“Studies show that over 20% of men are experiencing a declining interest in sex. Low sex drive is generally due to low testosterone. “
John Romaniello posted this on Facebook a long time ago. It really frightened me to read this. It also encouraged me to do my best to learn everything about boosting testosterone so that I could feel like The Incredible Hulk!
Being a fan of the UFC, I always heard of testosterone replacement therapy and the need for testosterone. I was confused on the topic. I did know one thing for sure. I wanted to boost my testosterone, but I wasn’t willing to take any needles.
My testosterone wasn’t low, but it wasn’t as high as it should be.
Nobody wants to have a low sex drive. No dude wants to feel like a little bitch. Nobody wants to walk around being tired all of the time. Nobody wants to be afraid of everything.
We all want to feel on top of the world, be happy, be ready to go, and be ready to conquer. And we definitely want to leave our partners smiling and begging for more!
What’s life without some great sex and feeling like a man?
“People say that what we are seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think this is what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive.” — Joseph Campbell
What if I told you that I can help you?
Before you brush this article off, let’s be honest. We have ALL experienced that one moment where we don’t feel like a man. This can range from feeling weak all the way to not being able to get stiff when you’re about to perform. It happens, but it shouldn’t!
I’ve made it my personal goal over the last little while to build up my testosterone so that I always feel alive. The only problem was that I didn’t know where to turn at first. So I went to John Romaniello and his new book to help me out here.
How do you boost your testosterone and feel like an animal?
There’s a cheat sheet that I go to. When I feel slightly down or when I want to change something up, I go to this cheat sheet and work on something, one thing, any thing, to get my feeling like an animal again.
This is directly from the book, Man 2.0: Engineering The Alpha, along with my thoughts. You can check out the homepage of the author of this book, John Romaniello, at Roman Fitness Systems (highly recommended).
These are the tips that Romaniello shares for boosting your testosterone naturally:
- Lift heavy weights.
- Do intervals.
- Do sprints and work your lower body.
- Supplement with Vitamin D (at least 300 IU/day).
- Don’t smoke.
- Take zinc.
- Sleep more than six hours per night.
- More protein.
- Squats and deadlifts.
- Fish oil.
- No overtraining.
- Eat eggs.
- Add fat from animals/dairy to your diet.
I know that it sounds like a lot. You don’t have to add everything to your lifestyle at once. Boring fitness advice comes to KR to die. You don’t have to change everything up at once. Just keep in mind that this is the list to consult when you want to find natural ways to feel better.
Don’t stress if this all feels overwhelming. It’s a slow journey. A wild journey. A journey that helps you feel alive on those early morning workouts and those late night sessions where you’re pleasing a young lady.
We’re not done yet! We have even more tips to help you feel like Hulk!
I looked out for more tips. This great article over at Jason Ferruggia mentions the following points:
- Keep your workouts short/intense.
- Run sprints.
- Sleep 8 hours per night.
- Kill stress.
- Eat lots of healthy fats.
Once again, everything on this list is natural and totally possible for you to accomplish. Don’t act like you can’t sneak in another few hours of sleep.
What can I buy right now to help boost testosterone?
This is a good question.
I would start off with healthy fats (coconut oil/almond butter) and Vitamin D. We need some good ol’ D especially now that it’s winter in most of the world.
I love loading up on healthy fats. I always grab almonds, almond butter, and coconut oil. I add this to my high protein meals and it helps me feel damn amazing. It turns out that my testosterone is also being boosted at the same time. You really can’t go wrong.
You can also buy Zinc. It’s usually fairly inexpensive and a $10 bottle can last months. That’s the price of a beer on some nights out. So don’t tell me that you can’t afford it. Just remember to take Zinc with food because you don’t want to take this when you’re running on empty.
You can still continue training in the park if you would like to. Nobody is going to force you to change. All you have to do is add somethings to your routine once in a while.
Maybe throw some sprints in?
Of course, you should also consult with your Doctor prior to taking any supplements that you’re not totally sure of.
What’s the challenge here? How can I feel like The Incredible Hulk?
Try to implement 1-3 of these ideas into your life for the next three weeks.
I would much rather try one new thing at a time than try 20 new things. Why? Because that one new thing will get all of your focus and energy.
Instead of throwing out theory, I’ll share how I’ve added the tips to my life:
- I only focus on the main lifts: squats, deadlifts, and bench. I do this first and then perform other exercises if I have time.
- I try to sleep more by spending less time on USELESS stuff (watching porn, going on Facebook, and so on).
- I take Vitamin D and Zinc. It’s really cheap and helps me feel better. Totally worth it.
- I attend a grappling class or a conditioning class where we finish off with sprints.
- I buy more healthy fats when I do my groceries (almonds, almond butter, and coconut oil).
- I always try to eat protein. Lots of protein.
- I cut out stress by not getting involved in stressful activities (hanging out with the wrong crowd).
You’ll be surprised by the huge impact that will come from small changes.
If you’re not seeing any results, then you either have to become more extreme or just wait. Your mood won’t change over night.
What are some easy wins?
- Taking vitamin D in the morning.
- Focusing on squats.
- Sleeping more.
You can start off with these three tips.
If you can’t get it up, always feel tired, or just don’t feel like a man, I guarantee you that the tips above will help you. As I slowly apply these tips to my life, I feel more on top of the world as everyday goes by.
Are you going to become a pounding machine or will you be a little bitch? It’s your move.
And ladies… You’re welcome!
