And: The first group was also given a garlic supplement. At the end, garlic-fed rats had a greater level of testosterone.
Also: They had a higher nitrogen balance. This chemical balance leads to muscle growth.
These results suggest that dietary supplementation with... garlic alters hormones associated with protein anabolism by increasing testicular testosterone and decreasing plasma corticosterone in rats fed a high protein diet.Garlic supplementation increases testicular testosterone
And: As a result, more muscle tissue and strength will be developed. A positive nitrogen balance helps muscle synthesis.
Thus: Garlic presumably would have a positive effect on weightlifting in humans.
Caution: Rats fed an extremely high amount of garlic had cell death in their testicles.
