how much does test increase for lifters
does anyone know how about how much more test natural lifters produce than nonlifters. or how much more test you will produce after squats, deads etc. just thought it would be cool to know

I know, but the answer is going to seem totally useless to you. It is expressed in nmol/L. This will vary from person to person, it also has diurnal variations, which are normal fluctuations throughout the day. Researchers call this a significant increase based on a statistical measure (Alpha Level). But, yes, resistance trained individuals usually do have significantly higher serum testosterone concentrations.

Cool. But you didn't answer his question. You should have just blurted out a number followed by the unit of measurement. IE: 250 nmol/L for squater vs. your buddy who never lifts who has 20 nmol/L

One study showed a 12nmol/L increase from pre to post exercise. This study used 8 exercises with a 10RM and 1 minute recovery. A wide variety of protocols can increase test levels, and each protocol will have a different effect on serum testosterone levels . Thats the best I can do.
