Exercise can help if you’ve low testosterone levels. But first, let me explain to you the biggest culprits behind low testosterone count. The complete cause behind depleting testosterone count varies from person to person. But below are some common reasons:
- Your age (Older men usually face low T-levels)
- Your lifestyle (This includes your diet and physical activity level)
- Medical conditions (If you’ve any diseases or health condition)
- Obesity (Being overweight and low testosterone count are directly related)
While age and medical conditions are something you cannot control, you can work on your lifestyle. You are doing the right track because you’re thinking about which exercises you can do to boost testosterone.
Well, let me tell you there is scientific data to back the efficacy of physical activities in boosting T-levels. Not only that, but it also correlates with heightened growth hormone levels and positive brain functions.
Top exercises you should do to boost testosterone levels are:
- Strength training
- High-Intensity Interval Training
And below are some tips you should take care of while doing these exercises:
- Aim to do full-body workouts instead of targeting just a single muscle group
- Experts suggest lifting weights two to three times per week for 30 to 45 minutes
- Try to lift heavyweights. It will work better than lifting light weights with many reps
- Have short rest periods during your workout
- Take advice from a trainer if you’ve never done weightlifting
Whatever you do, please don’t injure yourself and don’t overdo it. Overdoing the exercises can increase stress hormones, cortisol, and lower the production of testosterone.
Remember to take good care of your diet and overall lifestyle. It will not only increase testosterone but will also have many other benefits for your overall well-being.
Things To Remember
If you are young and your testosterone is already in a healthy range. Then there are no testosterone boosters of any kind that will deliver any meaningful effect. And yes, none that will provide any sort of anabolic or muscle-building effect. All over-the-counter testosterone boosters you might buy are total crap and scams. Don’t waste your money.
Here are some of following ways that can boost your testosterone.
Better Sleep Discipline
Always get 8 hours of sleep per night and cut out light pollution in your bedroom. Moreover, keep the room fresh, etc.
Cut out sugar and all the vegetable oils and polyunsaturated fatty acids (that means no fast food/junk food). You have to replace all that stuff with quality proteins and healthy fats. Especially, coconut oils, olive oils, grass-fed butter and grass-fed animal fats, avocado. You need a good amount of healthy fats and cholesterol in the diet for good Test production. Just keep in mind that you don’t want to go to hog wild on the ketogenic diet stuff, as deficient carb diets dampen test production.
Get Into A Power-Lifting or Power-Lifting Style Workout
Lift heavy weights on big compound exercises like deadlifts, squats, bench, overhead press, and power cleans, etc.
Eat Organic Food
Consider “eating clean.” Intake of organic foods is expensive and kind of a pain. But if you’re already eating healthy and you can afford it, going to organic and pasture-raised meats, eggs, dairy, and produce will help keep you away from nasty, potentially hormone-disrupting crap. If you can’t eat organic all of the time, don’t sweat it, but if it’s within your means, you should do it.
Red Light Therapy
Try red light therapy on your balls. Yes, that’s a weird thing to do, which is why it’s listed last. Do everything else on this list first. But here’s some evidence to show 660 nm red light can improve leading cell function and activity when displayed on your junk. Again, Google is your friend in this.
