Learn how to get the most from your training and fueling—and avoid the pitfalls of overtraining—with advice from a leading academic. 

Dr. Trent Stellingwerff is a leading academic in the field of endurance sports and energy availability—and in this episode of Fast Talk Femmes he talks in-depth about the importance of fueling your training as a foundation for success.

As Director of Performance Solutions at the Canadian Sports Institute and an experienced researcher who has published more than 120 peer reviewed papers, Stellingwerff has the perfect blend of academic knowledge and real-world insight. He is considered one of the top experts on RED-S (Relative Energy Deficiency in Sports).

In this episode he talks about some of his published work on topics such as overtraining syndrome and RED-S, periodized nutrition for athletes, patience during puberty, and nutrition interventions to optimize performance in middle distance runners.

Fast Talk Femmes podcast co-host Julie Young said: “My greatest takeaway from this show is that if you want to be in it for the long game and have a successful sporting career, don’t be afraid to fuel your training—and don’t be afraid to be patient with the training process.”
