Transgender Fitness: Training Female to Male customers.

Bringing Compassion & cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care

Ashton Deroy Writes: Sedentary Female to Male Transgender persons ought to be a public health issue when going through Hormone Replacement therapy. Andro, DHEA, stanozolol, testosterone is an anabolic steroid. Beta-2 agonists can act as bronchodilators and increase heart rates, in addition to their mild androgenic effects.To mitigate the effects of this drug in Transgender Female to Male patients we need to enforce the fact that users of this drug need to get adequate weekly exercise to manage the effects on your body, to get desired results & to cope with aggression.

Exercise is healthcare

I love Transgender men from my family to my friends. However, the facts are the facts. A Transgender man on hormone replacement therapy needs to get adequate exercise. Cisgender people need 150 minutes of exercise a week. However, for Transgender men, I may encourage them to increase the exercise. For both desired body image and to quite frankly cope with possible roid rage from your hormone replacement drug.

Just like in the last blog I encourage Transgender female readers to try dance exercises to learn feminine expression. I will show Transgender Males exercises that I use to get in touch with my masculine side. As I have mentioned before on this blog I am a genderqueer writer who uses both masculine and feminine expressions. First is the abdominal assault link which will be in a clickable text format. Do not exceed an hour of exercise per day as a beginner!

For Transgender men I would have them do a lot of Strength training. To help them see more of the positive effects of their new chemical make up. Now, of course with strength training, I recommend doing a little core. With Strength, you can bulk up in the arms & bloat out in the middle, so I recommend doing core exercises sufficiently.

Now honestly, I wish I could say I encourage someone of steroids to workout less but the fact is after a while a burden may fall on you to live an active life. Definitely consult with your physician about how to approach this change as safely as possible. With Hormone replacement therapy a lot of the medicine is still improving to suit individual needs every day. To mitigate the effects of testosterone I can think of no better strategy than to integrate a fair amount of strength training into your daily routine to help handle the effects.

Personally, I do Strength training right before I go to see my boyfriend on weekends. It strengthens my arms, heightens my awareness & increases my energy for whatever is in store. It also has a key benefit of making me feel more comfortable in masculinity. I am not the most comfortable in masculinity but Strength definitely helps. It also helps my self-esteem that I am able to lift things some people can not lift. When I was at Giant Tiger on my recent placement with Keys Job Center? I was able to lift Banana crates the other staff could not by myself.

Transgender Fitness: How dance exercise helps with stereotypical feminine expression?

Ashton Deroy Writes: Hopefully this isn’t news for my readers but I identify as Gender Queer. I used to say in High School that the male gender was flexible enough for me to be feminine. Now I just identify as both masculine and feminine or in other words Gender Queer. Season 30 Episode 7 Werkin Mom Episode of the Simpsons, Homer Simpson says, “I guess these days it is okay for everyone to be everything.” Yeah, that sums up being genderqueer perfectly. Even though it is not as intellectual as one might want.

If I were training a Transgender Female client at a gym. I would recommend Zumba & Dance workouts. As far as learning & mastering forms of feminine expression. I can think of no better workout than dance for Transgender women to learn more feminine mannerisms. In fact, dance as a feminine expression can be traced back as a feminine expression as far as the Veiled dancers in 100 BC. From what I can gather from the artwork below the Veiled dancer was majestic & a form of performance artist for their time.

For me personally, dance exercise shows me what feminine moves I can do and which ones I can’t do. I have to keep my queer flame going as lively as possible. To me that isn’t going to be done with the butch workouts I do to tone my arms. I need a little loose expression, I need to shake my hips and move my feet. Also as an added bonus dance exercises have added a little bounce to my walk. This way I do not look as miserable when I am walking.

Besides dance, you may want to focus on workouts that shape particular areas of your body. I suggest mostly focussing on core & hips. Since many people born male didn’t grow up using a dance that worked from these areas of the body. They often don’t know how to do the feminine dancing from these movements outward. For me, it has been about 4 years of self-practicing dance and I have only now just finally gotten a little more flexibility in my hips.

Here are some more benefits of Dance exercise:

  1. Improved function of your heart & lungs
  2. Improving muscle tone & even strength
  3. Increased physical confidence
  4. Better social skills
  5. Improved balance
  6. Increased aerobic fitness
  7. Weight Management

According to Better Health 

I can’t say enough about the benefits of dance! I get giddy just thinking about how good it is for you. I think of dance as the spiritual equivalent of brushing your teeth. The best reason to dance is to nurture your own soul.

Now if you are not a Transgender female or even genderqueer, but you still are intrigued at the prospect of dance exercise. I still say go for it! The purpose of this article is to get people thinking about the types of recommendations we can make for the purpose of Transgender fitness. I also think my readers would be interested to know that I don’t just focus on learning the masculine movements of fighting. I also focus on learning the feminine movements of the art of dance.

No excuses readers, go out there & start dancing! 😀

Project Title: Bringing Compassion & Cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care. Re: Transgender Mtf Youth and the Sex Industry: Determinants and Risks

Bringing Compassion & cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care

Rudan Abstract

Ashton Deroy Writes:  As usual my ex Christopher Rudan has written a summary on an issue regarding Male to Female you and the sex industry. He has written this in a way that only a Observational Psychologist without any practical education on executing fixes would. This may be something consistent with his character as a Nihilist & atheist who graduated Queen’s University without an ounce of understanding for a practical education in understanding problems & then executing solutions. Since I am a Business Diploma graduate with a diploma in Communications and I do side research in creating a functional Socialist society. I will suggest practical solutions to the problem described in Christopher’s Published abstract. I will do this in the format of a proposal rather than the format of another pointless psychology paper. As someone whose education actually focused on Community Development and Sustainability I can propose solutions to said problems.

Project Title: Bringing Compassion & Cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care.

Project description:

I want to create reading materials such as pamphlets and online accessible reading materials to increase educational awareness for Transgender sex workers. We want to expand publicly accessible sexual health clinics much like you see with the health clinic in Quinte West called Belleville Quinte West Community Health Centre. Also we want to circulate positive Transgender healthcare communication information & if possible resources to expand accessibility to transition in Canada.  We also want to distribute information directed at sex workers to encourage safe sex practices for prevention of the spread of Sexual infections & disease.

Tone: We want to change the communicative tone in materials to have a more inclusive & understanding tone while using a message that prevents the spread of contagious disease. We also want to increase the competence of healthcare professionals while aiding with the Transgender Community as a whole. This may involve sharing with them details about Transgender Social culture, health facts on best use for hormone replacement therapy & information on how Transgender women get caught in the world of sex work. Also as important is teaching Transgender women how to get out of the world of Sex work.

Mediums: Social media, Information Pamphlets, Educational speakers, Purchasing Sexuality and gender Study papers & a Website information hub.

Proposed first locations: Quinte West Ontario , Kingston Ontario & Belleville Ontario.

Duration: I would ask for a 2 year commitment to funding this as a community development project.

Project Cost:  $25,000 , Also consider hiring a project administrator for $30,000 per year salary.
