You already know that testosterone is the hormone responsible for most masculine traits, including muscularity. But do you know how testosterone works? Building muscIe starts with testosterone, you can maximize your natural testosterone levels and fuel musc1e growth with smart nutrition so you can build the tight, sculpted body you desire! Many people think eating fat makes them fat, but fats are very important when it comes to balancing your hormone levels and preserving musclle. Being deficient of fat in the diet, particularly essential fatty acids or EFAs, can impede musclle building. They assist in amino acid uptake, increase insulin sensitivity, provide the building blocks for growth factors, boost testosterone production and assist with transport of important nutrients in and out of the cells.
Testosterone Facts: Just as some men are blessed with more fast twitch mu5cle fibers, some are naturally endowed with higher levels of testosterone than others, and will have an easier time growing their mu5cles as a result. As men, we hit peak testosterone levels around the age of 30. This is, in part, why you see so many great athletes achieve their greatest accomplishments in the late 20s. Unfortunately, it's also why mu5cle mass and musc1e tone are more difficult to maintain after age 30.
