testosterone level

Hi Guys,

Just got a test back from the docs showing my testosterone level at 12.4 nmol/L

the healthy range on the sheet said 10-32 and doc said it was fine

just wondering since it is near the bottom of the healthy range would this be inhibiting my gains in the gym? and what would be a good level to be at to be making better progress?

ive been working out 2 years so far (5 days a week) and have made little progress, or at least not enough for my liking.

thanks

Diet and exercise can increase your testosterone levels.  Focus on heavy squats and deadlifts, eat high protein fairly high fat meals, avoid soy products and simple sugars.

Vegans have higher testosterone levels than vegetarians who have higher testosterone levels than omnivores.

It's not that being at the bottom of the range will "inhibit" - it's more that being mid-high range will provide a much larger and more accessible "potential" for gains. BTDT myself..

That is just patently false.
