The barbell squat is known as a challenging exercise that works all your lower body muscles. But it does way more than just make your lower body muscles strong, in fact, it helps makes all your muscles groups stronger because it boosts testosterone which helps maintain muscle size and strength. Rather than taking a supplement or steroid that stimulates testosterone production, by doing high-intensity squats and resistance exercise, you can produce testosterone naturally and get the same effect. Other ways to boost testosterone levels include lowering stress, eating a balanced diet, sleeping, keeping body fat low and training hard.
The most effective way to boost testosterone through squats is high volume resistance training to moderate to high intensity with short rest intervals. The perfect ratio for squats is a light weight for 10-12 reps, 10 sets of 5 reps of barbell squats, with a 2-minute rest between sets. You will be working out your hips, glutes, and quadriceps.
