After around the age of 40, men will typically begin to experience a natural decline in testosterone and erectile function, commonly known as Andropause. While it is a natural part of aging, there is a way to improve sexual health, regardless of your age. Pinnacle Men’s Health is here to highlight some exercise tips that are known to increase testosterone levels in some men with low testosterone (low-t).
Short, intense workouts – Studies have found that men who incorporate strength training into their workout regime experience less low-t symptoms. When creating a weight training routine, try performing less repetitions and slightly more weight.
Reduce long-distance running – In a comparison between long-distance runners and people who were less active, a study also found that a majority of the runners had increased cortisol levels (associated with stress) and low-t symptoms.
Rest up – Working out too much is dangerous for anyone, so do not forget to let your body and mind rest between workout days. Allowing yourself to enjoy some recovery time can drastically help with emotional complications, like mood swings, caused by low-t.
