    training / diet increasing test / gh???

    i know we all hear statements like 'squatting boosts natural test', or eating 'anabolically' promotes testosterone, etc. How much truth is there to these statements? i mean i'm sure there's some reason people say them, but is there any significant change in testosterone levels of a healthy male who begins doing a squat routine?

    (oh, when i meant diet, i mean foods that people say raise test, i don't mean things like fat, for instance, where eating fat when you previously weren't might raise test by correcting a deficiency)

    Anecdotal: I'd say it can be pretty significant. Check out some pics in the Members Pics section. After a year of training, some guys look like they aged at least 5 years...it's the testosterone.
