    Growth Hormone release and exercise

    Some time ago this question was asked. Here is some research that suggests that certain exercise will help elevante HGH. I also believe that there has been hair regrowth cited in injected HGH subjects. Have NOT seen this reported in a study here HGH is elevanted by exercise.

    Interesting!


    McCall, G. E., Byrnes, W. C., Fleck, S. J., Dickinson, A., & Kraemer, W. J. (1999). Acute and chronic hormonal responses to resistance training designed to promote muscle hypertrophy. Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology, 24, 96-107.

    <http://www-rohan.sdsu.edu/dept/coachsci/csa/vol81/dividred.gif>

    Weight-trained college men (N = 11) trained three times per week for 12 weeks (an average of 32 sessions). High-volume free weights and exercise-machine resistances were employed.

    Forearm flexor 1-RM strength improved by 25%. Hypertrophy in both classes of muscle fibers and overall muscle circumference was observed.

    Resting hormone concentrations and the patterns of acute exercise hormonal elevations during the fourth and eighth weeks were not changed by 12 weeks of training. Decreased plasma volume accounted for elevations in testosterone, insulin-like growth factor-I, and sex hormone-binding globulin during exercise. Growth hormone and cortisol remained significantly high when corrected for plasma volume losses. Only the acute exercise-induced growth hormone elevations were correlated with the magnitude of fiber hypertrophy following training.

    Implication. Growth hormone stimulated during resistance training influences muscle hypertrophy.

    But I can't because I'm on Atkins

    No, you can stay on as long as you like or can. When you get to the weight you want, you start adding health carbs such as veggies and then nomalize there.

    Works!

    Yeah Atkins works! I've been on it for around 3months now.

    I've reached a plateau right now with my weight loss which sucks. I think the only thing I can do is eat a few less calories and exercise more intensely. I'm also taking L-Carnitine and Coenzyme-q10 which Dr. Atkins recommends for helping a stall.

    I need to lose at least 40 more pounds so I'm working hard!

    The reason Atkins works is because I dont go around hungry. My girlfriend does weight watchers and if I had to eat what she ate, I'd be starving to ****ing death! She only takes in around 1500 calories/day!
    I eat big ass salads with Ranch and hunks of chicken or fish as big as I want. I also do some low carb pancakes and stuff like that when I need variety from the meat/eggs/lowcarbveggies

    On a day when I'm really hungry, I can eat up to 3,000 calories without gaining weight, as long as I stay under 30g carbs. If I stay at around 2000-2500 calories/day with exercise, I lose weight(very slow now but lost very fast first month)

    The bottom line is, to lose weight you gotta burn more calories than you take in. However, Atkins can make you do this without feeling like you are suffering.

    Vortex--How much do you weigh and what is your goal?

    What exercise do you do right now?

    Watch for those hidden carbs. Some of these guys play fast and loose with the carb counts. Sugar alchohol and the like.

    Best of luck!

    Hey Vortex, I do the Atkins thing too. I don't believe there is a faster 'safe' way to lose weight then Atkins and Exercise. But you've been on it for 3 months and still need to lose 40 more lbs? Maybe you should be doing more cardiovascular. I've found I can lose a pound at least every two days, if not faster, if I'm exercising.

    All the protein can be a bit harsh on your system. Really I don't recommend to anyone to be on it for more then three months at a time. But just keep taking your vitamins and drinking lots of water and you'll be fine.

    And yah, Bruce, you gotta be careful. No sugar, no alcohol. You really have to give up a lot of vices on this diet. But the results cant be beat.

    So whats this about growth hormone? It helps grow/maintain hair then? Exercise will help me with my hair loss?
    **** all that bull****! 1mg fin, 1-2 times a week!!
