Birth control pills can lower muscle training improvementsAccording to a finding presented by exercise physiologist Chang Woock Lee and his colleagues at Texas A&M University at the Experimental Biology meeting in New Orleans, some female athletes could pay a big price of taking oral contraception by not deriving best results from resistance exercise.

Birth control pills were identified as a major suspect as to why some women are not able to garner the same advantages as other women from exercises like weight lifting or working against tension bands.

The physiologist said women taking oral contraceptives containing medium or highly androgenic progestins were able to attain less than a 0.5 percent gain in muscle mass over a period of 10 weeks.
