Can't Get It Up? Hit The Gym Instead

By Ekaterina Mironova

If you’re in the mood but your body isn’t cooperating, it could be more than just middle age. Low testosterone levels affect many men – with more than 12% of the nation’s over 40s experiencing symptoms and effects of low testosterone. 70% of men with low testosterone levels report a lack of libido and sexual drive, and 63% of those with lowered sex drive also complain of erectile dysfunction.

It’s not all doom and gloom though. Researchers found that the cure could be closer to home than you think. A recent study showed that the effect of regularly going to the gym to shed beer bellies and extra tyres has had a phenomenal effect on men’s sex drives – especially those men in their fifties.

Shedding the extra load boosts testosterone which in turns promotes a healthy increased sex drive, high sperm count and stronger (longer-lasting) erections. Losing weight also reduces the risk of low testosterone by up to 50% in men in their fifties.

The study was conducted by a panel of Dublin-based doctors who examined 900 with an average age of 54. They were divided up into groups and given various treatments to evaluate the effect of different testosterone-treating procedures – from maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle and regularly exercising to taking a testosterone treatment drug.

The specialists found that the level of testosterone increased in direct proportion to the pounds lost in exercise – and their wives weren’t complaining either. Better looking bodies, better sex lives – what’s not to like?

Researchers also found that the drug replacement therapy alternative was as successful as the placebo therapy – and both showed insignificant results in light of the exercise routine. Dr Frances Hayes of St Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin reported that, “Doctors should first encourage overweight men with low testosterone levels to try to lose weight through diet and exercise before resorting to testosterone therapy to raise their hormone levels.”
