Women are built differently than men. Following a training program that gets the best results for a man may not work all that well for a woman. There may be adjustments needed on volume, intensity, position, etc. But these slight adjustments can lead to better performance.

In today’s episode of RX’D Radio, Shallow and Jiunta are joined by Kayla as they talk about alterations in training based on gender differences. They share their own experiences and knowledge on the changes needed. The predisposition of a person, muscle fiber type, hormones, morphology, and receptivity are some things they discuss as they go over how each affects the movement and performance of a person. 

This episode offers valuable insights on the changes in programming that need to be made to enable women to perform better. If you want to level up your exercise programming, don't forget to subscribe and tune in to RX'D Radio!
