First, let’s talk about what testosterone is exactly. It is a hormone found in humans and other animals. It helps regulate a multitude of body functions. Some people choose to inject themselves with it in order to boost performance, or get more results. It also tends to decrease as we age, which then makes it more difficult to get results.
Some professionals say there aren’t any actions you can take and just have to accept that our testosterone levels will decrease over time. That you’ll just have to settle and accept that you’ll have diminishing results on your efforts, or that you just may never achieve them.
Well, I’m here today to tell you how and why that is wrong.
Why Should You Care About It?
Testosterone helps regulate things like bone mass, fat distribution, muscle size, strength, and much more. This means as a hormone it plays a huge role in our aesthetics (how good you look). So, having lower amounts of it can make it harder to see results. The converse is also true, having *more* of it could increase the results that you’ve been going after, or even help you break through a plateau.
How Can I Boost It?
The good news is that you can take action immediately to start boosting your testosterone production naturally!
The first thing I’d suggest doing is to start lifting weights. I’m not talking about 5-15lbs. I’m talking about some barbell stuff like squats, deadlifts, and bench presses or any of their variations.
Secondly, stress management and stress reduction! Increases in cortisol (which is a stress hormone), is accompanied by a decrease in testosterone. Decreases in testosterone can lead to a loss of achieved gains or even gains prevention.
There are a multitude of other steps that you can take to ensure that your testosterone levels don’t drop. BUT, the steps I just mentioned are two of the easiest and simplest that can be implemented immediately.
