      Stress raises testosterone, but only short term. This is definitely a meme. Controlled martial arts or heavy lifting or intense sprints is a much better answer.

    red meat, organ meats, fruit, juice, eggs from pasture-raised chickens, oysters
    Gym ~3 days per week
    Live a stress-free lifestyle, anything that makes cortisol go up makes testosterone go down (hence only ~3 days per week training)
    Sleep as much as possible
    A maximum of 0.8-1g of protein per pound of LEAN body mass, anything higher is wasted and lowers testosterone
    Plenty of carbs
    As little polyunsaturated fats as possible, as much saturated as possible in what you eat

        You gotta power through my man. Once you get used to it, squats give you adrenaline high like no other exercise. Do bulgarian split squats and leg curls if you have the machine at your gym. Also do deadlifts. All those together you should burn leg fat.

        Your legs actually help produce a lot of test. Another thing I want to add is you cannot neglect squats, don't you want to be mobile when you're older?

      Crucial. I'd say 90% of high test comes down to (1) Vitamin D levels ; (2) Low body fat (the highest proportion of body fat in non-obese people are in the gluteus and thighs) ; and (3) Low cortisol and psycho-social fulfillment.

      People look on the prevelance of beta and cucked males these days as a symptom of low testosterone, but it's quite the opposite; low testosterone follows in the wake of acting beta and cucked. If you act like a real man, and people respect you, your monkey brain (brain stem) will pick up on this and react accordingly. Psycho-social self-esteem has a huge impact on cortisol levels.

        Shit, I mean everything you said makes sense and I agree, but you just pointed out three most lacking things in my life. I don't go out at all, I don't train legs and I feel anxious around people

          Makes sense, then. Low testosterone is the symptom; and all your problems are solveable.

          You honestly have to put health first and radically change your life. When I was out of college and unemployed, I was just driving Uber Eats to make money for rent and booze, and I spent a huge amount of time just hanging out and sunbathing over the summer. I have just about as much money today as the kids who worked through college and straight out of college, because I took thinks slowly and thought before I got into anything. It pays to take time to figure stuff out, don't give into anxiety.

          As for anxiety, remember it's 100% mental and can only be cured through immersion therapy. Perfect your eye, and looking at people square in the eye when you talk is a skill you NEED to develop, and it'll surprise you how hard it is.

            Solvable with it without the trt??

              Anonymous

              Romans 14:5 "Each person should be fully convinced in their own mind".

              I don't need TRT so I've never given it much thought. For anyone around 500 ng/dL it might give you the boost you need, especially if you're depressed and unable to workout, but the problem with TRT is that it creates a chemical reliance on par with heroin legitimately. At some point you'll have to come off TRT otherwise your balls will be fricked up, and your testosterone levels will CRATER and your estrogen will SKYROCKET. So you're robbing peter to pay paul; for every dollar you borrow from TRT you'll have to pay 10 dollars when the piper comes due.

              I personally would avoid TRT and try the simple but HARD stuff first: like spending 8 hours a day in sunlight, getting to ~6% body fat, and socializing in person only, fulfilling your monkey brain needs. This will boost your Test much more than you think; you can probably get to 700 if you get Vitamin D, eat fish oil pills, and eat broccoli.

                Look at this based advice, on fit of all places. Totally agree. Do you listen to Dr. Jack Kruse anon? If not check out 6 hour appearance on the Tetragrammaton podcast where he tears Huberman a new butthole as he explains in detail why everything is about sunlight.

                I don't follow any podcasts or fitness channels, most of my IST advice comes from my own understanding and studies I read in my free time.

                90% of health comes down to living like the guy advises in "Bronze Age Pervert". We have to return to le monke, to copy those memes, and live life like our Proto-Indo-European ancestors who conquered the steppes and then Europe and Asia.

                Get lots of sunlight, spend as little time online as possible, only socialize in person, don't read the news or consume media, work out for 2 hours a day (that's the goal), and read the bible and pray and fast. That's my genuine advice.

                "Labor not to be rich ; stop your thinking"
                Proverbs 23:4

                To be based, stop listening to influencers. Are you a woman who gossips? Or a man who experiments and does? Go and conquer my son!

              it's a long shot, but drop caffeine(and all other herbal bullshit like ashwaganda that you might be taking) and start supplementing magnesium and b6, won't hurt to make sure you have enough of zinc and b12 while you're at it. Vitamins are cheap after all, and it might actually work.

                It could help, anyway it'd be even better if he had regular bloodwork. OP seems to have had "lab results", he or his medic could double check if there's something sorely needed to be supplemented. B-Complex, Mg, D3, K2, Zn... it's all good, but since we have "lab results", let's use them. Does OP show deficiencies on these values? We don't know

                Yeah ashwagandha isn't bs. Lowering your cortisol levels improves test and improves muscle growth and general health. Anything that lowers your cortisol will work though. Even chocolate.

    Kinda related question:

    What is actually the normal test range for young healthy adult males? Online you can find all kinda of different ranges that are supposed to be normal and sometimes they even contradict each other.

    And what is the optimum range for lifting?

      optimal is one you have, just lift and don't look for excuse, don't compare yourself to anyone exept past you.
      reference range is 300-1000 for 30 year old male
      but keep in mind organism response to test varies from person to person, that's why reference range is so wide

      Anything above 600 is good. Anything above 900 is god tier. A lot of common stuff negatively impacts test so the low end of averages is not really normal. Aluminum, plastics, concentrated phytoestrogens (most plant based oils and unfermented soi products), and high sugar intake can all mess up your test. Just make an effort to avoid this stuff a bit and it will do wonders. They aren't very potent if you aren't exposed to them all the time.
