Why is this a "must read?"
1- If you are a male coach you will have a bunch of "wow, I didn't know that moments"
2- If you are a female coach you may find some points that can really help your female athletes.
I have to say that as a male coach I haven't given this much thought. Sadly, that is pretty typical.
This stat is staggering:
"44%–72% of women and 44% of elite female athletes still report experiencing exercise-induced breast discomfort."
85% are wearing improperly fitting sports bras.
I hesitated to post this so I don't appear "creepy" but that feeling is part of the problem, not part of the solution.
I can't imagine the number of women I have asked to run tempos, etc. who probably dreaded the thought.
Thanks to my friend Pat Van Galen for always making me think!
