If you are like most married men with kids, hanging out with your guy friends on the weekend is something that you seldom get to do. If you are lucky enough to have a man cave where your friends can join you in watching the Cowboys game you are one lucky man. Spending time with other guys and watching sports has been shown to increase testosterone, especially when the team you are cheering for wins.
A study conducted by a graduate student at the University of Utah found that testosterone levels rise in the fans of winning teams. Just by watching your favorite sports team compete you’re endowed with testosterone surges similar to those of the players themselves. The effect is even more positive when your team wins. You receive some of the same testosterone boosting benefits of an NFL player without the risk of injury, so it really is a win-win. Amazingly, if you’re an extremely loyal fan you can experience a rise in testosterone simply by anticipating an upcoming game. Watching your favorite teams from the comforts of your man cave is sure to release stress and provide a nice get a way from the pressures of family life.
