SSH Seminar Series: The Impact of Resistance Training on Wellbeing in Trans Males
Presented by Dr. Melanie Adams, Human Performance & Movement Sciences: A number of trans men have documented their experiences with exercise on social media, but no best practices exist and little research has been done with trans individuals in an exercise setting. Dr. Adams had the opportunity to train three trans male clients of different ages and stages of transition last summer. Her talk will explore the impact of resistance training on their physical and mental wellbeing, the rigid gender binary that exists in fitness, and ideas for more inclusive exercise spaces.
