I wanted to put up a list of things that naturally affect Testosterone levels for everyone to add to, take away from, or merely comment on. As many of us are always looking for ways to maximize our gains, I felt that this would be a useful list to compile and to have as part of our files.

2)Stress (which increases Cortisol)
Things That Naturally Increase Testosterone
1)Keeping dietary fat intake greater than 20% of total calories
2)Multiple Sets, in a rep range of 8-12 (this certainly can, and should, be debated), working large muscle groups with heavy weights and with compound movements. (With that being said, I really think whatever lifting protocol we ascribe to, it all boils down to that elusive pricipal known as intensity).
Additions, subtractions and/or comments?
