Do women who are physically fit create more testosterone than women who are only as active as the average person?

Asked by Bronny (714 points ) March 18th, 2010

I am a big into fitness and working out etc, and I have noticed a pattern in my strength training that whenever I plateau and go up in weights, up in reps, or make it harder in anyway, I get bursts of adrenaline and feel like I could tear things apart with my teeth. I feel like I might even waddle around like those big beefy guys with humongous thigh muscles.

I have heard about endorphins etc, but I can’t be the only one who’s blood runs fast and hot during a work out?

When you work out, you do produce more testosterone. It’s a fact.

There is a saying that, if you want to get built, work out your legs b/c even if you want bigger arms, or chest, or whatever, your legs are the largest muscle in your body, and stimulating them will cause you to produce more testosterone.

The more you work out your body, the more test you will naturally create.

So I’m assuming the “fit” person works out more than the “average” person, and it would be safe to say that they produce more testosterone. Guy or girl.

I wouldn’t worry unless you start packin’. If the little bald man in the boat starts to leave the confines of the boat in a big way, you may want to ease up.

I kid you not. Check out some images of those body building chicks who use steroids and male hormones. It’s one thing when you’re man says, “Someone’s happy to see me” and another thing when he says “Wow someone is OBVIOUSLY HAPPY to see me!”
An interesting study as well to see how the secondary sex characteristics are formed “in utero.”

Well I dont take roids or male hormones and have never checked out “packages” of the women that do on the front of body building mags…is it that bad?

mrrich724's avatar

It looks like my weewee when I was a child. It can get bad!

mrrich724's avatar

But if you are doing it naturally, it probably won’t get that far!

SeventhSense's avatar

Well maybe only guys check out bizarre shit on the internet but just for shits and giggles look up female bodybuilders nude.

I have never noticed my clitoris morphing into a phallic shape, no.

@SeventhSense oooook i’ll go look…. curiousity gets the best of me on this one.

SeventhSense's avatar

But it’s really not something to worry about both sexes have naturally occurring estrogen and testosterone. It’s really only when you take hormones. And there have been studies that have indicated that testosterone may not be the aggressive culprit that was once imagined. researchers said that it was a deficiency of testosterone, rather than its excess, that could lead to all the negative behaviors normally associated with the androgen.

@SeventhSense hmmm great point there, dear.

Bronny's avatar

woah so the search for female clit/penis combos has left me quite shaken. i noticed nothing unusual about the privates, in fact, that was the only part that still had retained feminine qualities. i feel very disgusted right now.

@SeventhSense I just looked at some looks like men in bikinis- what are you talking of (link)? what did @Bronny see?

SeventhSense's avatar

Not for the faint and NOT SAFE FOR WORK. GRAPHIC NUDITY
It is fascinating though to see how the clitoris is like the glans of the penis and the labia are like the scrotum. In fact the skin of the labia and the scrotum already have the same crinkly appearance naturally when they contract.
She’s an extreme example and she may have always had a big clit. It’s like her clit became gigantic….although most guys do like do like some outwards sign of arousal…just not this much!

those people are very confusing to look at. i feel so strange inside.

Bronny's avatar

physical appearance was not really what i was talking about. i was referring to the caveman surge to eat raw meat and tear the heads off of chickens or creeps.

trailsillustrated's avatar

@Bronny ha we know, but just had to ask…I couldn’t figure out what @SeventhSense meant so had to be shown ew

trailsillustrated's avatar

ha thats a tranny in those pix, seventh

Bronny's avatar

i know its so strange huh? i think shes just on steroids cuz there are tons of women out there like that. it’s really disturbing.

SeventhSense's avatar

@trailsillustrated
No she has a fully functioning vagina. Please don’t make me post more pictures or video. The clitoris enlarges when steroids are taken.

ChaosCross's avatar

Hmm, I’ll keep that in mind.

Why on earth would a woman want an increase in testosterone?

SeventhSense's avatar

^ Bodybuilding. Athletes can be like drug addicts. They will destroy themselves for their passion.

galileogirl's avatar

So we are talking about addicts

SeventhSense's avatar

I guess it depends on your view. They feel it’s warranted and necessary for their sport.
Are the risks are worth the rewards?- males hair loss, gonads shrunk
women- male facial features and enlarging of the clitoris.
They both seem unnatural but extremely unnatural for a woman. In fact she’s becoming more male with every injection. But Denise is very popular appparently
