy and post pregnancy too. There are step by step workout videos and short clips of workouts you can do. Please feel free to comment, share and subscribe!

Here are 4 Post pregnancy core exercises with options.
You can do these exercises before your 6 weeks post birth check to help start strengthening and rebuilding your core. After birth our core is very weak and requires specific training to help rebuild and repair in the correct way. These are 4 exercises that can help, however you need to be cautious and concentrate whilst doing them. Think about your breathe and engaging in your abdominals(which feels very different at this stage however you will feel and notice the change) PLEASE DO NOT ignore any abnormal pain! And do let your midwife know you have started core repair work!

Do be careful training #postpregnancy because our body still continues to have the relaxin hormone in, which makes our bodies very flexible and our joints quite loose. This is why I would advise no heavy lifting within the first few months especially if you are new to exercise! You know your body so please go with the options that are given if you need to! Remember we have all started from the beginning

In the last two exercises feel free to place your foot down if you need too - then aim to keep your foot off the ground through the exercise. Balance work is so amazing for your tummy! 

If you are ready to start my MummyFitness postpregnancy 6 month exercise program please get in touch; 
my mummyfitness@gmail.com All mummies are welcome.

Promote your 'Women get ACTIVE' and 'sports-nudge' videos on ACTiV8TV 

WSNet has set up ACTiV8TV as part of the #ACTIV8afriend programme.  Once a month we encourage women & girls to get ACTIVE together.  #ACTIV8afriend is a 'roll out' of @WomenSportsWeek. A FREE, non-proprietary, community-programme designed to get more women, more ACTIVE and help clubs/classes get more members by making an 'offer' once a month to those who bring a friend.

YOUR women's Sport/Fit TV Channel - on-line from 1st-8th of every month

We run ACTiV8TVbetween 1st-8th of each month in the build up to the ACTIV8th of EVERY month.  So many clubs and organisations have set up their own promotional videos. These have flowed out of programmes such as #LIKEaGIRL & #ThisGIRLCan. But how many of these videos get watched - often on YouTube but can’t be found.  We search You Tube for suitable coaching/training or motivational videos and schedule them ever hour from the FIRST of the month until the ACTIV8th.  There's a 'snapshot' below of recent 'broadcast' schedules.

You can help us to help you get more women more ACTIVE by sending your training, diet or ACTIVE promotional video ready for 'broadcast' next month.

WSNet doesn’t charge for this service but we do reserve the right to reject programmes without reason.

13:30 Australian Diamonds take a new look at role models - could be you!

10:15

The Australian Diamonds and Samsung support #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women more ACTIVE!

As proud partners of netball, Samsung are challenging Australians to rethink who we hold up as inspirational role models by shining a light on our Diamonds. 



Across the board, girls & women have very few positive role models to aspire to, and yet there are so many inspiring examples amongst us. The Australian Diamonds, our World Champion national netball team, are testament to this. They embody qualities worth celebrating: talent, determination, resilience, loyalty, humility, and passion.



Samsung want to challenge Australians to stop and think about how important positive role models are in shaping society for the better. And to help us elevate role models who represent brighter possibilities for tomorrow.

#HERMoJo - Exhausted Athlete? Female Athlete Triad with .@WSNet & .@FemaleTriad

12:00 - The Female Athlete Triad meets HERMoJo!

13:00

The Female Athlete Triad is a syndrome of three interrelated conditions that female athletes & players often expereince.

They exist on a continuum of severity, including: Energy Deficiency with or without Disordered Eating, Menstrual Disturbances/Amenorrhea, Bone Loss/Osteoporosis.

Read more about Female Athlete Triad - extract from MoJoManuals - helping teen girls enjoy competitive sport by overcoming some of the many issues they face!

The advice we offer in the Feeling Good zone – bone health, healthy food, rehydration, the menstrual cycle and smart training – is there to  help you train well and support you being a young woman as well as an athlete. We want you to be on top form and avoid habits which can lead to lack of energy, tiredness, disrupted periods - and even fragile bones. Any combination of disordered eating, menstrual
problems and bone health in female athletes (plus any associated energy deficit/lowered performance) is often described as the ‘Female Athlete Triad’.

Food and water to fuel your exercise - Eating the right foods at the right times will help avoid ‘Female Athlete Triad’ – other signs to look out  for are: feeling overly tired from excessive training, over exercising or decreasing the amount of food you eat. Abnormal eating habits restricting foods, skipping meals, eating disorders) can also result F.A.T. symptoms – causing low energy levels. These can disrupt your period and increase risk of injury. So, eat and drink smart to train smart! 

Keep track of your menstrual cycle - By using a period tracker app (or tracking the start and end dates of you period in a diary or calendar) you will be able to work out your menstrual pattern. Irregular or multiple missed periods can impact bone health by disrupting oestrogen levels. If you have missed periods or your periods haven’t started by the time you are 15 OR if you began breast development more than three years ago and haven’t started your periods, it’s worth arranging a check-up just to make sure everything is OK.

Bone growth – your bones are growing fast in the early teens so, again a healthy diet that includes calcium (see page 32), sensible training and period tracking are all essential to keep them strong.
