This is a special women's episode, and for the occasion, we've rounded up an all-female cast to talk about better biomechanics for the woman's body. Guest host, Elizabeth James, chats with Physical Therapist and Bike Fitter, Dr. Andrea Myers, and TriDot Coach Raya Usher about better understanding your body for your best performance. While each body is unique, there are some structural commonalities, such as wider hips, hyper-mobility, and torso v. leg length (to name a few) that should be taken into consideration for triathlon training. What injuries are females more susceptible to? Should additional factors be considered when getting a bike fit? How can women improve their movements to maximize their athletic potential? Listen now to learn all this and more!
