Learn how to trigger the key hormones and muscles that make you catnip for women

Your hormone-high workout

When it comes to impressing women on a biological level, a good physique is only part of the equation. The rest comes from the hormones she can’t help but find attractive. So former British powerlifting champion and exercise scientist David Lewis (embodyfitness.co.uk) has created a circuit that uses compound moves to elevate testosterone, aldosterone, serotonin and dopamine – the key ‘attraction’ hormones, according to the Journal of Experimental Psychology. It also cranks up muscular tension, creating vasodilation (dilation of the blood vessels) and vascularity (vein definition), which The Biological Basis of Human Behaviorreports are the most attractive visual cues to women. Use it wisely: MH won’t be held responsible for the consequences.

01deadlift

Trap bar deadlift

4 sets of 10 reps

This is the patriarch of compound moves; it hits every muscle, particularly your abs. Use the high-handle bar to reduce the chance of injury to your back. Push your hips forwards to lift the bar as explosively as you can. Keep your head up as you lower it to the floor.

Swiss bar bench press

4 sets of 10 reps

Using a Swiss bar delivers more pec development – she’ll appreciate the extra effort. Slowly lower the bar to your chest and hold for 2sec. Press it up as fast as you can. this drives lactic acid to your arms, immediately improving vascularity and driving up testosterone.

03sprint

Weighted vest sprint

4 sets of 50m or 30 seconds

The pain starts here, but this will elicit a metabolic response, flooding your skin with oxygenated blood and endorphins, while strengthening the skin’s collagen bonds. Strap on a weighted vest and run at full pace for 30sec. Honest sweat beats any anti-ageing cream.

Viking press

4 sets of 15 reps

Now to harness some Norse power. Hold the dumbbells at your shoulders. Aim to make the press as explosive as possible and lower slowly as you can. This lifts your core temperature, increasing production of the pheromones proven to turn women’s heads.

Garhammer raise

4 sets of 25 reps

To finish, your obliques: the muscle that impresses her most, according to a survey of female gym goers. Hang from a chin-up bar; lift your knees as high as possible. Lower slowly, pointing your toes. the slower you go, the more positive hormones you’ll exude.
