New Study Finds That Testosterone Has 2 Major Health Benefits

I think a lot of us know that testosterone levels naturally fall as we approach middle age, and because of this it becomes a lot harder to gain muscle and stay slim, and can also have an adverse effect on our libido and sexual function as well.

However you may be interested to learn that a new study has found that testosterone could also prevent heart attack and diabetes deaths as well, which are two more reasons why we should consider taking testosterone supplements in our 30s, 40s and 50s in order to raise testosterone levels naturally.

According to this BBC article, ‘boosting men’s testosterone levels could potentially reduce deaths from heart disease and type 2 diabetes’, based on the findings of a group of UK doctors and scientists.

Low levels of this sex hormone is apparently common in many cases of type 2 diabetes, and is said to be one of the main reasons why men are more prone to heart disease.

However before we all rush out and start buying testosterone supplements, it’s important to point out that this article also warns of the dangers of going in the opposite direction and having too much testosterone in the body, because there are health dangers there as well.

So I guess the main conclusion to draw from this latest study is that it is definitely a good idea to take a natural testosterone booster in middle age because this can prevent the risk of dying from heart disease and type 2 diabetes, and can also help boost muscle growth, enhance our overall mood and wellbeing, assist with weight management and improve our sex drive.

On a cautionary note, however, these supplements shouldn’t necessarily be taken for years on end because otherwise we will have too much testosterone in our bodies, and this in turn could lead to other health problems.

Finally, if you don’t want to take any kind of supplements, then you can always raise your testosterone levels by eating certain foods, such as the ones featured in this video:




A Legs Workout From Mike Chang That You Can Do At Home

If you are a member of a gym, it is very easy to get an effective legs workout because you can use their machines to perform various different exercises, such as the leg press, leg curls and leg extensions, for example.

However even if you are not a member of a gym, it is still possible to get a really good lower body workout that will help build strength in your legs and add muscle and definition to them as well.

To demonstrate this point, Mike Chang has posted a video of his highly effective crazy leg workout online, and the best thing of all is that the only equipment that you will need to perform this workout is a light set of dumbbells. Here’s the workout if you would like to check it out for yourself:

I tried doing this myself earlier on today and I really felt it immediately afterwards because I barely had enough strength to walk down the stairs because my legs were so tired, and I only did 4 rounds out of 8. So it’s clearly an intense and effective exercise routine.

It may only consist of 5 exercises – squats, back lunges, front lunges, explosive jumps and stiff leg deadlifts – but you are supposed to do 10 reps of each one and 8 rounds of these exercises, which is really hard work.

What I like about this routine is that these are all conventional lower body exercises that are all easy to perform. So you should be able to see noticeable increases in both size and strength if you perform this particular routine at least once or twice a week.

Remember that it is very important to work on your legs because it’s no good having huge biceps and bulging pec muscles if you have skinny chicken legs because you will look absolutely ridiculous in the summer when you are wearing a pair of shorts.
