is testosterone involved in glycogen utilization during resistance training

I was told awhile back that this guy who was testosterone deficient(he wore a testosterone patch) was"weaker because of his low T levels causing his body to be inefficient in getting glycogen to the woring muscle groups" he was performing a muscle endurance program of 30 reps per set and at about 15reps he shit the bed. I didn’t think that testosterone had anything to do with trasportation of glycogen in the working muscle…thanks for your response

It’s the cathecolamines and the glucagon that help to get glycogen. However, maybe testosterone has a little bit to do. I am going to ask one of my teacher. (I study in kinesiology)
