Question: Are there any natural testosterone boosters that could raise my levels without having to resort to drugs?
What about lifestyle choices?
Answer: Low testosterone is no fun.
It leads to less muscle, more body-fat, depression and, of course, the inability to get it up.
This is a recipe for a disastrous, unhealthy, lonely life.
Below are 15 Testosterone Boosting Lifestyle Tips:
1) Get 8-9 hours of sleep per night. Nothing will help boost testosterone production more than that. If you can’t sleep look into fixing that problem ASAP. One thing that has helped me is the Night Wave.
2) Get to bed by 10:30 or 11, at the latest, every night.
4) Minimize your stress levels (meditation can help out big time with this).
5) Avoid all processed foods.
6) Avoid all factory farmed animal products and non organic produce (the drugs and chemicals contained in these foods can negatively affect your hormone levels).
7) Compete (competition elevates testosterone levels).
8) Avoid all whey protein that isn’t made from grass fed cows that haven’t been treated with dangerous drugs or chemicals that will lower your testosterone. The best grass fed whey on the market, made from raw milk is One World Whey.
9) Keep your workout short and intense. Testosterone production starts to dip after about 45 minutes of intense training.
10) Focus on big compound lifts like snatches, dips, chins, pushups, squats and deadlifts.
11) Don’t train to failure. When you do so the adrenals get fried. When the adrenals are fried testosterone production drops.
12) Try T-Plus from Onnit.
13) Run sprints.
14) Don’t do a ton of medium to high intensity, long duration, steady state cardio. This will boost your cortisol levels. Stick with short duration, high intensity conditioning methods for the most part.
15) Have sex more often. Three times per week is ideal in most cases.
