Does Stretching Release Testosterone?


Most testosterone is released in the first 27 minutes or of exercise and drops off sharply after 45 minutes.

Does anyone know if stretching signals the body to start releasing testosterone? Does anyone know if a 5 minute light cardio warm up releases testosterone.


Lahd a mercy.


I lol'd



Dammit, now I have to change my avatar again...


Exercise doesn't do jack shit for any significant increase in testosterone. Your average level is your average level, and that's it.


using the search function releases GH


Wrong. It increases cortisol levels because of undue stress caused by weeding out useful information.

Squatting down on the can interferes with my leg recovery.




rockula , you F'n rock .this had tears rollin down my eyes man , the op definatley lives next door to the faggot in the video.


no wonder my legs dont grow


I heard only isolation exercises done in the squat rack release test



That's Mr. Rogers...a man that helped half of this country grow up in the 70's and 80's and who is very well respected.

Take your name calling elsewhere. The man was married to a woman and did a shit load to help others.


Yes, those fanny packs you see bodybuilders wear are actually colostomy bags.


Yes....it all makes sense now....



Who doesn't know who Mr. Rogers is, anyway?


x2 on the respect for Mr. Rogers.

For the OP, a 5 minute cardio warmup will produce roughly the testosterone equivalent of a mild steroid cycle. To boost your testosterone further, studies have shown doing 5 minutes of cardio between each set in the weight room will produce the equivalent of a heavy androgen cycle, also potentially creating a third testicle.


Do people who make progress ask these questions? or even think about this stuff?


obviously, how would you make progress otherwise?


You know the third testicle thing is a damn lie...
