Key Points:

Short Spikes

Experts may lead you to believe that squats and deadlifts will elevate or permanently increase your level of Testosterone. The reality is that you will only see a short spike in testosterone after a training session.

No Correlation

Studies show that the short boost in Testosterone Levels either have a very weak correlation or absolutely no correlation between a squat session and actual, noticeable muscle growth.

There is no real, direct use of increasing the frequency of your squat or deadlift sessions. Therefore, the average lifter shouldn’t be concerned about boosting testosterone levels through specific exercises.

Balanced Resistance Plan

Heavy resistance training does boost your testosterone levels. Some exercises may better then others, but instead of being concerted about increasing your hormone levels, focus instead only one following a complete, balanced workout plan.

Muscle growth is a localized event, therefore it’s important to train your entire body. If you only focus on squats and deadlifts, then don’t be discouraged if you have a weak and small upper body.
