As the science of training the female athlete continues to evolve, future research will provide more advanced insights so that we can move beyond the question: Is training female athletes in the same manner as male athletes the best approach? This will require more focused research and education on female athletes and the issues/conditions that they face in order to help them optimize their performance and health.
