    When you talk about "working out" and hair loss - the only people who are going to accelerate any hair loss are those who are lifting heavy and bulking to gain size and therefore strength. And by bulking I do not mean taking supplements that boost testosterone unnaturally.

    How much acceleration? Who knows, person dependent.

    Your testosterone production goes up and as a result so does your free testosterone. DHT isn't some magic number that says "I will take 89 Free Testosterones please" - it takes some percent that doesn't change.
    So simply lifting heavy weights and building bulk can wotsen alopecia? Wow, I did not know that.

    I think its as person dependent as any other change you put your body through.

    But I will add/modify that I think the acceleration of loss is far more likely and noticable if you are boosting testosterone beyond what your body is naturally is capable of.
