Fitness Guidelines and Exercise Physiology: Addressing Men's Needs
From a physiologic viewpoint, it is evident that men and women have very different bodies. The reality is the majority of men are stronger and can build muscle mass more efficiently than women due to their elevated testosterone levels. In this webinar, misconceptions and problems specific to men’s fitness and the effects of this on their health will be discussed. An overview of the history of men in exercise culture will be presented, followed by new technology that will likely continue advancements in monitoring and assessing men’s fitness levels. From here, participants will review recent research evaluating men’s physical attributes and abilities. These findings will highlight the need for male-tailored nutrition, supplementation, and exercise.
