Exercise physiology information

There is an interesting article in NY Times.

Just as there is an increasing body of evidence that physiological & pharmacological considerations are very different depending on who you are (examples include different blood pressure treatments or Hb A1c levels by race and variations in heart disease presentation and treatment by gender), it seems - not surprisingly - that physiological differences also account for differences during exercise between men and women.

Most studies on exercise physiology have been done only w/ male subjects. This article discusses how when a study was done w/ women subjects the results were totally different.

I bring this to folks' attention because I think women who train should be aware research findings may not apply to us... read published studies carefully.

Re: Exercise physiology information

Hi Janet,

Interesting article; thanks. It reminded me of this article, by a professional woman mountain biker, about research showing different reactions to stress and danger by men and women:

http://singletrack.competitor.com/20...-the-bike_6764

I think this has implications for how we experience practice and interpret each other's behavior, too. (BTW, I'm certain there is physical as well as psychological overlap between populations of women and men on these vairables. To me, the issue isn't just about misperception between genders, but misperception generally.)

Best

David Henderson
