Trans Female Programming Considerations 05:57

Primary programming considerations for Trans Female Health include

  • Mitigating the long term effects of exogenous hormone therapy (increase in estrogen)
  • Mitigating the decline in testosterone production
  • Managing stress and inflammation
  • Potential loss of bone density

Expect to see a decrease in muscle size and strength and an increase and redistribution of bodyfat while the pelvis remains cis male. 

Variable 4Q Programming is recommended however higher intensities may need to be reduced to avoid unwanted hypertrophy.
