I apologize ahead of time because I'm sure most of these questions are asked every 2 days here, but like most of us I don't have the time to read 10 pages back to make sure... anyway. I have a few basic nagging questions I've been concerned with:
I'm 22 but feel that during puberty (which I'm not 100% convinced I'm completely done with; I'm definately a late bloomer), I wasn't producing the amount of testosterone I would feel is quite normal. This has lead to a generally skinny stature, not a huge amount of facial hair and a young look, among other things. However, from what I've read, testosterone is generated naturally during weightlifting, specifically during deadlifts, benchpresses and squats. My question is, since I'm on a mission for as much testosterone as possible, is there any way I can generate even more, naturally? I already do all three of these exercises, but short of actually getting on testosterone injections, I want to produce as much as I can. Is there anything else i can do, especially anything I might be able to do in between workouts, to improve my production of it? I've been working out for 3 months and already feel that it's given me a slight edge in growth, but I want to keep it increasing.
I know the million dollar question is always when to work out and how often, but after reading the millions of arguments both ways, the general consensus seems to be (on a basic level), to do roughly 3-4 days a week at most and mix up your exercises within those days. However, from what I always read about bodybuilders, they talk about schedules where they spend 4 hours in the gym and work out every day. My question is, how can even bodybuilders sustain this? I mean doesn't the body do its actual growing and bulking up during your rest periods? I'd like to work out as much as possible without overtraining, but I can't figure out how a daily workout schedule could work without being counter-productive.
I've read in places that the abs are somewhat different than other muscules in the sense that you can work them daily without overtraining them. Since getting results on abs is pretty tough, and I'd like to see a more defined ab area as much as anyone else, is it true I can do an ab workout daily?
Thanks, and again I apologize for asking questions that are probably annoying by now.
