This probably sounds like the least appealing of ways to increase testosterone naturally!
That being said, it brings a wealth of benefits like increased alertness, stronger immune system & a boosted mood on top of boosting testosterone.
As far as increased testosterone production is concerned, a cold shower is effective due to the testicles performing at their most efficient when they are at a cooler temperature and hot water can actually disrupt testicle production.
So needless to say, efficiently operating testicles mean they are producing more testosterone.
Yoga is a great way to reduce stress & as we covered above, when the body is stressed, it releases cortisol & cortisol inhibits testosterone production.
While other stress reduction techniques are effective due to reducing cortisol as well, I recommend Yoga.
It is good for increased fitness & the cobra pose (pictured) when held for 200 seconds increases testosterone levels by up to 33%.
Compound Weight Lifting
I think most people recognise weight lifting as one of the best ways to increase testosterone naturally.
What people seem to often miss, is that compound lifts (Think squats, deadlifts etc.) are the most effective form.
This is due to a couple of key things.
Compound lifts involve using multiple large muscle groups and the more muscle used during your lifts the more testosterone is released.
As you are using multiple large muscle groups, you are normally lifting higher weights; and the heavier the weights you lift, the larger the testosterone release is.
I’ve given you a couple of examples of compound lifts above; but you can check out more of the best weight lifting exercises that I recommend in this article below.
