Tristar Coaching: Female specific physiology and training

Female athletes have their own unique training demands based on their unique physiology vs men. Our Tristar coaches have put together these key principals and descriptions based on your goals and training plan needs as a female athlete. Your coach will help guide your plan based on your daily, weekly and monthly needs.


Aerobic Capacity, "Why you shouldn't go to the top that heart rate zone❤️"

For the hard charging athlete, pushing to the top of the heart rate range may seem like you are doing a good thing and outperforming. When given a performance target to “hit” we find most of our athletes meet or exceed the plan. There is however the nature of physiology and it doesn’t “care” whether or not you want to perform at higher heart rate, pace or power; more problematic is that may not necessarily be what makes you faster.

Macro Nutrient Tips for endurance athletes

What are they? Three building blocks of your foods, proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and a 4th “water”…

What they do? Macro’s help us grow, repair, and give us energy.

  • Each macro has its own specific role and function in the body.

  • Carbs: Required highly for brain and day to day function. Think immediate energy and blood sugar needs. Walking, talking and basic immediate functions.

  • Fats are key for brain development and making hormones.

  • Fats: Highest calorie count per gram… requiring more energy to burn…. At the same time are helpful for increasing feelings of “satiation”.

  • Fats: Help to balance and stabilize energy / blood sugar levels.

  • Proteins: provide amino acids which are the building blocks of cells and cellular repair operations.

  • Water: Considered a “macro” because we consume it in large amounts and is essential to life. 80% of our bodies are water….

  • Micro Nutrients: These are vitamins and minerals required in smaller amounts for our diets.

  • Application - use MFP my fitness pal and Training peaks.

  • How to lose weight and balance energy with macros as an athlete
