Safer Ways Of Boosting Testosterone Levels
There is nothing more worrying to a bodybuilder than a rapid decline in their testosterone levels. Not only does low testosterone have negative effects on your sex drive it can contribute to weight gain and loss of muscle mass. They will also lose strength and will perform poorly with their weight training. Instead of resorting to drastic measures to boost your testosterone levels, follow these 4 tips to help your body release more of it’s own natural testosterone.
Shed The Pounds
The more you weigh, the more oestrogen your body produces and stores. The more oestrogen your body has, the less testosterone and vice versa. lighter, slimmer men will have a higher abundance of testosterone, while there is no need to starve yourself, this will just make the body stop producing testosterone. Instead, stick to a healthy, well-balanced and carefully planned diet coupled with your training efforts and you will see the excess fat melt away and your testosterone levels will be restored.
Concentrate On Weights
While bodybuilders all lift weights, the key here is to lift heavier weights than you are used to. Ones that you can only manage to do three sets of and five reps with just a minute rest period is the most effective way to boost your testosterone levels quickly.
Make sure you have at least 24 hours respite from these exercises, overworking the muscles can make your testosterone levels drop by 40%. Excellent exercises for building muscle and testosterone are power cleans, military presses, squats, dead lifts and squats.
Eat More Monounsaturated Fats
Although its important not to be overweight when trying to increase your testosterone levels, the body does need some ‘good’ fats in order to produce more testosterone. Monounsaturated fats are the healthiest way to produce testosterone, those who include these fats in their daily diet will produce more than those who don’t. Foods high in monounsaturated fats include Peanut butter, Olive oil and Fish.
Research shows that men who have regular sexual activity will produce more testosterone than those who have it less often, a study carried out by Ludwig Boltzman Institute For Urban Ethology in Austria revealed that men will release more testosterone when they are stimulated sexually on a frequent basis.
