With over 300 articles about ways to boost testosterone in this blog, 262-pages of T-optimization in TestShock, and 52 evidence-based ways to increase testosterone just solely in this one article, I get a lot of questions about where exactly should a “natural T-boosting journey” be started.

The good news is that in order to significantly speed up your natural testosterone production, you don’t have to focus on hundreds of specific little things. In fact just focusing on 8 “big variables” is enough to make a MASSIVE difference in your endocrine health.

This post will be very short, as I’m just going to list the ten most important ways to optimize T-levels, with some additional links to further – more detailed – reading;

  1. Get to (and stay at) 8-14% body fat
  2. Fix your underlying micronutrient deficiencies
  3. Start resistance training
  4. Consume enough calories
  5. Get your macronutrients on track
  6. Start sleeping more
  7. Kill stress
  8. Limit endocrine disruptor exposure
    • Multiple modern pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides are antiandrogens.
    • Man made chemicals such as phthlates, parabens, and Bisphenol A are potent at reducing testosterone levels.
    • Tap-water contains a wide spectrum of potential endocrine disruptors. [easyazon_link identifier=”B00I0ZGOZM” locale=”US” tag=”anabmen-20″]Easy fix is a simple water filter[/easyazon_link].

 Bottom line The 8 things above are the “big-hitters”, which when done right will without a shade of doubt significantly increase your testosterone production. Of course there are hundreds of more things that help here in AM blog and in the TestShock course, but before focusing on any minutia, consider getting the “core” stuff right first!
