Exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Sims presents women with an enlightening guide to fueling and strengthening themselves for peak fitness. As a former athlete, Sims knows firsthand the dangers of following regimens designed for men; her maxim is “women are not small men.” In part one, Sims covers the basics of female physiology in easily comprehended terms, exploring topics such as body mass distribution and a woman’s capacity for cardio and endurance. She demystifies each phase of the menstrual cycle so that women can leverage the phase they’re in to their advantage; this section also includes a chapter on menopause. Part two focuses on how a woman builds weight, core strength, gut health, and strong bones, complete with how-to exercises and sample plans. Part three covers daily and sport-specific fueling, hydration, recovery, and handling extreme conditions. This book is a must for female athletes. (July)
