When faced with the issue of having low testosterone, you are faced with a couple of solutions. You hop on the sauce train and start riding those unnaturally high test level gains and leave humanity behind, or you can go the boring way and try to boost your testosterone naturally. Today we will cover the boring part and see what you can do to get those test levels back up again the old fashion way, by actually doing manly things.
Best Ways To Naturally Boost Your Testosterone
Strength training and weightlifting is the most common way of getting those test levels up. So if you are lacking in the testosterone department and are feeling a bit sluggish, hit the iron harder.
2. Chopping Wood
You have probably seen the Instagram picture claiming that chopping wood increases testosterone levels by almost 50 percent. Turns out that it’s actually quite true! Not only does it boost test levels, it boosts them higher than performing some high-intensity sports.
An hour of chopping down trees does more to raise your testosterone (48 percent) than an hour of doing sport (30.1 percent). Who would have thought that doing manly sh*t could actually make you more manly? So go to your local Walmart or hardware store, grab an ax and start chopping wood.
3. Lose Weight
Excessive body fat percentages can cause vein clogging, raised cholesterol levels, and other metabolism shenanigans that can mess with your hormones and slow down your testosterone production. With that in mind, saying that losing weight is a great way of raising your test levels should come as a no-brainer. So, if your summer bulk went a little bit too well, maybe you should consider speeding up the process with the cutting season.
4. Proper Diet
If you eat nothing but McDonalds and garbage foods, you’re feeding your body with trash and not giving it the much-needed nutrients that can raise your testosterone levels and even increase your libido. Be sure to include zinc-rich foods in your diet because zinc boosts testosterone.
5. Surround Yourself With Hot Women
Hanging out with hot chicks is an old evolutionary trick for a quick testosterone boost. Speaking with attractive women for no more than five minutes can boost your test levels up to 14 percent.
Men associate pretty women with doing the nasty and continuing their bloodline with offspring — it’s only logical that the body then starts boosting your test levels so that your man juice is at peak performance if things start escalating quickly.
6. No Stress
Stress can lead to weight gain, heart attacks, decreased libido, various mental problems and of course, testosterone level drop-off. Whenever you start feeling stressed out, calm the fudge down. Start breathing and deal with your problems in a controlled and calm manner. Stressing out won’t do you or your problems any better.
7. Skip Sugars
Processed foods are one of the worst modern day evils; they tickle the pleasure center in your brain, making you feel good but all they are doing is making you fat and miserable. Skip the candy bars, sugary drinks, and all that crap. It’s not doing you any good and processed sugars can seriously mess up your test levels.
Now before every vegetarian, vegan, animal lover, tree hugger and PETA supporter get extremely triggered, let’s all just take a deep breath and calm down for a second. Not all hunting is good, exterminating endangered species is a douche bag move and deserves judgment, but some game animals breed like crazy in the wild and need population control.
They basically eat everything in their sight; deer are known to eat bird eggs and other smaller animals. So yeah, before you go crying for Bambi, remember that he’s a dick too.
Now back to the topic of test boosting. In 2013, an interesting study was conducted on Bolivia’s indigenous people that live in the Amazon forest. It showed that their testosterone and cortisol levels spike each time they make a successful hunting trip.
