This may sound like fantasyland, but there is one secret weapon men have hidden in their bodies just waiting to unleash these effects.

This is the powerful hormone of testosterone.

What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone. This anabolic hormone is responsible for many functions in both men and women but affects men more.

Men and women contain both testosterone and estrogen. However, men contain less estrogen and more testosterone, and women contain more estrogen and less testosterone.

Therefore, it is more essential for men to exploit. Testosterone is responsible for numerous functions including facial and body hair growth, a deep voice, muscle development, and a strong libido.

There are plenty of men out there that are suffering from low testosterone. This is detrimental to society as a whole because it affects the everyday performance of men.

Men will have less energy, drive, and motivation going through their day so will produce below-par results. They will not be as prowess at work, in relationships and won’t feel as dominant.

As we age, testosterone[1] naturally starts to decline. However, with the right lifestyle, these effects are minimal.

Lifestyle Approaches to Increase Testosterone

You can increase testosterone in numerous ways. One robust way to increase testosterone is exercise.

Especially resistance training. Resistance training has been shown to substantially increase testosterone.

Not to mention, lifting weights will improve your body composition. It increases your muscle tone and reduces body fat.

As the Asian Journal of Andrology states: “Overweight and obese men have much lower testosterone than their fit counterpart. Moderate obesity predominantly decreases total testosterone due to insulin resistance-associated reductions in sex hormone-binding globulin. More severe obesity is additionally associated with reductions in free testosterone levels due to suppression of the HPT axis”

Resistance Training

When resistance training, make sure to include big compound movements that target big muscle groups such as squats and pullups. These tend to lead to the greatest production of testosterone.

Nutrition

Nutrition also plays a vital role in increasing your testosterone. You want to eat a balanced diet consisting of healthy food. Noteworthy, it is important to make sure you are still consuming carbs.

I know low-carb diets are popular these days, but studies connect consuming carbohydrates[2] to more testosterone.

Some powerful micronutrients and herbs that you can consume to boost your testosterone are magnesium, zinc, boron, and ashwagandha.

Most humans need to eat a balanced diet rich in whole foods, fruits, and vegetables.

They should be consuming plenty of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and eating proportionate macronutrients (proteins, carbs, and fats).

You’ll have to play around with it depending on the person but try and stick within the ballpark of consuming 10-30% of your caloric intake from protein, 20-30% from fats and 45-60% from carbohydrates.

Vitamin D

Another way to improve your testosterone is to get outside! Being outside will give your body exposure to sunlight. Sunlight contains vitamin D which supports testosterone production.

Also, being outside is a lot of fun and provides many other benefits for the human body. Did you know that being outside reduces anxiety and depression?

Sleep

The most powerful ingredient to increase your testosterone is sleep. Sleep is crucial for testosterone. If you are not getting adequate sleep, then you will have less energy, a weaker immune system, and less testosterone.

Also, sleep is vital for your body to perform optimally. If you want to increase your testosterone, immune system, energy levels and just flat out feel amazing, then make sure you are getting enough shut-eye.

Most research supports that the average human needs 7-8 hours[3] of a restful night’s sleep.

Testosterone Hack

One tip to increase testosterone is to masturbate less. A Chinese study claims that men who went 7 days without ejaculation had a 145.7% spike in testosterone on the seventh day.

That’s massive! Speaking of masturbating, having sex shows a spike in testosterone in countless studies. The key here is to find a healthy balance between sex and abstinence.

The Power Behind Testosterone

Once you include all of these lifestyle changes into your regimen you will start seeing noticeable results immediately.

You will have much more energy running through your body and will be able to utilize this to accomplish all of your endeavors.

Take a minute and actually visualize everything that you will be able to accomplish once unlocking this powerful force.

It is life-changing, and the number one most important hormone men should be utilizing. It is sad to ponder on all the poor men out there that are struggling because of low testosterone.

As before mentioned, testosterone is an extremely potent anabolic hormone. This hormone is responsible for many bodily functions.

Imagine getting in better shape, getting better sleep, being more attractive to women, crushing your career goals and downright feeling amazing! Your quality of life would be much better.

Increasing testosterone naturally is worth the effort. The benefits you will receive are night and day. You’ll become a totally different person: the best version of yourself.

Take advantage of this potent hormone floating in your body and use it to conquer life!
