EXERCISE AND SEX
It’s no secret that a higher testosterone level in males increases their sex drive. When a man’s testosterone level begins to fall as he ages or due to other health-related factors, the libido will usually start to diminish as well.
Sometimes, if the condition is severe enough, doctors may place certain men on testosterone replacement therapy to help bring their hormonal levels back up to normal. Once these levels have been increased again, libido should rise and the desire and sexual performance (sometimes low testosterone can contribute to erectile dysfunction) should improve as well.
When a man participates in heavy weight training, the levels of testosterone in his body will shoot up — assuming, of course, that this program is appropriate.
Do note that OVER-TRAINING is one of the biggest killers of testosterone, so taking this point too far and doing a very large volume of weight lifting will actually work against you and your testosterone levels.
Getting on a proper program where you are doing 8-10 sets maximum per workout will help to ensure that you aren’t going overboard. Additionally, be sure that when you are lifting, you are lifting heavy amounts so that you can perform 6-10 reps with difficulty. The weight is really the key here — just be sure you are still using proper form and not overdoing it.
Additionally, certain exercises will also affect your sex drive more than others will. To fully maximize testosterone, full squats are a must. These will use so many muscle fibers in the body that it would be hard not to get a good testosterone release because of them.
Make sure that Barbell curls , triceps extension etc are not the key to get the the out break of testos.
Aside from squats, all the other compound movement lifts will be your best allies when it comes to increasing your sex drive. These exercises include:
Incorporating these basic movements into your workout routine would be highly beneficial to your sex drive.July 25, 2016 at 9:39 am #20150
