Competition with other guys is a great way to work on fixing your low T naturally. Guys – our brains are wired to compete, no matter how simple the game- racing, golfing, fishing or fighting. To your T levels, it’s all the same. That’s me in the green shirt as my buddies and I took 3rd in the men’s division of an off-road triathlon relay. There weren’t exactly a ton of men’s teams, but we still competed hard. That’s what it’s all about. So get out there and try to kick a buddy’s ass at something!
In a 2011 study, researchers determined that just a week of getting 5 hours per night of sleep can drop Testosterone levels 10-15%. In just one week!

“After 1 week of 8-hour bedtimes (from 11 PM to 7 AM) at home, the participants spent 11 days in the laboratory for 3 nights of 10-hour bedtimes (from 10 PM to 8 AM; rested condition) followed by 8 nights of 5-hour bedtimes (from 12:30 AM to 5:30 AM; sleep restriction).”

One of the simplest fixes that I give to my clients who want to fix their Low T naturally is to turn off the computer, turn off the phone, turn off the TV and go outside.

This past weekend I was up in the mountains for an off-road triathlon race, Xterra Winter Park. It was pouring down rain and the organizers decided to postpone until next week. It would have been pretty easy to just hang around the hot tub, watch tv and stuff our faces all weekend. But that’s not my style.

While I work with a lot of guys who seek me out for help with things like low sex drive, and fatigue, and weight gain, you’d be surprised that a lot of women are looking for help too.

While the fundamental approach is the same- reducing the impact of the various types of stress that screw up the balance between stress hormone and sex hormones, the specific changes can be a little different.

Just remember this – guys over 40 need something to get away from the stress. The stress drives T down, the hobbies bring it back up. For me, it’s racing off-road triathlon (even if I’m not great at it). For you it can be whatever you want. But it does matter.

That’s me in the picture, running as fast as I ever have. You see, when I go in to these races, my main goal is to beat my time from the year before. And I knew it was going to be close this year.
