Testosterone is the driving hormone for men and the most important one, arguably.
It’s important to maintain higher levels of testosterone by changing various aspects of your life that might be holding you back.
Things like apathy, lethargy and low energy levels tend to be telltale signs of lower testosterone levels in men.
Inability to concentrate, no ambition, low stamina and a lower sex drive.
Brain fog, all these things are signs that you need to take your testosterone in check.
Of course there could be other deficiencies, not just testosterone, but you should be able to discern the symptoms yourself.
So let’s go into detail about how to optimize testosterone production in your body while maintaining an active lifestyle.
First and foremost, you’re going to have to have plenty of sexy time with your woman. This is just a fact, no reason to discuss it but it had to be mentioned.
Secondly, you’re going to consume plenty of fats and cholesterol:
Eggs, avocado, oils, meat, poultry and fish will be your best friends henceforth. Consume as much as you’d like, as often as you’d like.
Also maintain a healthy amount of carbs and protein in your diet as these will also help in the production of testosterone and the building of muscle.
Third, you will be lifting heavy shit.
And you’re going to be focusing on the manliest of exercises:
Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Press.
Base your workouts around these 3 movements and you will be one sexy beast.
Oozing primal sexuality through your pores. One thing I like to do is, pair a compound barbell exercise with a dumbbell exercise right after.
Bench Press 3×5
Dumbbell Press 3×6-8
Bulgarian Split Squats 3×6-8
Military Press 3×5
Seated Dumbbell Press 3×6-8
Incline Bench Press 3×6-8
Dumbbell Row 3×6-8
Bicep Curls 3×6-8
This workout will produce a great amount of strength with an emphasis on the chest muscles, you can shift it around to meet your needs.
If you want a bigger back, make that a priority workout (that means at the start of the workout when you’re fresh).
If you want bigger legs, prioritize the leg muscles. So on and so forth.
The question always begging:
How many reps do I need?
Not many. I’d say keep it within the 4 to 6 rep range, and the occasional 8-10 just to tire out the muscle and deplete it of its glycogen stores.
Although not necessary, it’s very helpful.
A little extra glycogen can add some size to your muscle and make you appear bigger than you really are, although too much of it might make you look kinda puffy.
This is why when you wake up in the morning, you look skinny and depleted. Especially if you do things like intermittent fasting.
And when you eat and fill-up, your muscles bulge out and you look stronger. Because they get filled up with glycogen and you grow an inch or two.
