Details

Research has shown that testosterone increases muscle mass, which enables males to gain muscle mass easier than females. However, potential differences between the way endogenous testosterone and exogenous testosterone will impact the physiological changes during strength training remains unexplored. My research looks at the effects of exogenous testosterone on muscle mass gain among transgender males who have begun hormone replacement therapy. Understanding how hormone replacement therapy affects muscle mass is important in helping transgender individuals find the body they desire.
