A few excerpts:
Big compounds: More testosterone?The fact that the absolute resistance exercise-induced increases in T and C concentrations were not significantly correlated with any nutritional variables indicates that other mechanisms are responsible for the acute hormonal responses to exercise stress. The significant increase in T after both the bench press and jump squat exercise protocols confirms that high-intensity resistance exercise results in elevated concentrations of T (5, 8, 18, 19, 29). The fact that T was increased by ~15% after the jump squat exercise compared with ~7% after the bench press exercise was most likely due to the greater muscle mass used in the jump squat (16, 20).
Maybe it's the zinc from meat?Results showed a reduced resting and postexercise increase in T concentrations in athletes consuming protein derived mainly from vegetable sources compared with a diet with protein derived mainly from animal sources.
These data are consistent with the findings of several other investigations that have reported a decrease in T in individuals consuming a diet containing ~20% fat compared with a diet containing ~40% fatToo much PUFA is bad, but it doesn't tell about omega 3/6 ratios.Our results showed a nonsignificant correlation between PUFA and T and a significant negative correlation between the PUFA/SFA ratio and T.

so vegetable protein (soy) is better than animal protein (whey,etc)?
teaturtle - nope. Other way around.
test = GOOD.
God, don't you know anything? There were "studies" that show testosterone kills brain cells.Originally Posted by Built
Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men.
But pull your head on out of your hippie haze
And give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again
I used to know stuff. But the squats and deads I do stimulated so much test, I am now completely brainless.
I like how the found veggie protein to be inferior at boosting test. You don't win friends (or get laid) eating salad.
That's a picture of Scarlett Johansson.
This is referencing another study. Here are a couple of other relevant quotes from it:Originally Posted by Max Thunder
