You have heard me talk about this before, but today I wanted to dive in a little deeper and tell you just how important testosterone is to your body.
Many experts believe that testosterone is the single most important hormone in your entire body. And I am one of those believers.
The reason is simply because this powerful hormone plays a huge part in what allows you to stay strong, lean, and healthy.
Here is how fitness expert John Romaniello sums it up:
“We’re not going to beat around the bush with this one: Testosterone is what makes you a man. It’s what allows you to build muscle and melt fat. It’s what makes you attractive to women, what powers your sex drive, and what helps you recover from workouts. It’s part of your genetics, and it’s a driving force in your health, your wealth, your energy, and your lifespan.”
(Note: Although this quote is aimed towards men, everything John said is still very relevant for optimizing hormonal balance in women as well.)
That is a pretty powerful statement.
Here’s the thing, naturally increasing your testosterone is not all that complicated. Sure it takes work, but when done properly you can be back at full force in no time.
Here are the top three ways that you can start to increase your testosterone levels naturally and start living a better, happier, and more energized life. (Note: In a future post, we will dive more into numbers one and two. Today we will be focusing on number 3).
1. Diet. High fat, high protein. Later this week, you will learn about the Ron Swanson Breakfast Special.
2. Strength Train. Lifting heaving things has never been this fun.
3. Sprint! High intensity workouts, such as sprints, have been shown to naturally boost testosterone and prevent it’s decline… Unlike prolonged workouts and cardio sessions which have no or a negative effect on testosterone levels.
The reasoning for this is pretty simple:
Elevating testosterone levels and keeping cortisol levels low go hand in hand. (remember, cortisol is the ‘fat storing hormone!’)
Short intense bursts of exercise, followed by a short rest and repeat, has shown to have no effect on cortisol while increasing testosterone.
Cortisol is the testosterone killer in our body which is why it is important to keep those levels low.
When cortisol levels are high, our body has a lot of trouble producing testosterone. In fact, it can halt and even drastically decrease testosterone levels.
So your step for today is to go out and perform some kind of high intensity workout. Sprints, HIIT, MRT, or even some Superhero Sprints.
Remember, today is the last day to grab this awesome program at the insane discount that it is at.
