What is the Optimal Body Fat Percentage for Testosterone?

  1. What is the Optimal Body Fat Percentage for Testosterone?


    I'm looking to increase my Testosterone and am curious to find out what my BodyFat Percentage should be for the maximum Level for Testosterone?


  2. I would think about 10 percent, but I have no clue...

  3. That answer is gonna vary from person to person. But I would guess between 6-14% since most professional athletes fall within those %'s.

  4. make sure you dont cut carbs completely, there is much discussion on whether ketosis is hormone friendly

  5. at what point do you see abs?

    Also person dependant since some store more visceral fat than others. You often hear people quoting 10% as the cut-off for weak sixpacks, or atleast 4-packs but I've seen some people at 9% with still a 2pack.

  7. Wrong answers not to sound like a dill weed... The less Body fat the better. The body fat increases your estrogen. I would worry about diet and wat to incorporate with that. I think that has a greater role. But like i said the more bodyfat u carry the higher ur estro levels which prolly means ur test is not where it should be. thats my two cents

  8. Lowish like 10% probably, due to lower estrogen levels.
    But the process of getting low bodyfat, ie cutting, lowers testosterone levels.
    Possibly the process of maintaining Very low body fat will lower test levels too.

    Im positive there was a study on this, but in my opinion its in the 11 to14% range.

    Up to a point, since you need some estrogen, but fat cells actually produce the aromatase enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. That's one reason that for overweight people on TRT, transdermal is not always the best way since the test gets converted to estrogen on the way through the fat
