RTE has launched a new video series, pushing exercises for females, in which the broadcaster presents the latest scientific evidence for the importance of a woman’s physical condition.
The video series was launched last week, and is aimed at helping women understand the health benefits of pushing, a form of exercise that includes a variety of activities that include pushing, kneeing, and jumping.
“There’s an important and often overlooked aspect of a good female athlete that’s often overlooked,” RTE Sport executive producer and sport presenter Anna Phelan told RTE’s Sportweek podcast.
The series, which has featured over 30 episodes so far, will be available to subscribers in the coming weeks. “
What they’re really good at is putting their body weight on the ground and pushing themselves to the limits.”

RTE said the series aimed to highlight the importance placed on a woman athlete’s fitness and wellbeing and help her improve her overall health.
The programme will also be available on YouTube.
“The fact that women are able to perform pushing exercises and perform those types of movements are some of the reasons why we need to support the fitness of all our female athletes,” Phelans said.
The series will also feature interviews with leading experts, and features an exclusive interview with former Olympic gold medallist Mary Lou Retton, who is currently running the New Zealand Paralympic team.
Retton has been on the RTE Women’s Centre team since her first competition in the sport in 2009.
“When I heard that Mary Lou had passed away I was absolutely devastated,” Retton said.
“I couldn’t believe it and the whole team and all of us were absolutely devastated.
Retton was awarded a bronze medal in the 2012 London Olympics and an MBE in 2013 for her performance in the marathon. “
It was very difficult for me to be away from my family and to spend time with my sister and mother and to be in isolation for three weeks.”
Retton was awarded a bronze medal in the 2012 London Olympics and an MBE in 2013 for her performance in the marathon.
Retson also won the world championship in the 100 metres in 2012 and won the gold medal in 2014.
Rettington, along with her husband, has been involved in the New Plymouth Marathon for the last three years.
Retston said the strength and conditioning coach she had in her life was helping her with her push-up and squatting.
“She’s helped me with my pushing exercises,” Retson said.
She said she was excited to have an opportunity to do some push-ups with her coach.
“This is something that I’ve been working on since I was 12, but I had never experienced it before,” Rettson said.
Rettsons training has been focused on improving her core strength and mobility.
Rettons trainer, Steve McBride, said that the strength coach and the strength specialist he worked with helped her train with the strength trainer to improve her push ups.
“He helps with pushing up and squats,” McBride said.
Phelann said that RTE had been working with other organisations to support female athletes to improve their physical condition, and to improve performance.
“We are looking at everything from sports medicine, we’re looking at nutritional advice, we are looking to see if there’s a specific intervention that we can do,” she said.
Rte is also launching a Women’s Sports and Fitness Fund to help young women improve their fitness.
“A lot of these young women are doing really well.
We know that young women can improve and grow in the strength, conditioning, and strength-and-conditioning that they do,” Pharan said.
