STRESS MANAGAMENT TO OPTIMIZE TESTOSTERONE

STRESS MANAGAMENT TO OPTIMIZE TESTOSTERONE

_

STRESS is huge and the key to helping optimize your hormones & specifically for guys…your testosterone.

_

Here are my top 5 elements to managing stress to help optimize your testosterone.

_

  1. Nutrition

_

Eat well & eat nutrient dense foods. Also, take into account that if you are trying to lean out and gain muscle mass, you have to create a calorie deficient that will not over stress the body.  Over stressing the body through nutrition will set you up to fall off track. I also will almost always stay away from Keto & Intermittent Fasting. It just too stressful on the body. Stick to eating well balanced meals multiple times a day.

  1. Training

_

Keep training simple and to the point. Stick to the fundamentals & mastering them.  In my book I feel it’s super easy to follow a circuit type training plan for each training day.  Set up is easy, you move from one station to the next & you train all fundamental movement patterns with compound movements.  Keep it simple! Watch for my Circuit Shred coming later this month!

  1. Sleep

_

Get 7-8 hours of sleep per night.  This can take some planning too.  Set a schedule and get to bed.  If you find yourself mindlessly surfing the web, insta, facebook.  Set the device down and get your ass to bed. Just do it, you will be happy. You will recover better & feel better too.

  1. Personal Time

_

Find time for yourself.  It can be simple things like reading or playing with your dog. My wife @ironbodybyartemis and I plan to explore hikes here in Vegas in the Fall.  While we were in Hawaii this past year, we really enjoyed hiking to many remote locations to snorkel & swim. I am sure we will find some great hidden gems!

  1. Meditation

_

I said this before, and I will again.  Find some time to quiet the mind. This could be sitting quietly or even going for a 10 min walk once a day. It helps to develop focus, & also let your mind create new ideas.  Just do it…its only 10 mins!
