Testosterone in the Body
If there’s one thing I think we can all agree on, it’s that testosterone is critical for help you build muscle. As a matter of fact, it’s how to build serious muscle seriously. This hormone is absolutely responsible for muscle growth.
It enables you to:
Gain more strength;
Ramp up protein synthesis;
Recover faster from the gym;
Show more aggression when you attack the weights.
Who doesn’t want more of that, right?
You simply cannot build muscle as well as you should if you aren’t maximizing your testosterone.
So how can you make sure you are?
Wit the top 10 tips below of course!
Have sex. Seriously though. It will help elevate your testosterone.
Eat more healthy fat. cholesterol is actually necessary for optimal testosterone production.
Get quality sleep. Lack of sleep has a direct connection with testosterone release.
Lift heavy weights and use shorter rest periods. Bonus – this will also help you boost your growth hormone levels.
Stay away from steady-state cardio (endurance training).
Do NOT overtrain. Less is more.
Get control over your stress levels. Your mind counts.
Get some natural sunlight each day or supplement with vitamin D.
Don’t attempt a very low carb diet plan.
Make peace with not being sub 8% body fat. Getting too lean can mess with testosterone levels (this isn’t an excuse to get fat though mate, everything over 15% body-fat and you’re also messing with your testosterone) Ideal is about 10% body-fat.
If you aren’t currently doing everything you can to maximize your testosterone levels, you’re leaving results on the table.
