Recent research reveals that training regimens for female athletes, traditionally based on men's routines, may be doing more harm than good. Dr. Kate Ackerman, Director of the Female Athlete Program at Boston Children's Hospital discusses her work with reframing training protocols for optimal performance for women. Former gymnast Dr. Mara Smith helps athletes build mental skills enabling them to handle whatever comes their way. She has become a pioneer in the concept of Mental Strength and Conditioning. These two leaders bring us up-to-date on the critical importance and value of mind/body balance required to succeed on and off the playing field. Their conversation will be moderated by Bethany Bump, Health Reporter for the Times Union.
