Human growth hormone (hGH) is necessary for:
- Growth when we are young
- Maintenance and repair and of our body after stresses such as exercise
- Combating the adverse effects of aging
You can increase hGH without a prescription. From this article The Exercise-Induced Growth Hormone Response in Athletes:
"Resistance training results in a significant exercise-induced growth hormone (EIGR) .…An exercise intensity above lactate threshold and for a minimum of 10 minutes appears to elicit the greatest stimulus to the secretion of hGH."
"A growing body of evidence suggests that higher intensity exercise is effective in eliciting beneficial health, well-being and training outcomes. In a great many cases, the impact of some of the deleterious effects of ageing could be reduced if exercise focused on promoting the EIGR."
High intensity training will naturally increase hGH and slow the aging process. It’s the type of training we do at Austin Personal Trainers and New Orleans Personal Trainers. People of any age and any level of fitness can do this. We conduct HIT workouts on MedX equipment. The equipment’s special medical rehab features make it safer and more accommodating to those with limiting conditions. Aging is inevitable, however with our program it wiil not happen as quickly.
