PNBA Michael Ferencsik compares lifestyle changes vs. TRT for raising your testosterone as it naturally declines with age. 

Testosterone is a critical hormone that helps you build muscle mass. But there’s no denying that your testosterone levels will naturally decline as you age. Although, there are different routes you can take to keep your testosterone in normal ranges at every age decade of life. Professional Natural Bodybuilding Association (PNBA) Michael Ferencsik gives his views on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) vs. lifestyle changes for increasing your testosterone as you age.

Michael Ferencsik has been a PNBA athlete for 20 years and is in the PNBA Hall of Fame. Nowadays, he competes in the PNBA Men’s Bodybuilding Grand Masters category. He’s also a vegan and animal rights activist. Ferencsik recently shared his opinion on his stance on TRT or lifestyle changes for boosting your testosterone. Ferencsik said:

“AS MEN GET OLDER, THEIR TESTOSTERONE LEVELS MAY DECLINE ABOUT 1 PERCENT PER YEAR AFTER AGE 30

SO MANY OF OUR CLIENTS ARE ON TRT THESE DAYS. AT THE AGE OF 60, 70 OR 80 YRS OLD. THEIR PHYSICIANS HAVE CONVINCED THEM THAT IT’S NECESSARY AND THAT IT’S THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.

DON’T GET ME WRONG, I’M A BIG BELIEVER IN THE BENEFITS OF TRT BUT I’M A MUCH BIGGER ADVOCATE FOR CHANGING YOUR LIFESTYLE BEFORE COMMITTING TO SOME PHARMACEUTICAL ENHANCEMENT THAT YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN NEED.”

PNBA Michael Ferencsik’s Stance on TRT

Michael Ferencsik isn’t against TRT for increasing your testosterone levels. He admits that as you age, your testosterone will decline – by 1% every year after 30. But he also says TRT won’t do much good for you if you don’t make lifestyle changes.

And Ferencsik believes that lifestyle changes are all many middle age men need to naturally get their T levels in a normal range, which he claims is between 280-1,100 ng/dL for men and 15-70 ng/dL for women.

Ferencsik believes that TRT can benefit some people, especially women (since he says balancing estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, and testosterone is challenging). Although he points out that as a natural bodybuilder, he doesn’t believe TRT has a place in natural bodybuilding competitions.

How to Boost Testosterone Naturally 

As Ferencsik stated, testosterone is a sex hormone responsible for many body roles, including regulating your libido, bone mass, muscle mass, and strength. And there are many ways you can boost testosterone naturally.

Your diet, exercise regimen, and lifestyle all play a massive role in your testosterone production. Limiting processed foods and eating a balanced diet of protein, carbs, and fats from whole foods will do wonders for increasing your testosterone. Also, strength training a few times a week and getting enough sleep will boost testosterone naturally.

Also, supplementing with vitamin D or getting enough sunlight can naturally increase your testosterone. Moreover, Ashwagandha is a natural herb that may increase your testosterone levels too.
