It’s been a known fact for quite some time that the players experience surges in their testosterone depending on how they and their teammates are performing.
If they have a great game, they have higher testosterone.
Have your proverbial butt handed to you, and your testosterone drops significantly.
But they’ve now found that fans who watch the games have similar testosterone reactions as the players on their teams.
This isn’t a problem for men who route for the team that’s winning.
Studies have shown that testosterone increases after watching the game if your team won.
So if your team is on a winning streak, your testosterone levels are probably going to remain slightly elevated.
