The younger athlete is changing constantly. He comes in and all his life is on his phone! The millennials have quick information, they have learned differently than some of us, everything is so high tech. You have to sit him down and sometimes you have to put the phone down, you have to listen and make it more of a real conversation. Some of that is challenging. Sometimes you need to say you and I are going to talk face-to-face, and we’re not going to text each other. You need to make sure they understand that interaction with their teammates and coaches is important. Efficient communication is a challenge all practitioners should take note of.
Lyle McDonald - The Women's Book - Could be used as a way to introduce the topic
Discuss the menstrual cycle - what is it? what are the phases?
Psychological Factors - cognitive performance, alertness
Menstrual Cycle and Strength
Menstrual Cycle and Aerobic Capacity/Endurance
Hormone Modification / ''The Pill'' / Weight Manipulation through use of the pill
Subjective - Very opinion based - bias??
How will this effect training? Will this one be easy to link back to S&C? Will I veer away from the subject at hand?
