    Not a call out of anyone specific.

    Everybody's trying to increase their testosterone so they can be winners, have you considered that being a loser may be why your testosterone is low in the first place?

    Maybe the modern low testosterone male epidemic is deserved! Dorks don't need testosterone to continue being dorks, so they don't secrete it.

    Herbs/lifting/music choices don't have much serious effect on neurotransmitters/hormones/thyroid secretion (important to realize testosterone is only one part of a very big network of chemicals) This is a very dorky attempt to solve the problem - single out osme hormone and then try to fix it with MMORPG herbs and spices.

    As long as you're already lean, the only statistically proven ways I know of to make BIG testosterone improvements are sex and winning - and consistent wins produce consistently MUCH higher testosterone.

    SR, I don't feel called out, but I did want to respond, nonetheless.

    I take a T supplement because I'm almost 50. I still had a 35 inch waist, and I could OHP my own bodyweight, so I wasn't doing too badly. Some of this was from exercising smarter than I used to, and most of this was from better diet and (I firmly believe) more hydration. This was before I started any T supplements.

    What I've noticed since is that my recovery is a lot better than it used to be. Whereas I would finish a workout, go to bed, wake up and say "Holy fuck, what have I done? Everything hurts!", I'm now getting up in the morning feeling pretty good lately. The only thing that changed was:
    • T-Bomb (thank you, @sasquatch)
    • Saw Palmetto
    • Garlic
    • More whole eggs
    • Whole milk
    • Almonds
    • Cutting out all beer and sugar
    No TRT or steroids, but a T-focused diet and lifestyle. I may explore TRT/roids someday, maybe in 10 years, but for now I'm happy with my results.

    I disagree with 99% of what you say but this is an exception. Winning will fix your life. Even if it's just small wins at first, eventually they'll snowball.

    The T-Bomb thanks should go to @Rudy as he pretty much had everyone on it at one time.

    Sounds like some self improvement guru BS. Lifting matters probably the most of anything since you're literally recruiting your body to build muscle.

    I gave some blood today to accommodate rising hemocrit levels/thickening blood.

    I think our ancestors were onto something with blood letting. I gave a pint or two and felt like a dog who just got finished with a bath after.

    If you liked bloodletting, try trepanation.
