Harvard researcher, Professor Amy Cuddy, showed that spending two minutes in a “Power Pose” increased testosterone and decreased cortisol (the stress hormone). The “Power Pose” is simply standing (or sitting) tall with your chin up, arms and legs wide and uncrossed. Just doing this has a profound impact on your hormone levels and in her study Professor Cuddy showed a 20% increase in testosterone after just 2 minutes in the “Power Pose.” If you walk around with rounded shoulders or cross your arms and legs throughout the day, take 2 minutes and raise your testosterone!
Hi my names Maddie and I'm 19 and attend the University Of Kentucky. I was in a fatal car accident during my senior year of highschool and hit a tree. I was in a coma 2 weeks. It's almost been 2 years since my accident and I was attending bellarmine last fall and was taking Ritalin and amantadine. Then second semester I lived away from home for the first time and was taking classes at the community college and dorming at UK. I started taking aderol because didn't like the way Ritalin made me feel. At the moment I feel like my recovery is going down hill, I am as tired as I have been in awhile. Last summer I had more energy than I do now. Last summer I also was in a fog and not 100% mentally there. This summer I'm mentally there but I am exhausted. I think I need to switch medicines. Any advice?
One caution that I have is that I tried for years to raise my testosterone through lifestyle changes, . diet, sleep, supplements, etc., and nothing budged my testosterone. And I see this quite often on The Peak Testosterone Forum : some men seem to have actual damage to some part of their HPT (hypothalamus, pituitary and testes) axis. In those cases, going natural just does not work for reasons that we do no understand yet. Of course, it does not hurt to try, and I especially encourage the younger men to do that.
