January 26th, 2016

Q: I have read several articles on the internet which suggest that resistance training can accelerate male pattern baldness. Is there any truth in this?

A: Anything that raises androgen levels in your body can potentially accelerate hair loss. That said, I suggest that you should exercise as you normally would. As long as you don’t take drugs to enhance your workout, the effects should be minimal.
