Bodybuilders know one thing and one thing for sure, that one thing is that without putting the necessary time in the gym, they will never be able to build that bodybuilder competition-like body. However, this piece you are focusing on right now is going to ask you to buck the gym hitting tradition for a little while, then sit on your favorite chair and watch some television. That is due to the fact that the piece you are reading right now will be looking at the top seven bodybuilding movies of all time. So without any further interruption, let’s start out look at the top seven bodybuilding movies of all time with number seven. By the way, the reason behind choosing seven documentaries is that you will now have one to watch for every day of the week.
#7: Generation Iron (2013) (Documentary)
Several studies concluded that diets low in fat (under 15% of total calories) significantly decreased testosterone levels while diets higher in fat (above 30% of total calories) increased serum testosterone levels. Rather than continuing with this discussion I will provide a link to an article which covers the subject quite nicely. To simplify everything that I have said, it seems that one should not lower fat below 15% of daily calories unless they would like to face extreme testosterone deficiencies. Likewise, one should not increase fat to say 40% in order to increase testosterone. Although fat increases testosterone to a degree, it is important to remember that testosterone is only a small piece of the larger puzzle. There are many other hormones and factors involved in building muscle other than just testosterone. By increasing fat to extremely high levels, there will be less “space” for carbohydrates and protein, both of which are very important for aforementioned reasons.
