Week 2: The Late Follicular Phase
Hormones such as estrogen and testosterone continue to increase and peak by the end of the follicular phase, this means recovery may be enhanced and more rapid (1). Side note, this hormonal change may cause you to be feeling a bit sexy, so it’s a great time to don your fave leggings and get into it! In addition you are still successfully burning those carbohydrates for fuel so pushing the intensity up should feel good right about now. This phase is where you feel the most strong, energetic and robust. Longer more intense sessions and muscle building exercises (2,3) are more effective here. This is your time to shine!
We recommend these DediKate workouts during this phase:
Ignite, Boot Camp Blast, Sculpt, fast runs, long runs.
