    does strength training increase testosterone?

    Does weight lifting increase natural testosterone levels? It seems like it to me but maybe that's just late onset midlife crisis talking. Whatever the reason I'm lovin' it and can't get enough. Am I dreaming here?

    Talking

    Doing the right excercises certainly does make the body release testosterone.When I have done a good intense set of squats with good reps and weight and the same with deadlifts I get the horn from hell which shows in a practical way that the body is releasing T.

    This fact has been proven in many clinical studies. The heavier the exercise (higher stress), the higher the hormonal output. That's one of the main reasons squats and deadlifts are recommended so often on this site, and this forum, in particular.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    I work out at home with SelectTech 1090 dumbbells and, for my latest 6 week split cycle, added 3 compound/full body/strength/Olympic (or variants with dumbbells) to each split session - 1 to start it, 1 half way thru, 1 to finish it. Thus far I'm PRn a LOT & with much faster gains in many lifts than during my 1st 6 week cycle which did not have any of these full body lifts. I'm a little stunned at how fast some of them have progressed.

    I'm sold.

    Plus, I do so LOVE the raw, primal effort most of these lifts inspire/demand. Reminds me of pushing the 7 man sled "back in the day"....
