    Strength Training and Testosterone

    Higher testosterone levels generally translate into increased libido. Testosterone is one of the key hormones in the body that affects sex drive and endurance. It is not uncommon for sexual desire to wane relative to decreased testosterone levels and/or due to age or other health related issues. Weight training can be an important means to help increase levels of testosterone in the body and reduce the risks of impotency.
