Training Considerations for Trans Athletes

There is a frustrating dearth of information about what, if any, considerations to make when training trans athletes.

Most published research has been done with the intent of proving or disproving the idea that trans people have an athletic advantage over cis athletes. Very little attention has been paid to recreational fitness in trans people.

Adam Fisher has put together a primer on working with trans athletes which outlines the basics of how hormone levels affect athletic performance.
