Athlete Blood Test is a resource that has been crucial to my training and athletic longevity. Using the data provided, I have been able to catch signs of overtraining early and adjust accordingly. I’ve also been able to pinpoint specific nutritional needs for my body to optimize my recovery and adaptations. What is unique and powerful about Abt is that they consider the full picture of being a female athlete and provide information about the period. Paying attention to my period and considering how my training fits into that cycle has been a new and radical concept for me. I’m grateful to be working with an athletic resource that empowers a better understanding of what it means to be a woman.
