The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Testosterone

    Just wondering... does weight lifting increase your natural testosterone level? Ive only been working out about a month and feel a bit different. Not that I dont like it or anything, just wondering. I know working out releases endorphins and what not...

    Simple answer: Yeah it does.

    I work out because I have two daughters.....and one day they'll be teenagers.

    not that simple an answer - it depends on your intensity levels an how much muscle you are training e.g if your doing 1 or 2 body parts with medium intensity (what a lot of people do) its not going to create much test

    if however, you did a full body routine, with max intensity (as you get bigger this becomes close to impossible) it would create much more test

    this will go down fairly shortly afterwards though, its not something that sticks around

    So a full body high intensity routine will spike my test? Can you reference me on this please?

    I was just wondering about this subject.

    Is it possible to go to your GP (here in the UK) and asked to get your test levels checked just to make sure everything is ok? ? ?

    Yes. And if they aren't, then there are prescription drugs that will raise it to a natural level.
