Im 28 emaciated with fibro and the hormones levels of someone older than me.

Are there any blogs or books that target strength training for someone like me? Huge thanks

What do you mean by emaciated?

Estrogen? You are more likely to be estrogen dominant at your age, I would imagine.

Holly, I worked as a personal trainer for years with older women and a younger woman with fibro and my fave book is Strong Women Stay Young by Miriam Nelson, PhD.

That said, it may be worth focusing on balancing your hormones/addressing fibro symptoms first & do gentle walking as much as you can manage.

Have you had your D level tested? I would aim for a blood level of 60-80 ng/ml. Also Zinc & Magnesium supplementation may help, in addition to a whole-animal Paleo/Primal diet.
