5 Bit Harder Ways to Increase Testosterone Levels
I often write about those simple and easy ways to boost testosterone, and quite frankly boosting testosterone naturally is not that hard once you know what you’re doing.
But for the guys who like a bit of challenge, here’s a list of bit harder ways to boost testosterone levels.
Some of these ways are really hard, some just need you to have great amounts of will power.
And even though these are hard, they’re not impossible for sure.
Here’s the list:
1. Get Rich
Being rich is the ultimate goal for most people.
Sure it sounds cool to say that money wouldn’t matter and that it would have no role in happiness, but at the end of the day that’s just a huge load of bullshit.
Because money equals freedom, and freedom equals happiness.
Guess what else that extra cash will do?
Answer: It’ll skyrocket your testosterone levels.
Seriously, it does.
a) Stress is one of the biggest testosterone killers. That’s because it elevates the stress hormone cortisol, which literally destroys your testosterone molecules. It’s not a big secret that money issues are the number #1 stressor in this world, but if you’re rich, you can completely eliminate that stressor. That would obviously reduce your cortisol levels and increase your testosterone production.
b) According to this study, young future traders noticed a significant increase in their testosterone levels on the days when they made above average profits. One future trader in the group got a 6 day streak of above average profits, and ended up having 78% more testosterone in his blood.
c) When you’re rich you don’t have to work for anyone, but you can hire people to work for you. This basically means that you’re the boss. The alpha male, and the leader. And it’s not a secret that the alpha male who is at the top of the food chain, always has higher testosterone and lower cortisol levels than the guys busting their asses of below him. This occurrence is seen in both, humans and animals.
d) If you go from “rags to riches”, you basically have achieved the ultimate success, literally winning the game of life. We already know that winning increases testosterone levels, and that the feeling of achievement will fuel the production of dopamine which stimulates testosterone production.
As you can see, making a lot of money is a great way to boost your natural testosterone levels, but it sure ain’t easy, and majority of people will never get rich. Still that doesn’t change the fact that being rich is a way to get more out of your testosterone production.
NOTE: You don’t have to make millions to achieve financial freedom, read this article to understand what I’m talking about.
2. Get Low body Fat Percentage
Getting “fit” may be easy, but rocking a low fat percentage truly isn’t.
But why would low fat percentage increase testosterone?
Answer: The more fat mass you have, the more aromatase enzyme your body produces. Aromatase enzyme is nasty little enzyme that literally converts your testosterone molecules into the female hormone estrogen.
Not only that, but the increased estrogen will also signal the brain to slow down the production of sex hormones. This occurence will furthermore decrease testosterone.
The obvious solution to overcoming this is extremely simple, yet extremely hard to reach…
…You just have to rock a low fat percentage.
Based on my own experiences, the optimal seems to be around 8-10%. Go lower than that and you can’t eat enough to maintain good amount of muscle mass and healthy testosterone production.
Everything above the 8-10% range will elevate aromatase enzyme in a fashion of: more fat = more estrogen and lower testosterone.
But beware that maintaining a 8-10% bodyfat is not an easy task for sure, but it’s worth it.
NOTE: The guy on the image is probably at around 10%. That’s about the point where your abs will really pop out and stay visible even without flexing.
3. Do Whatever You Want to Do in Life
This is a cliche for sure. You can’t just tell people that they should do what they want because “there’s no way some people could”.
But at the end of the day, that’s what you need to do to be truly happy.
You have to do everything you humanly can to reach your goals. That’s what life is all about. It’s simple, yet millions of people never understand the true meaning.
Some people want to have a family, others want to have their own bussiness, some want to travel the world, others just want to have sex with beautiful girls, some yearn for freedom and some live for the money.
Whatever is it that you truly want, the ultimate goal of why you do what you do. Figure it out and then work your ass of to get there.
A life without a real purpose is a wasted one.
But what does that have to do with testosterone?
Answer: If you’re a man, pretty much everything.
Because a man needs to do what he wants. He needs to be the boss of himself in order to reap the hormonal rewards.
Doing what you truly want releases endorphines, it reduces cortisol levels, it increases serotonin production, it boosts your dopamine, and much much more.
All of the right things for a boost in testosterone.
4. Get to the top of the Social Ladder
Pretty much everything in life has its own “social ladder”, a pecking order.
In work, there’s the boss, and then employees from highest to the lowest rank.
In army there’s a similar situation.
In every single group of friends there’s also an invisible social ladder. Someone is always the “leader”.
But no matter what the situation is, the higher you are in that ladder, the higher your testosterone levels will be.
Because in the world of both animals and humans, the leading alpha male always has the highest testosterone levels. That’s because he’s the boss.
The guy at the bottom of the ladder has the lowest T. And then there’s the guys in between.
In a nutshell: Get as high as you can in that social ladder, even though it may be an “invisible” one. Because at the end of the day, humans are not all equal (I’m not talking about race here). Some are winners, some are losers.
5. Never let yourself Get Sedentary
One of the untold reasons for multiple diseases and low testosterone, is as simple as the fact that humans in this modern society often end up living a sedentary lifestyle.
The thing is that you need some muscle stimulation and an active lifestyle to keep your hypothalamus and pituiary gland sending those messages to your balls to produce more testosterone.
If you’re living a sedentary lifestyle, then your brain knows that you don’t need any testosterone, because you’re not doing anything that would “create a need” for it.
A great example of this is the fact that in western medicine, it’s seen as an inevidable fact that our testosterone levels will slowly decline yearly after we turn 30.
However the decline is not really inevidable.
In primitive rural populations, older men have just as much testosterone in their bloodstream as the younger guys do.
Because they don’t become sedentary. They don’t spend their evenings in front of a TV with a bag of chips and a six-pack of beer.
That’s one of the secrets to longevity and lifelong hormonal health. Just never get sedentary. Always remain active, and your hormones will too.
The truth is that this is not even a hard way to boost testosterone really. The only thing that makes it hard is the fact that we are accoustomed to the fact that there’s nothing wrong living a sedentary lifestyle. When truly there is.
Those were the 5 hard ways to boost testosterone levels.
If some of you guys can complete all the “tasks” in this list, I tip my hat to you. Because that would make you one high T man for sure.
If you’re not even close to obtaining a single point in this article. My advice is to close this article and get to work.
