Testosterone is key for guys, and having low testosterone can negatively impact you in your daily life. Testosterone is key for building muscle in your workouts, and working out with resistance training is key for helping you increase your testosterone levels. So, how does intensity affect t-levels? Stick around as I go over this with you.

When you are working out, you need to be pushing yourself to improve in each exercise whether it is reps or weight. If you are just doing the same weight and reps, your body is going to get used to it, and you will not see any benefits from those workouts. Don’t just go through the motions when you are working out, really push yourself by increasing the intensity and keeping it high.

When you are pushing yourself hard, your body and muscles are going to build up lactic acid. When this happens, your body is going to increase the muscle growth during the repairing and rebuilding of the broken down muscle fibers. Doing this will trigger your mind and body to ramp up its natural production of testosterone and growth hormones.

If you feel like you are sluggish, not building muscle, and not seeing results..maybe you should check your testosterone levels. It is very easy to do, and you get the results quickly. Click this link to see how Let’s Get Checked works to get your testosterone level results.

Alright guys, that wraps up this video on how intensity affects t-levels. Make sure to subscribe to our channel for more videos on how to increase intensity in your workouts to build muscle and get ripped!

    Great video Mark…..keep up the good work!

    As a 57 y/o competitive powerlifter with 16 CDN national records, I would add it depends on the lift and what stage of my cycle I’m in how intense I am. For example, on BB Back squat, I never go to absolute failure, except at a competition when I am peaked and my body is prepared for the weight. In training, I usually stop at approx 1-2 reps short of failure. Training to failure regularly for us older lifters on the heavy compound lifts could be a recipe for injury. On the other hand, training to failure on isolation lifts like Bicep Curls is usually not a problem when done often.

    Very well said sir about this topic and keep it up and keep training hard and be strong always sir and stay safe and stay healthy and be positive and happy always sir

  4. Chris d on September 1, 2022 at 6:05 am

    I always work to failure

  5. Matt M on September 1, 2022 at 6:09 am

    When I want to check my T level, I just go to the doctor. That is much cheaper here in Germany. Because we have a health insurance.

    Rest Pause Increases Intensity..

  7. Steve123 on September 1, 2022 at 6:11 am

    Problem is when your T levels drop you struggle to be able to hit a level of intensity, for me as I got into my late 30’s I found that it was like trying to accelerate whilst being stuck in a high gear. Then as I hit my 40’s my muscles started to feel more ‘fragile’ which gave my body a ‘take it easy’ kind of feeling compared to my youth where my body seemed to want to max out and see how much it could push the limits.

    Amazing amazing information, really very helpful. God bless you coach🙏

  9. M20 on September 1, 2022 at 6:13 am

    Will increased intensity also cause cortisol levels to increase and if so, is it a problem?

  10. David Kennedy on September 1, 2022 at 6:14 am

    Been watching your videos for a year now and consistently been lifting and eating right, cut breads and sugars. Lost about 20 pounds, built some muscle, but it sure is slow growing. T levels are in the tank from the start and can’t get them to rise, no matter how Intense my workouts are. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for keeping me motivated.

  11. Patrick Dunham on September 1, 2022 at 6:21 am

    The current science is, leaving 2-3 reps in reserve give the same hypertrophy and strength gains as failure. I’m not sure why you’d encourage older people to work out like they’re 20. So much more chance of injury.

  12. Francisco Arroyo on September 1, 2022 at 6:22 am

    Great video! Made me realize one should attack life the same way With full intensity Go hard or go home 💪😉

  13. Free Bee on September 1, 2022 at 6:22 am

    Next time tell us your weight, and the tell us the weight you are pressing.

  14. DVAB NJ on September 1, 2022 at 6:23 am

    Your working assumption is that everyone has the same fitness goals you do and that somehow we are wasting your time if we aren’t lifting to exhaustion or failure; nothing could be further from the truth, especially as we get older. More and more studies show that weight bearing exercise has huge physiological benefits, especially if you are otherwise sedentary. If you chose to use light weights and not push yourself, you are still doing your body good so keep it up. Frankly, if you are worried about your T levels, then you probably should rethink your priorities. That said, the science is also pretty clear that you need to get your heart beat up a few times a week, so if it isn’t through lifting, find some other exercise to get you there. As an FYI, I work out intensely for 11 hours a week including 6 hours of high volume, high intensity lifting.

  15. Liam Taylor on September 1, 2022 at 6:23 am

    Great video, great message. I think calling it at 13 was a good idea, as it looked to me like form failure would have come at 14. 🙂
    One question: for guys who can recover from a set like that in, say, 3 days, should they maybe have done two sets? What is the ideal number of days to full recovery + growth? Knowing that I could adjust my set count.
    Thank you!

    Today I want to go more in depth on how your workout intensity affects your testosterone levels… And this is key, because your T-levels will make or break the results you get from your workouts, especially after 50.

  17. vinaysahal on September 1, 2022 at 6:33 am

    Is it possible to increase T levels after 40??

  18. Gunner on September 1, 2022 at 6:34 am

    Distance runners get no respect from the “built physique” community.

  19. Jason Hurst on September 1, 2022 at 6:34 am

    How does this play a role – or does it – if our natural testosterone production has stopped because we’ve been, or are on Testosterone Replacement Therapy for a few years? (Testosterone Cypionate) Current T level is at 964 ng/dl.

    Also if we were 360 lbs, lost 120 lbs, but still have/want to lose another 50 or so; should we lose the fat/weight first before trying to add muscle; or can we do both simultaneously? Age 62.

  20. Jim Lau on September 1, 2022 at 6:35 am

    I am 64 and I workout almost every day in the past 2 months. In the first 3 weeks, my whole body was filled with so much lactic acid, and definitely very tired. But now, since I watched this channel, I used lighter weight and 15 reps per set. I put on more muscle than I thought. The best way is that I lost a lot of belly fat and no more handles. Just 1 hour a day in the morning and got pretty good comments from my doctor. Thank you Live Anabolic.

  21. Frederick Potthoff on September 1, 2022 at 6:38 am

    I am 67 years old. And I am pushing to the limit. This vidio confirms my beliefs. Thank you

  23. Mauro Colagiovanni on September 1, 2022 at 6:48 am

  24. Nixon Madrazo on September 1, 2022 at 6:49 am

    Great explanation!

  25. Peter Anderson on September 1, 2022 at 6:50 am

    Mark, I love this video, but in a similar one that drove me to incredible intensity in my workouts, you said “ you should have your veins sticking out on your neck !!” That really struck home with me and my workouts have been completely different ever since !!

  26. 666mechanic on September 1, 2022 at 6:53 am

    Talks too much

  27. Frederick Potthoff on September 1, 2022 at 6:53 am

    Another informative vidio. Thank you.

  28. Rich CitizenScientist on September 1, 2022 at 6:57 am

    Way to clear that up for me, brother. Hitting 50 in a couple of years, but already starting your lead….many thanks coming to you from San Antonio 👊🤘
