One sure way to up your testosterone is by lifting some heavy weights. As Ronnie Coleman once said, ‘Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder but nobody wants to lift no heavy-ass weights.’ It’s obvious that big Ronnie is a testosterone-fuel freak in his days of holding the Mr. Olympia title. There’s no doubt that lifting heavy produces muscle building results.
Another fact is Ronnie Coleman was known for his thick and huge back. When he displayed his back pose, it was lights out. So there’s no doubt that lifting heavy boosts testosterone. With that, we’re going to share a heavy back workout.
|Back Exercise||Sets x Reps|
|Bent Over Rows||4 x 6-10|
|Deadlifts||4 x 6-10|
|Seated Rows||4 x 8-10|
|Lat Pulldowns||4 x 10-12|
Bent Over Rows – We have you starting with doing classic bent over rows (also known as barbell rows). Any type of rows are true mass builders. We have you going fairly heavy on these but minimum of 6 reps.
Deadlifts – Deadlifts are king of building muscle and boosting testosterone. Deads work your entire body and multiple muscles. You’ll want to go heavy on these as well.
Seated Rows – We’re upping the reps a little here but that doesn’t mean go light. Choose a challenging weight.
Lat Pulldowns – You’ll finish up your back workout with lat pulldowns for widening your back. Go heavy but don’t sacrifice form.
If you perform this back workout once a week with intensity you will force your back to grow and boost your natural testosterone at the same time. Make sure you’re eating plenty of healthy sources of protein, carbs and fats as well to recover.
