You had to know we wouldn’t forget the most important intervention of all: sexy ladies. Visual arousal is a great way to boost T. We’re all married, so let’s just say we went home and gazed longingly into our spouses’ eyes.
But it’s not just your perception of women that matters. Men you find intimidating, even if you aren’t aware of it, may negatively impact your hormone levels. While this reaction is related to our dominance instinct, if you lift regularly, you may have the confidence to resist this response.
Our Findings: The trial we used for intimidation caused little variation in testosterone. Perhaps more importantly, the test involving attractive women yielded a healthy boost in T, which is great considering that women are often our primary impetus to train. For an easy testosterone spike, check out bikini competitor Ali Sonoma who was featured in a previous issue of M&F.
Conclusion: It’s official: Reading M&F really does drive up T levels.
