  • "While testosterone is definitely anabolic and promotes muscle growth in men and women at high doses, such as those used during steroid abuse, our findings show that naturally occurring levels of testosterone do not influence the rate of muscle protein synthesis." sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/06/120614130946.htm (In case you'd like to increase natural T in order to build muscles) – Paul K Jun 30 at 9:35

So testosterone is produced by your testicles and in normal levels it doesnt do any damage. Low level of testosterone could be a sign of a disfunctional testicle or a varicocele.

You can Keep your testosterone levels high enough for your body type by reducing the sugar you receive. Sugar can reduce testosterone 25%.

Training the big muscles of your body like glutes quads chest and back will help keeping your testosterone high. Using full body exercises like the deadlift or the Olympic lifting movements is proven that will help you reach the maximum of the testosterone levels that your body can produce naturally.

    Welcome to Fitness.SE! Can you elaborate more on why leg workouts play a role in increasing testosterone? Potentially, add a source as well. – C. Lange Dec 30 '19 at 4:13

    The purpose of this board, as I understand it, is to provide information which is higher quality than the typical website. In other words, we try to reference actual scientific studies here. I looked up the menshealth article, and they mention the journal of strength and conditioning, but they don't provide a citation. It is impossible to know what study they are referring to. I would challenge @Hemant to dive into the research literature and come back with some actual citations. – Chris Jan 28 at 21:31
