How To Increase Growth Hormone

To build muscle and burn fat at the same time, it’s absolutely critical to understand how to increase growth hormone .

Released from your pituitary gland, growth hormone (GH) production peaks around puberty, and then slowly fades away as we age and plays a key role in the maintenance of muscle, bone mass and the balance of body fat.

This hormone is so powerful that even WITHOUT following an exercise program and healthy diet, it can build muscle and burn fat!

Landmark Science In How To
Increase Growth Hormone

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that a small group of elderly men (aged between 61 and 81) who were given injected GH treatment showed an increase in both muscle and bone mass…

…AND reduced body fat at the same time.

Another study from Denmark found that a 9-week program designed to naturally stimulate GH release resulted in strength gains 300% over normal increases!

Adding to that, men following the program increase arm strength by a whopping 37% compared with only 9% by the “control group” who only followed a “non-GH-stimulation” program.

What’s important is that these growth hormone increases were activated NOT by injected hormone, but by completely natural means.

These breakthrough scientific studies prove that when you
discover how to increase growth hormone for more muscle, it can pay you big dividends in a short period of time.

Natural Tips For How To Increase Growth Hormone
To Build Muscle And Burn Fat Fast

Follow these simple tips to naturally enhance your body’s own production of GH and watch your muscle-building results skyrocket…

1. Increase Growth Hormone With “Shortcut” Workouts

Studies show that the longer you train, the more GH is released into your body to build more muscle due to the build up of lactic acid in the muscle, a prime activator for increasing growth hormone.

Unfortunately, long training sessions also increase the hormone cortisol which canibalizes muscle tissue.

Sounds like you’re screwed, right?

Fortunately there’s a “shortcut” for triggering a natural growth hormone release in a shorter period of time.

By simply reducing your rest time in between exercise sets, your body builds up more lactic acid in the muscle tissue.

This triggers the release of growth hormone in a much shorter time period.

In fact, the shorter your rest periods, the more lactic acid you’ll produce and the greater your GH response.

Keep your workout rest periods under one minute to naturally increase growth hormone and build more muscle.

2. Bodybuilding-Style Training Stimulates More Growth Hormone

Higher volume bodybuilding training is characterized by higher repetition ranges, commonly 8-12 reps per exercise set.

These higher repetition counts are what help to increase lactic acid in the muscle tissue, which is why you feel more of a burn in the muscle toward the end of your set.

You want that burn!  Keep your reps at 8-12 but don’t be afraid to go much, much higher.

Some “old school” bodybuilders used to do as many as 100 reps in one set!

3. How To Increase Growth Hormone Even MORE With A “Squeeze”

An advanced bodybuilding technique that was a favorite of Arnold Schwarzenegger was the coveted “contraction squeeze”.

When you’re lifting the weight, stop momentarily at the peak contraction point (for bicep curls as an example, this would be in the “up” position) and squeeze your target muscle for 1-2 seconds before lowering the weight and repeating for the next rep.

This resulting lactic acid response from this contraction squeeze is like a shot of nitrous oxide into a car engine and you’ll inject more growth hormone into your body to build muscle fast.

    Would a “sprint” circuit workout do the same thing as higher reps? I use heavy-enough weight that my muscles are ‘spent’ at 6-8 reps, but I immediately go to another movement that involves the same muscle group, and ‘rotate’ with 3 or 4 different movements, for 2.5 to 3.5 minutes — in a “sprint”. Then I take a 30 to 45 second rest (and a sip or 2 of water), then another “sprint”. I do 4 “sprints” for one muscle group, then do a similar circuit for another major muscle group. I do as many reps as needed, on the last round of the circuits, to reach ‘total fatique’. And I also use the ‘squeeze’ at the ‘top’ of each rep.
    I AM getting very good growth and strength increase, but I would like to know if you feel like this is effectively encouraging GH increase. I feel like I am getting very good VO-Max numbers, but have no equipment to test for that…

    Thanks for all of your GREAT information and research!

    Wow, That’s news to me. All my life I had thought that to gain muscle mass, I had to lift heavy and less than 10 reps. That’s a paradigm shift. I had heard that you lift high reps for definition, now I am hearing that I need to lift high reps to gain muscle mass. In one way, it’s easy to believe. Before I formally started lifting weights, back in HS, I used to do 100 push-ups every day in one set. I developed great pecs. Maybe that will work for other muscles. On the other hand, I used to run marathons, and I never developed muscle mass on my legs until I stopped running and started lifting heavy. I guess “high reps” is somewhere in-between the two extremes.

    you’re right. however, since legs are used everyday, they need a lot more stimulus. try doing lots of reps WITH high weight. they’ll get massive

    Jeff,I’ve been reading your blog for a long time, and your everyday hints and tips are THE BEST there is on the internet!
    Keep up the good work Maestro :)))

    Great to see the program listed as it should be. Thanks for specifying what I’ve already been “sorta” doing.

    Jeff I have a question.
    I read about the burn causing gh to be sent out to cool the burn. Can you use the burning this way. Do wall sits so my legs are on fire and do bicep curls at the same time. Will the gh go straight to the legs or will some go to the bicep on the way? Or do left lunge, calf raise, shrug, right lunge,calf raise, shrug for 1 rep. Do as many reps as possible to get the burn then do a great chest routine like optimum anabolics and use the gh caused by lunges for your chest?

  9. Jason says:

    Jeff I also have a question?
    If I were to lower my rest periods between sets to under a minute I would end up finishing my workout in probably half an hour. I’m wondering if I should add another exercise to my workouts?
    I currently do one muscle group a day 4 exercises with 4 sets of each exercise. Do you think adding a 5th exercise would be beneficial? Anyways thanks for all the tips, they really have helped increase my knowledge.
