Did you know that a great leg workout can boost your testosterone levels? It is a fact that we lose muscle strength, and our physical capacity decreases with age, and so do testosterone levels. The effects of low testosterone levels on physical strength and the success of testosterone replacement therapy for improved muscle strength and physical function are clear. Testosterone and leg strength are connected.
Why you should balance your Low-T
Testosterone is synonymous with strong muscles, a masculine appearance, and a healthy sex life. But testosterone affects a lot more than your virility. In addition to its muscle-building and sex-drive functions, it also plays a role in the condition of your skin, your mental health, bone health and metabolism. Adding testosterone replacement therapy as a treatment for low testosterone allows men to lose more weight, exercise more often, and increase lean body mass.
Testosterone is a circulating hormone that moves throughout the body and is metabolized into different hormones, and it has many functions. One of the later signs of Low-T is muscle wasting, but long before we see the signs, our muscle is already weaker.
Muscle cells have receptors for testosterone called androgen receptors. When testosterone binds to the androgen receptors, the muscle fibers are maintained. Without enough testosterone, maintenance halts, and muscle loss results. And what’s worse is that low testosterone increases fat deposits, especially around your middle. Testosterone plays a role in fat distribution and how much muscle mass you’re able to build and maintain. Low levels influence your weight and can negatively affect fitness goals.
Testosterone therapy and a comprehensive exercise program results in significant weight loss in men. Correcting your low testosterone helps you maintain lean mass and lose body fat. When your testosterone levels are restored, your metabolism will increase, you’ll burn more calories, and you can say goodbye to the fat belly.
