In this HER Body™ episode Alex invites physique coach, Menno Henselmans, to discuss the differences he sees in working with women and men. He explains how he gauges a woman’s metabolic and carb tolerance when first starting them on a program. Both coaches additionally discuss the essential supplementation that most women should incorporate for optimal health, including dosages and importance of creatine when training.

Menno shares the most common psychological issues he sees in working specifically with women and how stress and sleep play a significant role in their progress.
