Default Re: Exercise Decreases Depression --> Why?

I would think that, at least for guys, working out raises testosterone levels, and I would think that depressed guys often have low self esteem. So by working out and raising T-levels, you get both a psychological boost by looking better body-wise, and a chemical boost by the testosterone.
