HOW TO USE EXERCISE TO OPTIMIZE YOUR TESTOSTERONE!

HOW TO USE EXERCISE TO OPTIMIZE YOUR TESTOSTERONE!

_

Did you know that too much exercise can lead to decreases in your testosterone?

_

Its true, too much exercise in men over 40 can lead to over stress and decreases in testosterone!

_

As older men & women need to find a sweet spot and be more intuitive to the needs of the body on a particular day when exercising.

_

Many times I have clients that have very big goals. Goals ARE essential & I can help anyone to achieve any & all goals.  But we always have to follow some guidelines to make sure the body is functioning properly!

_

  1. Having a Set Plan

_

A plan is the map to achieve the goals.  We may have some intense exercise bouts but they may only last for a certain period of the plan.  Having a plan also gives a sense of accomplishment.  When we complete the plan & achieve the goals, we build self confidence & a feeling of empowerment!

  1. Train Fundamental Patterns(Conscious and unconscious

_

This means, make sure your training in all patterns that are fundamental to you as a human.  This means Vertical & Horizontal Pressing & Pulling with the upper body, Squatting, Hinging at the hips(practicing how to use the hips as power movers), also practicing getting up from the ground & back down. Finally working on unconscious movement also.  This means working on some things that will improve your unconscious gait & posture! (more on this to come soon!)

  1. Make sure you are Lifting Weights

_

Lifting weights is essential.  This is what helps to build & maintain muscle mass. Building & Maintaining muscle is the fountain of youth.  They key is how much should you be lifting.  In my opinion any little bit is good.  As log as you are seeing the results you are out to get & it is not wearing you down.  This is were a solid plan comes into play.  You should not be cutting out the weights to get that run in, or that bike ride in.  You should prioritize the weights to help give you a better run, or ride.  If the weights are making you too sore, BACK OFF! Use less load.  Maybe do a few less reps!  But always get your weight training in!

_

  1. Finally!  DON’T OVER DO IT.

_

Training many times a day may help you to reach a short term goal, but it is NOT a good long term action plan.  Your training should be 1 hour to 1.25 hours.  This is it.  You should be able to hit all your goals in that ONE session.  If you are going back for multiple sessions, chances are you will burn out.  The rest of the day should be focused on a great lifestyle.  Family, fun time, & keep your diet dialed in.  If your nutrition matches your training you will met your goals and have plenty of energy and a healthy mindset!
