4 Safe Methods Of Boosting Testosterone Levels
A low level of testosterone is a curse for any bodybuilder. Effects of a lower than average testosterone level includes weight gain, loss of muscle and lack of libido. Bodybuilders will also experience lack of strength resulting in poor performance and rapidly declining muscle growth.
An easy option may be to use performance enhancing drugs but this is proven to do more harm than good in the long run and in many cases, the harmful side effects of the drugs can be permanent.
However, there are 4 safe and highly effective ways you can improve your natural release of testosterone;
It may seem obvious but the more fat your body has, the more oestrogen your body produces. This offsets the production of testosterone, therefore the less testosterone your body will produce. By losing any excess weight you will immediately reduce the amount of oestrogen, but instead of crash-dieting which will actually prevent the body from producing testosterone. Seek medical advice and diet healthily and gradually, making sure to include important food groups but cutting out any unnecessary fats and getting sufficient exercise.
Intake More Monounsaturated Fat
Monounsaturated fats are ‘good fats’ and bodybuilders rely on these fats in their
diet to produce an adequate supply of testosterone. Even if you are trying to lose weight you need to make sure that 30% of the calories you do take in are from monounsaturated fats. Such fats consist of food such as olive oil, omega-3 fats, peanut butter, canola oil and fish.
Have More Sexual Activity
A study carried out in Austria for the Ludwig Boltzman Institute for Urban Ethology revealed that men, who engage in sexual activity more often, produce a greater testosterone level than those who have sex more infrequently. A great excuse if you ever needed one!
Lift Heavier Weights
To produce more testosterone, one of the safer ways to do this is to lift as heavy as you can manage. Lift weights that you can only do three sets of five reps, with just a minute rest period between each set and you will boost your testosterone levels. Other exercises you need to include more of in your workouts are squats, power cleans, bench presses, dead lifts and military presses.
You do need to ensure you have at least 24 hours rest between workouts so that your testosterone levels do not decline.
The use of natural based Testosterone boosters alongside these exercises are generally safe and in the case of a good product – highly effective. From our research and evaluations we have compiled a list of what we feel to be the top 3 testosterone boosters currently available to buy online.
