Exercise Can Help with Issues of Low Testosterone
Exercise can help with issues of low Testosterone. Did you know that? It’s true. If you are a person that suffers from symptoms of low testosterone levels, a little physical activity can go a long way. We don’t even mean anything too strenuous.
What are symptoms of low testosterone you say? Well, if you’ve been saying to yourself, “I know if I get just ONE good night’s rest, I’ll feel like ‘myself’ again,” you probably have issues of depleting testosterone levels.
When your testosterone begins to decline it means you’re not producing sufficient amounts of the sex hormone your body needs, not only for sexual function but as well for emotional and physical health. They don’t tell us this part enough but, it’s equally as necessary to consider. This is where its so evident: Exercise can help with issues of low Testosterone and it needs to be immediately considered by someone who is “beginning” to feel the effects of it.
What can cause low Testosterone:
- An accident
- Physical Trauma
- Mental Trauma
- A dramatic loss
- Other health problems
- Other currently ingested medications
- Being overweight
A recent review article published in the journal Diabetes Care noted that men who were obese and had type 2 diabetes were also much more likely to have low testosterone levels. In addition, it seems that low testosterone and obesity are deeply intertwined, and low testosterone itself plays a role in advancing other conditions, such as heart disease. The best way to take control over these symptoms is to gain your health back by losing some weight.
A study published in the Journal of Andrology that involved 32 male subjects with low testosterone levels, whom also had type 2 diabetes, found that 52 weeks of a supervised diet and exercise program, along with a regimented testosterone replacement therapy, significantly improved testosterone levels. More to the point, even the gentlemen that were “NOT” on testosterone injections replacement therapy were found to naturally increase testosterone levels significantly after losing the weight. More strong evidence that exercise can help with issues of low Testosterone.
- It’s always best to try to naturally increase Testosterone levels before just jumping straight into some kind of a testosterone replacement program.
- There’s strong evidence that resistance training can trigger an increase in testosterone production.
- Decline in muscle mass
- Decline in strength
- Decline in stamina
- Decline in sex drive
- Sleep disruptions
All exercise can help with issues of low Testosterone but, there are specific exercises that will focus on aiding symptoms of Low-T.
The following exercises are great examples:
- Lift Weights: Weights and resistance training will do the most to naturally increase your testosterone levels.
- Even just a little cardio helps: a lot of us would rather lift weights than run, but cardio can’t be discounted. Specifically when the focus is weight loss and cardiovascular health. Just because you are young now does not mean you’ll be young tomorrow. DON’T IGNORE YOUR HEART. It NEVER ignores you your whole life. Cardio does have an impact on testosterone levels as well.
- Work with a professional: it may seem weird at first but trainers are amazing. If you have never had one, interview a few. Remember, it’s your money so, only work with whom makes you comfortable but, when you find that person, your life will never be the same. Tell them you have low T issues and they will structure the proper protocol to assist you with your low testosterone needs while catering to your health, understanding the hindrances of low testosterone. This is the best option.
Please remember, though, exercise, although vital for improving low testosterone issues and improving your overall health, isn’t the only answer to low T issues.
