My Super Weird Way of Boosting T-Levels with Sports Betting
The internet has been quite saturated with “ways to increase testosterone levels naturally” kind of articles, and after writing more than 250 articles on the subject, I know for a fact that this blog has most of the scientifically proven tricks already covered.
Well, today I have you a special trick of mine that hasn’t been discussed before, is heavily backed-up by research, and is a lot of fun when implemented successfully. Though I have to warn you that even if it might sound easy, it’s not (there’s a change of it backfiring and actually lowering your T).
The weird trick? Sports betting, while also watching the games you have bet on. Weird much? Well, just read on:
Sports Betting and Testosterone
Ever since I was 12 years old, I have been a “sports bettor”. Being from Finland the hobby is relatively easy to start, since nearly all gas-stations, supermarkets, and kiosks have betting “stations” in them.
And now since smartphones and the internet have evolved, and live streaming has become a thing, I can hook up bets with my phone in just minutes, and watch me some MLB or NHL from my own couch…
…Which is great, since I have followed both leagues from a kid and I can easily make profit from them, which is crucial for this trick to work anyway.
So, what the hell does sports betting and watching the games have to do with testosterone production!?
- According to a human study from the University of Utah, men who watch their favorite sports team compete – and win – experience the same type of testosterone surges as the players themselves, whereas the losing sides actually ends up with lower testosterone levels. This study was done using soccer as an example, and the men watched the game via TV. The researchers point out that for these changes to occur, the win (or loss) has to be MEANINGLESS for the viewer.
- Unless the team you’re watching is from your home town, you can add “meaning” to the game with sports betting. And even if the team is your “own”, the end result will still become more meaningful if there’s money on the line. This should then make the surge (or drop) in hormones even more powerful.
- Making money itself, has been shown to increase testosterone levels. Take this study with young future traders as an example, the traders noticed significant increases 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.
So that’s my formula and “theory” about how sports betting and watching the games can be used to raise testosterone levels. Just to recap, it goes like this:
— Watch your choice of sport.
— Add money on the line to make the end result more meaningful.
— Get a rush of success when you actually earn profits from the match.
Now like I said in the beginning, this is definitely not easy, and it can backfire by actually having the opposite effect on your hormones. This is, if your team loses, and you lose your bet. Even if you were to use this trick and win for the majority of time, there are still times when you experience some losses. The key is to win more than you lose. Earn more than you spend.
In the world of sports betting, that’s the hard part 😉
