Strength & Conditioning for women

53% of women are "inactive" and burn less than 50% of their calorie budget that a person should burn through physical activity, daily, as against 44% of men. The average calorie burn budget of Indian men is 476 calories per day vs. women’s 374 calories per day, out of which men burn 55 per cent (262) while women burn just 44 per cent (165).

“Females are the most beautiful, gorgeous creatures in the whole world. And we are gorgeous no matter what size we are.” - Alicia Keys

 

While this quote is true, there is one thing which we feel is ignored a lot nowadays. When it comes to size, everyone starts talking about “Body Positivity” which is good but behind that, there is one thing that suffers a lot is “Women’s health”. Everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin till the time your health parameters are doing well.

 

In a recent survey by Physical activity levels of Indians by HealthifyMe, 53% of women are “inactive” and burn less than 50% of their calorie budget that a person should burn through physical activity, daily, as against 44% of men.

 

The average calorie burn budget of Indian men is 476 calories per day vs. women’s 374 calories per day, out of which men burn 55 per cent (262) while women burn just 44 per cent (165).

 

What are the health issues faced by women due to inactivity and unhealthy food habits?

 

Almost all women face health issues in their life. However, the majority of Indian women are in the habit of ignoring their health issues. The complications are faced by them in different age groups from adolescence to pregnancy and menopause. Psychological causes may include work-related stress and anxiety.

Common health issues faced by Indian women:

  1. Menstrual issue - They can start from menarche till they achieve menopause.

  2. Fertility issues due to advanced age and lifestyle.

  3. Obesity - Metabolic disturbances or hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovarian disease have become increasingly similar along with sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy eating options.

  4. Osteoporosis - Low calcium intake leads to diminished bone density, early bone loss and an increased risk of fractures.

  5. Diabetes - which increases the risk of heart disease by about 4 times in women but only 2 times in men.

How does Exercise play a role in all these?

 

Let’s take a look at each one of them:

  1. Some studies estimate as many as 90% of younger women have severe period pain. Exercise relieves cramps because it helps release beta-endorphins which are internal opioids, your own “human morphine”. It produces analgesia (pain relief) and helps to burn the prostaglandins- chemicals released during menstruation that cause muscle contractions - much faster.

  2. Being in the healthy weight range reduces the risk of infertility and improves the chance of conceiving spontaneously and with assisted reproductive technology (ART). Exercise is a key component of managing weight.

  3. Obesity is an excessive fat accumulation in adipose tissues and is defined by a body mass index of 30kg/m2 and above. If one pays attention to one’s nutritional needs and exercise, obesity can be reversed.

  4. Studies show that strength training over a period of time can help prevent bone loss and may even help build new bone. Maintaining strong muscles through weight training helps to keep up your balance and coordination - a critical element in preventing falls, which can lead to osteoporosis related fractures.

  5. If you have diabetes or are in the pre-diabetic stage, being active can make your body more sensitive to insulin, which helps manage your diabetes. Physical activity also helps control blood sugar levels and lowers your risk of heart disease and nerve damage.

Based on this hypothesis we have come up with a product S&C for Women that helps women fight these problems.
