Our workout plans are designed to ensure that your body maintains a balanced testosterone-to-cortisol ratio. This is important because both cortisol and testosterone levels increase in response to exercise. Still, beyond a certain point, exercise intensity can become a source of physical stress that causes the body to produce too much cortisol and not enough testosterone.
Cortisol is a hormone produced in response to stress, and while it is important for regulating blood sugar levels and blood pressure, too much cortisol can negatively affect the body. In particular, high cortisol levels can lead to muscle breakdown, reduced immune function, and increased fat storage.
Testosterone, on the other hand, is an important hormone for building and maintaining muscle mass, supporting bone density, and regulating sex drive. However, it can also be affected by exercise intensity and stress.
We take into account the intensity and duration of each exercise session to ensure that your body maintains a balanced testosterone-to-cortisol ratio. By following our plans, you can optimize your hormone balance to support muscle growth, fat loss, and overall health.
