Testosterone Optimization Therapy is potent, but it’s not a magic wand to solve all your body physique problems. It has to be followed by a strict regime of activities, weight training, and cardiovascular exercise if you want to make the most of it. If you’re wondering why TOT is useless without regular weight training and cardiovascular exercise, we have the answers.
Building Lean Muscle
Having muscles without being fit won’t provide you with many benefits. But why is building lean muscle so important? For aging men, muscle is the means of preventing diseases related to aging. Having a healthy and developed body means you become more resistant to injury, that you enjoy an increased metabolic rate as well as improved insulin sensitivity. Since TOT enhances protein synthesis, it’s perfect for building lean muscle tissue and reducing your body fat. The good thing is that you will be more motivated to hit the gym as soon as you begin TOT.
How Often You Should Exercise and How
Regularly lifting weights and consistently doing cardiovascular exercise is the best way to make the most of TOT and transform your body. It would be optimal to work out 3-5 times per week for up to an hour per session. However, going through the motions won’t do you any good. Instead, you need to teach your mind and your muscle to communicate, and to be completely focused on how you’re making the movements. Be aware of contracting your muscles and don’t be afraid to take extra control of the weight you’re using and how you’re executing each rep. Achieving perfect form while working out will stop seeming so unattainable after some time by exercising regularly. Visualize it, concentrate, and control.
When it comes to cardiovascular training, you have good options in HIIT and SMIT (high-intensity interval training and supramaximal interval training). Low impact forms of these training regimes for older athletes would be a better choice to avoid potential injury to joints and soft tissues. The same applies to high-impact endurance exercise, like jogging.
Recovering from Intense Workouts
Necessarily, for keeping your body healthy and recovering from exercise is to receive enough sleep. There is no hack for this, and it’s the step that you can’t skip. Having adequate rest replenishes your muscle fibers by alleviating the stress and damage caused by intense resistance training. Always do your best to sleep between 5.5 and 7 hours, and keep an optimal anatomical form to avoid back and neck pain. If you’re having trouble falling asleep, Melatonin supplementation might help. It will also have a beneficial effect on your immune system and prevent cognitive decline. Experimenting with the dose might be necessary until you find what works for you.
Injuries happen, and they can be more frequent as you age. Avoid doing the movements that hurt, and make sure to treat your injury first with the RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation), then see if it develops into something more severe. To prevent injuries, work on your mobility and flexibility, especially of your joints — yoga can work wonderfully there. Alternatively, there are other recovery techniques, such as body tempering, Sauna heat therapy, Cryotherapy, and grounding.
