Most of the time I see the debate between the powerlifters and those interested in hypertrophy. But my goal actually leans towards something a little different: I primarialy want to maximize testosterone (and maybe growth hormone while I?m at it). I?m 45 and T is the Elixir of Life.
I know that all of this overlaps and powerlifting and hypertrophy can be married to T-levels. But, that said, isn?t the goal of maximizing testosterone different? What if your goal is to maximum testosterone and you don't care if you have to do a triathlon? dead lift a Toyota? do OVT until you almost drop dead?
And that leads to my question: what are the way(s) that you can maximize testosterone? From the research that I have read, these are some concepts that would seem to work:
- High intensity training of almost any sort
- The Olympic lifts involving multiple muscle groups
I would appreciate anyone?s knowledge of the subject especially with regards to current research because so much is happening in the field.
