As a model in my mid 40s, it’s important that I pay extra attention to my diet and workouts, particularly when it comes to boosting my testosterone levels. Now that I’m older, having the energy to hit the gym five to six days a week is more challenging.
Sure, when I was in my 20s and 30s, I could march right in there no problem, even when I only had a few hours sleep the night before. I needed to change things when I hit my 40s. I needed to increase my testosterone levels so that I could feel energized and ready to hit it hard, and so that I could maintain or increase lean muscle mass and recover faster.
I did some research and discovered that working the legs, specifically the glute muscles, would help increase the production of testosterone in my body. In fact, research shows that doing leg and glute exercises doubles your testosterone levels when compared to using the bench press.
I combined leg workouts with Max Muscle Nutrition’s 2TX Natural Testosterone Amplifier.* I have since improved my leg workouts and increased intensity in exercises for the glutes, hamstrings, quads, and groin muscles. After a few weeks I really began to notice an increase in my energy levels. Not only that, my gal was a happier lady, too (wink!).
There is no better feeling in the world than your youth coming back into the veins of your body and eagerly wanting to get into the gym every day vs. wondering if you’ll be able to even step foot in it because of having zero energy from low testosterone levels.

So instead of doing the basic simple workout you may have always done for your legs…step it up! Do you want to produce strong, gladiator style legs? Do you want increased testosterone production? Of course you do!
Here’s a leg workout plan that you can work through in a good hour if you apply yourself.
Warm-Up: Do 10 minutes on a StairMaster – level 5 or higher to increase blood flow and get the blood pumping.
Squats or Hack Squat: Do 6 sets of 10 reps per set; last set complete to failure.
Glutes: Do 4-5 of 10-12 reps on the seated glute machine. A seated glute machine allows a person to sit straight and using glute muscles, extend weight outward so that knees are at furthest distance apart. Remember to sit up straight and squeeze at the extension of the movement. Then return to start position.
Hamstrings: Do 4-5 sets of the laying down hamstring machine, which is the standard machine all the gyms have at 10-12 reps each set. Allow muscles to stretch at peak resistance. Then return to start position.
Groin Machine: Most gyms have this machine and they are usually found in the machine weights section of the gym. Do 4-5 sets. Go slow at a moderate weight performing 10-12 reps. This is an excellent workout for increased T levels. Do not try to go as heavy because you can easily injure yourself.
Quad Extensions: Do 4-5 sets of 10-12 reps per set. Crank them out, make it count!
Calves: Do 4-5 sets of 10-12 reps each of standing calf raises. making sure to squeeze at the top. Take your time – this is a marathon, not a sprint.
Do this workout two days per week for the next couple months. You will feel sore, but that is what makes the muscles grow. Combine this workout with Max Muscle Nutrition’s 2TX* and watch what happens!
