How to Naturally Increase Testosterone?

I was wondering what you guys think are some of the best ways to increase testosterone naturally?

I know squats and deads help, and I’ve been eating all the foods that are supposed to help produce testosterone, but I’m wondering if there is something more that I can do?

There was a study done some time ago (can’t remember the one) that tested the testosterone levels of two crouds rooting for two different football teams. They found that the crouds testosterone was highest when the team they were rooting for was winning. They also found that your body produced alot more testosterone if you were anticipating a fight. I’m still looking for the study, and I’ll post a link to it when I find it. In the mean time, let me know what you guys think…

Thanks

being more pissed off in general seems to work well for me

tons of fat/cholesterol in my diet along with minimizing sources of estrogens (like plastics)

That was one of the studies I found, but there a a few more that go over the same points.

Mike Mahler has an entire book about it that he will send you if you email him.

The only reason people ask questions like this is because they have an inferiority complex, and they want to make difficult work easy.

Really?

Yea he mentioned that he was letting T-Nation readers look at his new ebook in the article discussion of his last article. He said he was looking for feedback.

at op I think maximizing T levels should be a secondary goal unless you are already at a pretty advanced level

Yeah… eat less plastic.

Good thing squats and deadlifts aren’t easy. OP, there’s actually no way out. You need to train heavy ass compound movements to really stimulate testosterone production.

That being said, ZMA would help boost testosterone, but it’s only effective if you train hard enough.

har har very funny

i mean use less plastic containers such as using them to microwave food

Flog yourself.

Seriously, the only thing I can think of besides the steps you are already taking would be some Alpha Male or TRIBEX. The right foods, squats and deads, adequate rest and maybe some ZMA and Alpha Male, should get you pumping out some hight T.

These minor temporary spikes have LITTLE effect on muscle growth and progress in the gym.

Yeah, I’m told that compound movements like squats and deads just spike up your T while your doing them, and for a short while post workout.

Something that seems to be skipped right over by most.

just wondering if any one could give any advice ive just turned 17 and have had bitch tits for as long as i can remember im 208 lbs with roughly 15 % body fat so not really fat. I have stupidly taken Alpha Male for a month when I was nearly 16 hoping it would get rid of them. Have just started taking animal pack which is supposed to just be a multi vit not test booster but my nips seem more saw then normal

i had some nice bitch tits/manboobs when i was 17 and around 240 lbs

then i hit the bench (various positions) and pec dec/flyes hard and instead of manboobs they turned into a nice chest

is it free?

To the guy with bitch tits, get to the doctor ASAP. Might still be able to be fixed with drugs.

The best way to naturally increase testosterone is to remove factors that lower it.

Stress, low amounts of sleep, booze, depression, low fat diets, and nutritional deficiencies will all lower test more than any supplement could it improve it.

When you see stories of athletes greatly raising their test levels after working with a new coach, it isn’t because they are taking a special herb, it is because the coach had them fix their lifestyle, and found any nutritional deficiencies they may have had.
