Study Finds Physical Jobs Can Increase Testosterone and Sperm Count
As a testosterone therapy for men clinic in West Palm Beach, we were intrigued by this new study that indicates what you do for a living may impact your testosterone levels!
The researchers found that men who regularly lift heavy objects at work have higher sperm counts and usually higher testosterone levels than desk-bound workers.
Lead author of the study, Dr. Lidia Mínguez-Alarcón, a reproductive epidemiologist at Brigham’ and Women’s Hospital’s Channing Division of Network Medicine, said, “What these new findings suggest is that physical activity during work may also be associated with significant improvement in men’s reproductive potential.”
Dr. Mínguez-Alarcón also pointed out the broader implications of her study in that men with low testosterone are more prone to infertility and various other health issues, such as erectile dysfunction, obesity, and heart disease.
Men who do physical jobs are more likely to develop high levels of testosterone and more fertile.
Exercise and strength training can help boost your testosterone level.
The researchers found that men who reported often lifting or moving heavy objects at work had 46% higher sperm concentration and 44% higher total sperm count compared to those with fewer physical jobs. The men who reported more physical activity at work also had higher levels of the male sex hormone testosterone.
This all makes sense since doctors like those at our West Palm Beach area clinics who provide testosterone therapy for men have long known that rigorous exercise – particularly strength training – can help boost your testosterone levels – even in men who are already undergoing testosterone therapy.

Physical exercise raises your testosterone level by helping you shed pounds and boost your metabolism. Also, as you build lean muscle, that increase muscle craves testosterone and further increases your metabolism because even at rest, muscle needs energy.
Strength training also can help reduce stress which minimizes the release of stress hormones, such as cortisol, that reduce testosterone and stimulate the release of endorphins which can raise testosterone. This study published in the journal Human Reproduction adds further evidence that exercise and strength training can help boost your testosterone level and perhaps improve reproductive health.
However, if you live in and around the West Palm Beach area and have been diagnosed with low testosterone, the only medically proven way to bring your levels back into the normal range is with testosterone replacement therapy for men.
