Isn’t this probably the 4th thread on the subject?
Before posting this initial thread, I did an advanced swearch on this topic. I came up with tons of articles on diet/supplement based ways of increasing T-levels but my question involves what traing program is best for increaing testosterone.
The only article I found was by CW who states three days/week with compound/olympic lifts. While I respect CW, I just wanted some other opinions. [/quote]
I totally respect that you want other’s opinions. Its just that after years of education and observation, I find it, well…a little silly for authors to constantly write that certain routines and dietary practices are going to SIGNIFICANTLY increase T levels.
It is NOT significant. The male testicles produce 7 to 10 mg of T per day. What is a diet or training routine going to do to enhance this? If someone could give me a good, logical answer, I’d listen. Do you know how much T (drug form) one has to use to even see effects.
Most users I know had to use a minimum of 250 mg per week, minimum, to see significant results. Thats 250 mg compared to a normal healthy male’s level of 50 to 70 mg/week.
Obviously, for normal functioning one should have the diet at 15 to 30% fat. I see 10% or lower as likely to cause problems with skin, hair, nails, and so on, not just with T, essential fatty acid deficiency.
Since I have been hypogonadal for the past 7 years, I have both an endocrinologist and an andrologist (urologist with fellowship in andrology). These people deal with T issues EVERYDAY and both have stated that programs or diets will not significantly increase T.
