A quick video to do on your break at work or between sets at the gym or before female garments are removed, prior to some……(you complete the sentence).

Although testosterone boosting supplements are a multi-million dollar industry, the reality is that there is no reliable research currently available to demonstrate that these products can raise and sustain natural testosterone levels to a high enough level for positive effects on muscle growth and strength gains to take place.
Testosterone boosting herbs such as tribulus, maca, longjack and avena sativa may be useful for increasing libido, but not for bodybuilding and fitness purposes.
The one thing you can do, however, is use specific supplements that will optimize your testosterone levels if they are currently at a slightly below normal range.
The first 2 natural “testosterone boosters” that might be of use in a situation like this are magnesium (200-400mg daily) and zinc (20-30mg). These minerals are drained from the body through sweat and play an important role in maintaining proper testosterone balance. Deficiencies are common in hard-training lifters, and supplementation can bring them back to the proper level.
The second testosterone boosting vitamin is Vitamin D3 at 2000-5000IU per day. Unless you live in a very warm climate and spend multiple hours a day outside in the sun, there’s a very good chance that your vitamin D levels will not be at the proper range. This can negatively impact testosterone production which may impact muscle growth and fat loss. Vitamin D supplementation may also help out when it comes to maintaining balanced mood and energy levels.
Although these 3 testosterone increasing supplements will not take you to an above normal range, they will help to optimize your natural test levels if they have been lowered as a result of hard-training and lifestyle factors. You can either go with a high potency multivitamin or just purchase all 3 items separately.
