Testosterone is a hormone, which plays a vital role in the human body. This hormone is widely known as the force behind the sex drive in males. It also helps in building muscles. Although a female body has approximately one-tenth of the amount of testosterone as that of men, it still plays a role in their development. Women also obtain an increased sex drive from testosterone. Unfortunately, in most of the cases, men’s testosterone levels start to dip once they reach their late 30s or early 40s. Interestingly, there are some exercises which help you to maintain the levels of testosterone.
How testosterone-building exercise works.
These exercises just need a significant amount of muscle mass. The amount of muscle mass used during an exercise has been always been an important factor in the release of testosterone. To maximize testosterone levels, prioritize the big lifts and practice total-body workout three days per week.
Let’s know exercise which improves testosterone levels in men.
The deadlift is one of the best exercises to improve the testosterone level in the body. To practice this exercise, stand with your feet hip width. Firstly, bend your back to reach down and grab the bar. After this pull the bar while the hips are fully extended and the bar is right in front of your thighs.
To practice this exercise, adjust bar at shoulder height on the rack. Then stand in front of the bar and grab it with hands at shoulder width and raise your elbows until your upper arms are parallel to the floor. With the arch in your lower back squat as low as you can.
To practice this exercise, lie on a bench and grab the bar just outside shoulder width. After this pull the bar out of the rack and lower it to your chest level while locking your elbows about 45 degrees to your sides. One the bar touches your body, push the bar to back up.
Grab the bar and let it hang in front of your thighs. Bend the hips torso until it’s nearly parallel to the floor. Just bend your knees a little bit so as to take the tension off your hamstrings. Later, squeeze your shoulder blades together and then pull the bar to your belly.
Adjust the seat of a shoulder press machine and grab the handles so your palms face each other. Press the handles overhead while making sure that your elbows track in a normal pressing path.
