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. Even in woman the androgens (combination of testosterone and oestrogen) plays equal role for wellbeing, muscular health, mental health, musculoskeletal and libido (sex drive).
Sometimes, if the condition is severe enough, doctors may place certain men on testos 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 testos can contribute to erectile dysfunction) should improve as well.
When a man participates in heavy weight training, the levels of testos in his body will shoot up. This shooting up of the testos is entirely physiological and normal. Even in woman the androgens also shoots up. The naturally produced hormone in man and woman due to strenuous exercise doesn’t leads to any of the side effect of any kind.
OVER-TRAINING is one of the biggest killers of testos, 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 testos, 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.
Even the cardios and high repetition training doesn’t help in boosting the testos. Make sure that Barbell curls , triceps extension etc are not the key to get the the outburst 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 increase your sex drive.
