7. Log Some Serious Zzzz’s
Few things are going to be more important to natural testosterone release than your sleep habits.
Sleep is the primary time the body restores itself, being sure that every system is working in proper balance.
Neglect sleep – especially those deep sleep stages called REM stages and you’ll be feeling the impacts on both how you feel as well as your workout session the next day.
Getting assistance from a sleep aid and fat burner will definitely help you get the most out of your sleep, with many more benefits.
Longer sleepers chronically produce more testosterone levels than those who try and get by on just 5-6 hours per night. Set a bed time and take it seriously.
8. Stop The Sugar
Sugar is well publicized as one of the worst foods that you can be putting into your body and there’s no mistake about that.
Not only does it set you up for weight gain, it’ll also zap your natural testosterone release.
Each time you eat a sugar laden food, you can expect a near immediate drop to your testosterone levels.
9. Beat The Clock During Your Workouts
Another important thing to remember as you go about your strength training routine is to avoid letting that workout drag-on.
Whether it drags on because you’re too busy chatting up the receptionist (which indicates you aren’t training near the intensity to get a testosterone release in the first place) or you’re simply pumping out set after set, neither situation will work in your favor.
The best testosterone workouts are short but intense. If they go on longer than about 45 minutes, it’s time for a change. Beyond this point, your level of cortisol will begin to rise, putting you in a catabolic rather than anabolic state.
This is again in direct opposition of what you want at this point.
