We’re facing an epidemic. Men, that is. It’s an epidemic that leaves us impotent, unable to build muscle or burn fat, lethargic, and depressed.
It’s a virus that’s spreading fast. One that was once thought to only attack us as we age is now being seen in men under 20 years of age!
The epidemic I’m speaking of is low testosterone, and we’re seeing it not just in men over the age of 25 (who are experiencing a decrease of between 1.2 and 1.3% annually), but in men much younger than that.
Researchers out of Massachusetts found that the average man’s testosterone levels have dropped by 1.2-1.3% annually over the last 20 years with 1 in 4 men experiencing lower than average T levels.
That means that a 30 year old man in 1986 had significantly higher testosterone levels than a 30 year old man in 1996, and ’96 had higher levels than 2006 and so on…
With each decade we’re producing less testosterone. It’s as if men are becoming less manly. And as we see this fall of man, this emasculation, we’re seeing increased obesity, heart disease, depression, and a host of other ailments rise in relation to it.
What you have to understand is that it’s not your genetics that are holding back from getting ripped, jacked, energetic, happy, and successful, it’s your hormones.
And when you fix this underlying cause with the simple tactics I’m going to show you in this article, you free your body to perform as it was always meant to.
Standing atop a mountain in Maui, staring down the slide that the fine gentleman who owned the property had constructed, I determined that no matter how fast I went I wouldn’t slow down.
A few seconds later, after some dicey turns and some close calls, I was skidding face first on the lava rock that surrounded the pool at the base of the slide.
It’s this trip to Maui, and this “accident” on the insanely poorly constructed slide, that first showed me the true power of optimal testosterone levels.
Only a few months earlier I’d found out that I had low T levels when I went to the doctor and demanded a blood test. I’d been doing some reading into how low T levels show themselves…
I was walking around in a daze, half the man I was, and this gradual decline was reaching critical mass. I didn’t know what was wrong with me, so I demanded the test.
The doctor thought it was a waste of time to give me a blood test because I was only 24 years old, but I insisted.
Needless to say, as a guy, I freaked. But when the doctor came to me with his solution (testosterone replacement therapy), I said I’d handle it.
What I did know was that TRT is basically…
