Ten Easy Ways To Increase Your Testosterone Naturally

Jul 21, 2008
Testosterone can be deemed as the "holy grail" of growing muscle, if there was one substance. The most important hormone for building muscle is testosterone; it determines how much muscle a person can build. These are only a tiny handful of the abounding spectacular benefits that come with increased testosterone levels: Increased muscle size and strength, decreased levels of "bad" cholesterol, increased sex drive and sexual endurance, improved mood and decreased body fat levels.

Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Well it is, and in this article I'm going to outline 10 simple steps to naturally raise your testosterone levels and achieve all of these incredible benefits. While these steps will not result in "steroid-like" muscle gains, they will definitely contribute to your overall bottomline results.

1) Utilize combination exercises as the foundation of your fitness routine. I'm talking about the basic, bread-and-butter lifts such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, rows, chin-ups, dips, lunges and military presses. Going to the gym and following the training that places your muscles under the largest quantity of pressure will compel your body to add to testosterone production.

2) Always put forth maximum exertion and intensity when preparing. You must be willing to really push your body to its physical limits if you hope to build muscle. The more stress you put on your muscles in the gym, the more testosterone your body will create.

3) It is necessary to train your legs with the same intensity with which you train your upper body. As you might already know, you can stimulate the growth in the back of your chest as well as arms, by doing some intense leg training. This is partly because your testosterone increases from your leg training.

4) Increase your EFA consumption. Necessary fatty acids that come from origins such as peanuts, avocadoes, healthy oils such as omega 3 fish oil and flax seed. To boost testosterone levels naturally, nothing beats olive or canola oil.

5) Eat less soy. Testosterone levels are negatively affected by elevated levels of estrogen, which can be caused by soy protein intake.

6) Limit the amount of alcohol you consume. Testosterone levels are significantly effected by the intake of alcohol. It is important to monitor how much alcohol you drink and avoid drinking binges.

7) Increase your dietary intake of cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, turnips, cabbage and brussel sprouts have all been shown to dramatically reduce estrogen levels, thereby raising testosterone.

8) Decrease the levels of stress you are under each day. The highly catabolic horomone cortisol causes testosterone levels to drop severly when you are stressed out.

9) Have more sex. Becoming sexually aroused increases oxytocin in the sytem which increases the production of endorphins and raises levels of testosterone.

10) Make sure to get adequate sleep every night. A lack of sleep contributes to cortisol production, and this will lower your testosterone levels.

To boost your muscle size and gain strength, implement these techniques regularly for a noticeable difference.
