Dr. Evans recently sat down with Jeremy Scott on the Jeremy Scott Fitness podcast to discuss fitness, low hormones and testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). You can listen to the entire 47 min podcast HERE.
Testosterone is Essential For Building Muscle and Cutting Fat
Anyone in the fitness world knows that hormones play a major role in cutting fat and building muscle, especially in men. When testosterone is low it can hinder your workouts by preventing you from gaining muscle, losing weight, or even having the motivation to go to the gym in the first place. Even though you are doing all of the right exercises and eating the right foods, low testosterone will prevent you from seeing results. It is like ice skating uphill or running through mud.
Careful Monitoring of Testosterone Treatment
In addition to explaining the “bro science” behind how hormones impact your fitness goals, Dr. Evans covers the importance of regularly monitoring your testosterone levels if you are undergoing testosterone replacement therapy through a doctor or using testosterone recreationally. Maintaining the right dose is extremely important to avoid side effects like gynecomastia (gyno or man boobs) or even more severe side effects like heart failure, strokes or blood clots.
Reasons for Low Testosterone in Young Men
Besides natural aging, Dr. Evans describes how injury, food, sleep habits and even your career can influence your testosterone levels leading to lot T. He gives his recommendation on which method of testosterone replacement is most effective and recommendations of exercises, food and sleep habits that help to boost testosterone.
