View Full Version : Does weight lifting cause hair loss?

I am working a lot. My weight trainer is bald. But he shaves his head.
If I work out a lot will the increase in testosterone increase my risk of hair loss?
Is there anything to offset that? Is it a myth?

Keep working out. It is more important to be healthy. If you are concerned have your testosterone and DHT levels checked. You can always consider taking a DHT blocker if your levels are to high. I really doubt that working out actually causes hair loss. Keep in mind that taking additional testosterone can cause increasing levels of testosterone and DHT leading to progression of hair loss.
