Your Hormone Blueprint

Monitor capacity for training adaptations

Hormones moderate training adaptations. Training adaptations are the changes that happen to your body due to training that improve your performance.  Monitoring hormones may help to identify issues that may be standing between you and your goals.



Evaluate metabolic regulation

The thyroid regulates your body’s metabolism. Carefully regulated thyroid function enables energy output to increase or decrease as needed to facilitate muscle metabolism. Imbalances may cause fatigue or inefficient energy use that may interfere with energy levels and training adaptations.

Hormone Science

  • Monitor capacity for training adaptations

    Hormones are the chemical messengers in the body that alert your body to respond to training.

  • Monitor anabolic/catabolic balance

    Certain hormones are associated with protein synthesis or protein breakdown in your body. Monitoring specific hormones helps to provide insights that can assist you in determining whether your body is favoring muscle building or muscle breakdown.

  • Detect early signs of overtraining

    Overtraining results when performance plateaus or declines despite hard work during training. Monitoring changes in hormones may help determine if you can continue to push harder or if planned recovery may be a better strategy to reach your goals.

  • Evaluate capacity for glucose regulation

    Glucose is your body’s preferred energy source for most sports and is regulated by hormones. Imbalances in the primary hormone that regulates blood glucose may result in insufficient energy availability during training.

  • Evaluate thyroid function

    The thyroid regulates your body’s metabolism. Carefully regulated thyroid function enables energy output to increase or decrease as needed to facilitate muscle energy and recovery.
