The Best Testosterone Exercise for Men

This is mainly for men, but can be for women too if you can do the high intensity workout.

This exercise is going to help to get lean body mass.

To increase testosterone (women won’t increase this above the normal range), you must have good sleep and an intensity of exercise.

If you can’t sleep don’t bother trying to burn fat. Testosterone follows the path of growth hormone which is the main pathway to burning fat.

If you trigger one hormone than you will trigger the other.

The people that are getting up at 4am to exercise but not getting sleep won’t see huge fat burning.

 

That’s a big mistake, you will be better off getting more sleep and just a little bit of intense exercise.

 

I’m not talking about a spin bike, jogging or aerobics class. I’m talking about a full body activated very intensely and very quick.

You will have to have good adrenals to do these:
 

  • Rock Climbing

  • Burpees

  • Kick Boxing

  • Sprints

  • Boot camp or cross fit


You want the type of exercise that you can only do for 3 to 4 minutes at a time.

 

  • When you exercise you create some stress in your body then you stop and your body recovers.

  • You want to create a high stress intensity with short duration and then you want a long rest.
    This will stimulate our growth hormone all day long and really help you lose weight and get lean body mass.

  • When you are first starting out with exercise you want to walk and do yoga or things that are low intensity and add an intense exercise perhaps once a week.


As you go into more high intensity don’t do it very frequently.

For instance, I exercise every other day to allow my body to rest.


 

The 3 Things That Will Block Progress


1. Sleep – If a person is exercising regularly and not losing weight the first thing I ask is if they are losing weight.
 

2. Cortisol – The 2nd thing I check is their stress level because if their stress is really high they will create more fat through the hormone cortisol and won’t lose weight.
 

3. Insulin – If you are drinking wine or juice this all triggers your insulin.
 

One of my favorite workouts is chopping wood.

It works all parts of your body like the upper body, abdomen and your oblique which is the side of your stomach.

You can do this for half an hour. If you are just starting you can do wood chopping about once a week.
