1. Males on an 16/8 Intermittent Fasting diet, and lifting weights 3 x day showed very favorable results in terms of body composition, HOWEVER their testosterone and IGF-1 anabolic hormones plummeted!!!!

https://translational-medicine.biome...967-016-1044-0

"Total testosterone and IGF-1 decreased significantly in TRF after 8 weeks while no significant differences were detected in ND (normal diet)"



2. High Intensity Exercise has been shown to INCREASE testosterone in previously sedentary males.

"The present data indicate a combination of preconditioning, and HIIT increases TT and SHBG in sedentary older males, with the HIIT stimulus accounting for a small but statistically significant increase in free-T."


So, if you want to help your Test levels, get on a High Intensity Exercise program.


HIT helps my symptoms greatly.
