Some are born strong and others are made strong.

If you’re pre-T and reading this article, chances are you want to build some muscle. That’s awesome!
In my experience, the internet offers a lot of contradictory advice on training for anyone on the gender spectrum. That’s not awesome.
Two of the questions I get most frequently from other trans guys relate to:
I’m going to cover a myth and a truth about both in two articles. It’s myth-busting time!
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Last summer, I went on a fat loss diet and described my experience in three articles. In the post about my approach to nutrition for fat loss, I talked about the mistakes I made in the process.
At the time of writing, my intention was to document that experiment so I could go back to it one day and use what I learnt from it for myself and in my coaching practice.
Almost a year later today, my approach would be completely different. So I decided to write today’s article to share six mistakes you could make during a fat loss phase and how to avoid them.
Everything special about you came out of a bottle!
I came out to myself as transgender almost a year ago. I started having thoughts of the “Maybe this is the wrong body for me” kind when I was eleven, but I found excuses to dismiss them: “I’m not trans, I’m a butch lesbian”; “I’m not trans, I just like men’s clothes”; “I’m not trans, I just feel insecure because I don’t look like a man…”
Keeping the truth buried deep inside for over ten years felt like drowning. When I found the strength to accept who I am and breached the surface, I took in a huge breath of air to make up for the prolonged apnoea.
I decided I wanted everything right away: I threw away my (few) female clothes and began using a new name, researching HRT and top surgery, and lifting weights (in a more serious and structured way than before). That was June 2018.
Today, I choose to be a little more patient. I’m still not passing, still not on testosterone, still have gender dysphoria. So what’s changed?
