Exercise has many proven health benefits. Higher testosterone levels is one of them. A 2012 study found that men who exercised regularly had higher levels of testosterone compared to men who were inactive. Women also benefited from incorporating a daily workout (via Piedmont). Although, unlike men, as a result of working out, estrogen hormones increase, which helps with unpleasant menopause symptoms.
While any type of exercise does the trick, resistance training, like weight lifting, has been found to be the most successful at increasing levels of testosterone in men (via Piedmont). “As muscle mass increases, it will trigger the body to produce more testosterone,” says urologist, Dr. Jadick, D.O.
Physical activity may also help you lose weight, which can help with low testosterone (via Piedmont). Men who have too much visceral fat regularly have low levels of the hormone compared to those with healthy levels of body fat.
