As well as the high-intensity training that I have suggested previously, strength training is also helpful in boosting testosterone levels, provided that the exercise is performed intensively.
If you are performing strength training in an attempt to boost your testosterone levels, you will want to increase the weight and drop the number of reps, and focus entirely on exercises that work a large number of muscles in one go.
Exercises such as dead lifts and squats are especially helpful.
To make your strength training even more effective, it should be performed extremely slowly.
By slowing down all of your movements, you are in fact turning this into a high-intensity workout.
Slow movements allow your muscles to access the maximum number of “cross bridges” between the protein filaments that are responsible for muscle movement.

Vitamin D is essentially a steroid hormone which is crucial for the healthy development of the sperm cell nucleus, as well as helping to increase the sperm count, and considerably increasing the quality of semen.
Vitamin D also plays a vital role in increasing testosterone levels, which will naturally bolster the libido. In one particular study, overweight men were given vitamin D supplementation and it was found that their testosterone levels increased dramatically after one year.
The recommended intake of vitamin D is between 50 and 70 ng/mL. In order to get the right amount of vitamin D, sun exposure is the best way to receive this nutrient.
Simply by exposing your skin to the sun is adequate enough for the production of vitamin D.
If you live in a climate where there is not much sun exposure available, you can try using a vitamin D supplement in an attempt to elevate your intake.

By its very nature, your body tends to release high levels of the stress hormone known as cortisol when you are experiencing stressful situations.
This hormone acts to block the effects of testosterone.
From a biological standpoint, testosterone associated behaviors such as aggression; competing or even mating can lower your chances of survival if you are put in an emergency situation.
In modern times, chronic stress is a major cause of unhealthy levels of cortisol, which means that any testosterone effects are blocked.
