Did you know that females of all ages and abilities face significant physical
challenges when training?
Females have a significantly higher micro trauma (non-contact) pain and injury rate. Why you ask? The overall issue is that
women have very poor pelvic stability and high quad. dominance. Females have weak, inhibited and most of the time nonexistent activation and strength in their glute. complex (Min., Med., Max.),
abductors and adductors (Yes, males have these problems but they are much more pronounced in females). Females are born with this poor structure and over time these areas become very dormant, but
doesn't stop is their every day movement, fitness and sports. This poor set up along with the female triad, Q angle and knee valgus combine to cause pain in the knee and lower back. This poor
structure forces the the body into quad. dominance. Over time the quads. become very strong, tight and overused. Basically the knees and low back are the two areas that end up being
the victim and are asked to do too much and it is just a matter of time before they give in.
Why should I worry about this if my goal is to lose weight?
Well... during the process described above the body spends a good amount of time protecting itself. While the body protects
itself the focus on calorie/fat burn becomes a secondary process and rendering a workout more counterproductive than productive.
Obviously there is much more to this story and I would love the opportunity to show
you through an in-depth assessmnet.
