Today, we have a cracking guest post from Chad Howse, one of the top fitness coaches on the internet today. I’ve known Chad for a while now and he runs a honest, straightforward man-development blog called Chad Howse Fitness. Chad’s article are in-depth, life-altering, and sometimes just the kick up the ass you need.
However, you’ll notice that Chad very rarely wears a shirt! I’ve ripped the mick out of him a lot for that. Sadly though, he has that sort of body you want to show off! Ripped abs, muscular arms and a beast of a back. He has the sort of body we all want. But how do you get a body like his? Many toil away in the gym for ages and never get that sort of body. So how do you get it?
To get into great shape, you need to dial in your nutrition as well as put in the effort in the gym. Yet so few guys know what they should eat and why. Worse yet, the majority of guys are actually eating the sorts of foods that will hamper their progress.
Nutrition is a vital component to getting the body you want. Poor food choices will deplete the chemicals in your body that you need to build muscle and lose fat and vice versa. Today, Chad is going to explain how you can give yourself a test to see if you are suffering from low Testosterone and what you can do about it.
Chad has hooked us up with a quick article. Make sure you run down the list and see if you’re showing any signs of Low T.
Alright fellas, it’s Chad here.
Testosterone is the most important hormone for men to maintain healthy, high levels of. But how do you know if you’re experiencing “low T”, or if it’s something you should test?
Low T is a pandemic that’s being seen across the world, but most of the causes of low testosterone are actually under our control.
Your diet, training, and even the environment you surround yourself with, has an effect on your testosterone levels.
Run through these ‘5 signs’ to see if you’re suffering from lower than optimal testosterone…
If any of these sound like you, go to your doctor and get tested, but DON’T opt for testosterone injections, even if your doctor recommends them (here’s why).
1. You’re not waking up with the soldier standing at attention/low sex drive.
Low sex drive or erectile dysfunction is a sure-fire sign you’re experiencing low T. If you’re having either of these problems, get your T levels tested.
2. You’re storing more body fat.
Increases in body fat can be a sign of low T, as can a increased difficulty in burning it. If you’re finding it exceptionally hard to burn fat, you may be suffering from low T.
The first step is to fix your diet to increase your natural T levels (more on this in a bit).
3. You have low energy or fatigue.
Finding your energy levels getting lower? Or, have you always just had low energy levels? A lack of testosterone could be the cause.
High, natural testosterone levels decrease the likelihood of depression in men, but it’ll also enhance our energy levels. It’s important to have high natural T levels for physical, and mental health.
4. Experiencing muscle loss.
Testosterone, in its nature, repairs tissue. Some of that tissue is the muscle tissue you’re breaking down during a workout.
If you’re experiencing low T, you’re not going to recover from your workouts as effectively as you would if you have high, natural testosterone levels. You’re also not going to be able to build as much muscle or burn as much fat.
Testosterone, if at optimal levels (which is relatively easy to accomplish with the right exercise and nutrition program) will help you perform more efficiently, not just in the gym, but at work, at home, and in the sack.
