3 Ways To Maximize Your Growth Hormone Production - Exercise

We all know that Growth Hormone has a TON of helps you build muscle, burn fat, increase bone density (very important as we age), and it's your body's signal to increase IGF-1 production, which is a HUGE driver of lean muscle mass development.

Obviously it's something we want to create as much of as we can. The problem is that as we age our HGH production decreases dramatically - which is why it gets harder and harder to get and keep muscle and burn fat.

It's also a major determinant in how fast we "age"...the lower the GH levels, the faster you get "old". (ever seen the really old dudes that are ripped? They have high levels of it natural or injected, either way, that's why they look like that.)

The good news is you can do it with some simple manipulations of your workout loads, tempos, and rest periods, and here are 3 ways to start boosting your GH levels with your workout tomorrow.

1. Use Shorter Rest Periods

If you're one of those guys who takes a 3-5 minute break between sets, you're not doing yourself any favors in the hormone department.

Research shows that shorter rest intervals triggers a higher hormonal response, so consider keeping your rest between sets to 60 second or less.

You can also incorporate giant sets with no rest between sets, then take a full 3-4 minute rest at the of the giant set to let your system fully recover before doing it again.

The no-rest between each exercise will create a big lactic acid buildup that triggers a big Growth Hormone response.

2. Use Higher Volume

The longer your muscles are under tension, the higher hormonal response. Using higher volume sets with heavy resistance really cranks up the GH output.

But how do you do high volume with heavy loads?

Pick a weight around 75% of your 1RM and perform 6-8 reps, then drop the weight by 30% and do another 15-20 reps.

The first part of the lift triggers the response to heavy loads, and the second half adds in the volume.


3. Lift Large Muscle Groups First

Bigger muscles create a bigger hormonal response. When lifting for hormone output, start with your legs, back, and chest as they are your largest muscle groups.

Work them and work them HARD! A few times a month train to absolute failure (make sure you've got a spotter) as that threshold is where you're recruiting the most muscle fibers and you create the biggest hormonal response to training.

Just make sure to get plenty of rest and nutrition post workout to recover.

These are 3 simple tips you can start using in your workout tomorrow to maximize your Growth Hormone production.

Hormone Replacement Therapy :: Any Feedback On HRT?

I was wondering if some of you can give me your feedback on HRT.  My gynecologist would like to put me on Prometrium 100 mg and Estradiol 1 mg.  I have not had a period for 10 months and had my hormones checked, I am perimenopausal.  I sleep 3 hours a night, hot flashes and anxiety with ache muscles.  I am thinking about going on HRT and trying this.  Please let me know if anyone is taking what I have been prescribed and how it worked or suggestions on being on HRT and how it changed you from the symptoms I am having.  My motivation for life has depleted and I want me back.

Hormone Replacement Therapy :: Water Retention

I am back on my full dose of HRT 1 week and am feeling myself, mentally the cloud has lifted and my energy level is back to normal.  However, I now remember one reason why I was trying to wean off, this  swelling, bloating and heartburn!  Uggh.  Any suggestions, lowering the dose seemed to get rid of it all, however, I was an emotional trainwreck!  Any one out there with the same problem and found a solution?  Drinking lots of water, will keep an eye on the sodium, and no spicy foods, other than that is there anything else?  Will talk with my doctor in a few weeks I have a visit scheduled.

Menopause :: Estrogen Hormone Replacement Therapy

Estrogen hormone replacement therapy is now less scary than it was in 2002, and more women like myself are willing to take a second look at it. As I've said, I honestly think it is beneficial for a lot of reasons. I personally use estrogen to help with vaginal dryness, brain fog, short-term memory issues, and to help with insomnia.

I honestly did not realize for many years how helpful it was with these symptoms. Of course, for me, these symptoms didn’t really manifest themselves to any significant degree until I reached actual menopause. Once we reach menopause (12 consecutive months without a menstrual cycle), our estrogen production in our body has decreased significantly. Hence, vaginal dryness, brain fog, short-term memory issues, and oh, the insomnia!

Hormone Replacement Therapy :: Bioidentical Better Than Standard HRT?

I have read that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is safer than the standard DRT which is derived from the urine of pregnant horses.

However people interested in this therapy need to be aware that they must still take a version manufactured by a trusted pharmaceutical firm. Apparently there is something going the rounds now where the so-called bio-identical hormones are compounded in a pharmacy.  This could be extremely risky, worse than standard HRT.  I don't know what countries might be affected, the warning I read was in newsletter originating in the US, so hopefully it isn't even something most of us need to worry about, but thought I should bring up the topic as it has been mentioned a few times lately by those of us interested in finding safe ways to improve our bone density.

Prostate Cancer :: Hot Flushes - Hormone Therapy

 Here are my own observations at week five into LH hormone therapy.

> After a faltering start I settled into three or so mild hot flushes a day with some at night.

> The worst part for me is that shortly after the onset of a flush my memory is impaired and logical thought becomes confused. I could live with the fuzzy feeling in my head if that was all. This impairment lasts about one hour after the flush subsides. So I cannot do much sensible work or play the piano without making a hash of it and frequently forgetting how to continue the piece I am playing.

> I have found the advice to keep cool helpful. So I wear lighter clothes than formerly and try to keep a feeling of being slightly cold. I don't like that but it is better than a flush.

> I have accepted the advice of many that exercise is helpful. Amongst other benefits it is held to assist in limiting hot flushes. So in addition to my afternoon stroll with my wife (I.5 to 2 mph) I now take two brisk walks a week on my own. (3 to 3.5 mph - I used to manage over 4 mph). Again picking up on advice relating to hormone treatment I have added home devised power exercises with chest expander spring and hurrying up and down the stairs six times in succession. Plus, pelvic floor exercises in anticipation of radiotherapy.

> I found that stress, warming exercise excluded, frequently brings on a flush. 

DISCOVERY or just something I had missed.

> I have found that if during a flush if I do some exercise that I know from experience will be enough to warm me, when I stop I cool down normally and so cut short the flush. (I must cool down. If I stay warm the flush takes off again within a few minutes.) My flushes normally last about 90 minutes. For me the effective exercising is

>> six  times rapidly up and down stairs.

>> five minutes brisk walking

> If I do this exercising within about 60 seconds of the start of the flush I avoid the memory and logic problems. (Any delay and the problems last the usual hour after the end of the exercising / flush. )

Does anyone use a similar "cure" for a flush? Does it work for anyone else?

PCOS - 7 Miscarriages - Massive Hair Growth On My Face And Pregnancy

So, to being, I'm 25. I've had seven miscarriages so far and I really don't want to lose this one. I've finally found a stable enough relationship with my fiancee who has been super supportive through all of this. Also, I have an advanced case of PCOS that causes massive hair growth on my face and other parts of my body, so I have an overproduction of testosterone.

About a week or so ago, I found out I was 3 weeks pregnant. I had my usual period but then the bleeding wasn't stopping so I called my doctor, they asked me to take a pregnancy test, it came out positive. They had me follow up with another one the following day and it too was positive. They had me come in and do blood draws.

The first draw returned HCG levels of 103. That was Wednesday of last week. On Friday last week, I went in for another blood draw and the HCG level was at 150. So it is increasing, but I am still bleeding. It's not the normal implantation blood which is darker in color, it's a brighter red like a period.

Sometimes it's heavier than others on some days and other days it's lighter. Even throughout the day it changes how heavy or light it is. I'm so confused and it's causing me undue stress which is not good for the baby.

I've only had one day where there was tissue passed and that scared the ever living daylights out of me. I really want this baby and I'm trying everything I can to keep it. I've been taking prenatal vitamins every morning, I quit drinking caffeinated drinks all together, I've been drinking more water, eating more fruit everything you're supposed to do to help the baby grow strong.

The doctors tell me not to worry but because of my past history, I can't help but. I'm going in for another blood draw today and I'm worried as all hell that it's going to come back even lower and that they will tell me I'm going to lose this baby.

Anyone else experience anything like this where the bleeding increases and decreases throughout the day?

Hormone Replacement Therapy Doctor? HRT Clinic MD Or An Endocrinlogist MD?

Are hormone replacement therapy doctors are doing the job of an endocrinologist, or is it the same, or is there an advantage of one or the other?

Since year 2000, at the age of 50, doctors and blood tests I have told me I have low testosterone?

(at the time I went to an Internal Medicine doctor for low energy and exhaustion and he said testosterone was below 200)
I am looking into finding a doctor that will prescribe something more effective than a 150 mg testosterone cypionate injection 1 x each 2 weeks, that I get from a conservative family MD.

I recently looked into getting help through the Internet for hormone replacement therapy.

At this point, I am not sure what to do.

Does anyone have good solid advise, not strongly influenced by money profit?

I have read some about the side effects, however, can anyone advise me or comment on any of the following medicines recommended for me by the online HRT clinic doctor?

Here is the list:

150mg testosterone cypionate 1 x a week
Anastrozole 0.5 po 2x/week
HCG 500 IU SQ 2x/week
Sermorelin Forte 18mg for GH deficiency
DHEA 5mg
Fish oil 3,000mg
vitamin D3 5,000IU/day with vitamin K2 45 mcg take with fatty healthy food.

This online HRT Clinic cannot use medical insurance, because of the prescriptions.

I have not found any negative feedback on this Clinic, as I have with some others.

At this time, unless something else comes up, I am going to get an appointment with an Endocrinologist.

However, my concern is that doctors will not prescribe medicines and doses of medicines, (medicines that will work for me) that are not approved by the FDA and that are not covered by insurance companies.

Now, I feel exploited by the online HRT MD's, because of the costs, and cut short by regular MD's, because of the FDA laws and the insurance companies.

My other position is (the position some are counting on) to pay whatever it takes to feel better, and I will if I cannot find another solution. I want to increase the quality of life for myself and others, without anymore physical suffering/mistakes, and without anymore financial suffering/mistakes.
