If you know me, you would become at least a little bit suspicious of weight training causing hair lose. I lift weights often, and I lift very heavy weights. My whole body fitness is based on weight training.
I believe strongly in weight training. I can’t imagine my life without it and I haven’t missed my workout for 10 years now and yes, I am completely bald.
So, does that mean that weight training causes my hair loss?
The answer is no. In most cases hair loss is genetic. It’s caused by increase in the hormone Di Hidro Testosterone (DHT) in the mans body. It is not the typical Testosterone that young men have in abundance.
The regular Testosterone that is actually increased in the body by weight training doesn’t cause hair lose.
That is a Testosterone you really want. It is a good Testosterone, that is still keeping you young. For how long? It really depends on you and your lifestyle. But by not lifting weights, your body will create less and less over time.
Weight training helps to boost testosterone levels but doesn’t cause hair loss.
Men usually start loosing their hair in their early thirties. But some, like me, start loosing their hair in early twenties. And I can clearly remember not being involved in heavy weight training at that time. I was in a competitive rowing team and our preparation consisted of mainly intensive endurance training.
Now, you might thing, that maybe intensive endurance training can cause hair loss. But that would make every marathon runner and Tour the France cyclists bald. And there is really not that many of them bald.
Doing intensive weight training causes temporary increase in Testosterone, also called a hormone of youth. And Testosterone is not responsible for hair loss. Remember, Di Hidro Testosterone is.
Some studies show that Di Hidro Testosterone works in the opposite way than regular male hormone Testosterone does. It causes muscle loss, fat gain, cranky moods, depressions and other negative effects. That’s probably why you see so many out of shape, fat, unattractive bald men out there.
I would love to hope that I am not one of them. And intensive weight training is helping me to not join this group. I have a personal goal to keep six clearly visible bricks on my stomach until I am 60 or so.
If you are interested in your own six-pack abs, read six pack flat abs principles to guide you on your way to achieve hem. If you are already bald, you might as well be a bald guy with six pack abs, don’t you think?
Weight training will not only not cause your hair loss, but it will help you to avoid the negative side effects caused by higher levels of DHT Testosterone by boosting you regular Testosterone levels.
And that causes good musculature, tight waist, great sexual function, good moods, no depression and great mental drive. Kind of like a Vin Diesel look and performance. And what man would not want that?
If you are male and you are getting older, you are most probably getting balder. With age, you are loosing your hair, and quite frankly your manhood too. If you want to stop this, than realize that the only way to stop it (not hair loss, but manhood) is to hit the gym and lift heavy weights.
So stop worrying about weight lifting causing your hair loss and hit the gym to keep or regain your manhood. Even without hair you can still be attractive. But the only way to do it is to work hard. To work hard lifting heavy weights regularly.
Does weight training cause hair loss? No, no, no and no. Don’t worry about it anymore and lift those heavy weights regularly. You are most likely to worry about it, because, you want to be attractive guy. Guess what? The intesive weight trraining will do the trick. And you will become one even without the hair.
