A new year is starting and surely many of you have made the commitment to go to the gym starting today... (A cliché, right?) If so, let me tell you that, although you probably already know what testosterone is and know many of the functions it has... Have you ever wondered why men have more muscle mass (usually) than women?
It's great to want to go to the gym with the new year, having proposed to take care of your body and remove the muscles that until now were hidden... (even if you don't see them for now, they are still there, I promise). However, before starting any sporting activity, it is not only necessary to stretch (super important), but we must also know how our body and, above all, our muscles work.
You are right! Although you may not find a direct relationship between the two a priori, the truth is that testosterone and the muscle mass of your body have a lot to do with it (even more than you imagine).
The truth is that men generally have more muscle mass than women. (And not because we say so, but because we have more testosterone in our body and this has a positive influence).
But why? Testosterone is a steroid hormone that has a natural anabolic effect ; that is, our body absorbs greater amounts of nutrients to create more protein in the bones and muscles of the body. In addition, high testosterone levels cause the body 's blood level to increase , so more blood will reach your muscles (as long as you train them too).
Therefore, high testosterone levels, combined with regular physical exercise , will not only make you lose abdominal fat , but that fat will turn into muscle mass . However, you should keep in mind that every process has its times and that you will not see immediate results. That is why, many times, there are people who take different supplements to increase testosterone levels . (Consult with your trusted doctor or doctor before making any decision).
How about? Now I can finally understand why men tend to be stronger than women... Because we have more muscle mass (and more testosterone )!
