    Description

    The purpose of the workshop is to present the beneficial role of exercise in promoting the health of women during reproductive and non-reproductive periods (menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and postmenopause). The biological and functional adaptations of women during exercise will be discussed. In addition, the contribution of exercise for the prevention and treatment of diseases in the female population, such as breast cancer, polycystic ovary syndrome and gestational diabetes, will be highlighted. At the same time, theory will be put into practice: the implementation of exercise programs during pregnancy and childbirth will be demonstrated.
