Exercise and Lift Weights
Studies show that by exercising you can raise this hormone level. Lifting weights is the single best thing you can do, and especially lifting heavy weights. The human body can make this hormone when the muscles are under tension and when new muscle is being built. By lifting weights, you can speed up this process. Besides that, there is no point in raising your hormone level if you don’t lift weights. So, for all of you who are not yet lifting, this is the time to begin!
Eat Protein, Fat and Carbs.
Eating enough protein, fat and carbs will make sure that your body can raise the testosterone level. We don’t mean that you should eat everything in sight, we only suggest that you eat in a caloric surplus. My making sure that you eat more than your body can burn you will gain weight, by combining this with lifting you can gain muscle. To make sure that you get all these macronutrients it is advised to keep track of the things you eat.

Minimize Stress and Cortisol Levels
It also turns out that the human body really can’t handle stress at all. When you are too stressed out you will have difficulty maintaining your current testosterone levels. They may even decline when you are under great deal of stress. Your libido will drop, and you will feel less energetic in the gym. To prevent this from happening it is wise to calculate some off time in your daily program. By making sure that your body can relax and that your mind can wander off you will make sure that your hormone levels won’t drop any further.
Get Plenty of Restful, High-Quality Sleep
The last tip that we can give you is that you should get all the sleep you need. By sleeping your body is able to restore all the hormones that it used in that day. For the average person 8 hours of sleep should be fine, when you go below this number and sleep only for 6 hours your body will be too tired to restore these hormones. So, before you go to sleep, make sure that all your devices are off and make sure that your room is nice and dark.

When you can’t do it naturally you can always visit the doctor to receive information about TRT replacement, this is some sort of legal and healthy dose of testosterone. But before you do this, always try to do it the natural way. Steroids are way more dangerous than you think and absolutely not necessary.
