Abstract

Sex differences in exercise training adaptations are still a largely unexplored field of study. There are well-known differences between men and women in terms of their average baseline fitness, such as larger muscle mass and higher cardiorespiratory fitness in men compared to women. Trained women may have a higher performance level than untrained men, but at the top end of the physical training and performance curve, i.e., where athletes are, men exhibit a higher prevalence and amplitude of sinus bradycardia and other electrophysiological changes. This chapter will explore whether men and women respond differently to a standardized training stimulus when sex differences at baseline are taken into account. The components of training that are key to the large adaptations observed in elite athletes are also reviewed.
