Testosterone is a pivotal hormone, especially in men. It is necessary for muscle strength, and it is required for optimum cognitive functioning and overall health. Testosterone begins to decline gradually in men, beginning on average at age 30.
However, testosterone levels in the United States have declined from generation to generation. Your testosterone levels may be lower than your father’s at the same age. If you’ve been feeling lethargic, have trouble concentrating, or have noticed other negative effects in your day-to-day life, from losing hair to trouble losing weight, you may benefit from boosting your testosterone levels. Here’s how.
Increase Physical Activity
The importance of exercise and physical activity is stressed to us from a young age. However, when we’re adults, our lives may have gotten too busy to implement a consistent exercise routine.
Exercise is not just beneficial for overall health but specifically has been shown to increase testosterone. However, not all exercise has the same testosterone-increasing effect. Resistance training that increases strength is the ideal exercise method to increase testosterone.
Exercise alone demonstrates an increase in testosterone levels and can further aid the boost by helping mitigate factors that otherwise dampen testosterone levels. Men who are obese are 2.4 times more likely to have low testosterone than those who aren’t.
Increasing your physical activity may give you the testosterone boost you need. However, if your levels are low enough, exercise alone may not be able to help. For that, you would need testosterone replacement therapy.

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has been repeatedly studied and shown to have tremendous benefits in reversing the adverse effects of low testosterone. TRT helps increase the amount of usable testosterone in the body, relieving you of low testosterone symptoms. While TRT is helpful, make sure you get treatment from a facility that is experienced and well-versed in providing this therapy.
