Keep Testosterone’s Home Safe (your balls)
Ever notice that when it’s warm (or they’re warm), that your balls drop. Then when it’s cold their they’re brought back up closer to your body. Well, they drop because they want to move away from our body because it’s too hot. They need to cool down so they wander away. Things like boxers briefs and underwear bring our balls closer to our body when they want to be moving the other way. This brings more heat, heat that kills sperm and creates a less-than-optimal atmosphere for testosterone.
The thing is, we’re surrounded by heat. We take hot showers in the morning, then again after we train. We’re putting our balls through hell, what we need is less heat and more cold in that area. A couple options:
1. Take cold showers, but especially focus on your boys. Have a cold shower when you wake up, then again before you go to bed. I also take a cold shower after a workout to help expel lactic acid and glycogen from my muscles. Keep in mind that the most important area to keep cool is your balls, so if you don’t want to shower, make sure you get some cold water on your boys – use your imagination, I don’t even want to go down that road, but do what you gotta do.
2. Wear loose boxers – or nothing – when you sleep. During the day, my guys need support. I like boxer briefs even though they aren’t great for me. But when it comes time to sleep, I wear loose boxers or shorts, some opt for nothing at all – each of which is a viable choice. If you’re not willing to wear loose boxers during the day, make sure you give your balls some cool air when you sleep.
Lift Heavy Weights
Not only does weight lifting help decrease body fat and increase muscle mass, resulting in higher testosterone levels, but it directly effects T levels. Men – and women – need resistance training. Exercises like deadlifts, squats, and O-lifts help naturally raise both T levels and human growth hormone levels.
This is a topic we’re going to cover in an upcoming article in the Alpha Male series, about how to construct the Alpha Male Physique, but even on a hormonal level, lifting weights is very important. Find a routine (like this one), that contains the prescribed exercises I mentioned, and get started!
So we’ve seen foods that naturally raise testosterone, foods that we should be including in our diets. Now, let’s get down to the protocol’s. Have the following cocktail every morning and night before you go to bed. Accompany this cocktail with a cold shower to maximize benefits of both.
- 2 whole eggs (cooked or raw)
- 2,000-4,000 IU vitamin D
- 25 mg zinc (only once daily)
- 3 Omega Blue is the fish oil pills
Optional testosterone shake:
I got this shake from Tim Ferriss’ 4-hour body. It’s a great book. I’ve altered some of what he says due to new studies, but his information is great, definitely a book I suggest picking up. Have the following shake – similar to his – 3 times a week to elevate T levels.
- 2 raw eggs
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 2 cups organic unpasteurized raw milk
Naturally Raising Testosterone Levels in Men

If your goal is to be ripped, healthy, well-conditioned, jacked, or happy, you should be taking care of your testosterone levels.
Hopefully this article gave some valuable information. Information you’ll apply and scrutinize, but will help you not only raise your testosterone levels in a natural manner, but serve as one more piece to the puzzle that sees you becoming your very own alpha male.
