Get Yourself Some Growth Hormone With Strength Training and Lose 10 - 20 Years
Author: Gen Wright
There is a very special substance that is a protein hormone that has magical powers in our bodies and has a direct association with the speed that we age. This substance is critical for tissue repair, muscle growth, healing, brain function, physical and mental health, bone strength, energy and metabolism. In short, it is very important to every aspect of our life.Human growth hormone (HGH) has been labeled the "master hormone" and is essential for maintaining youth-like health. By the age of 40 we produce only 10 percent of the amount of HGH that we produced in our 20's and by age 50 HGH production has usually ceased entirely.Although during youth growth hormone stimulates the development of the human body, in adults instead of causing us to grow bigger, HGH is a chemical messenger for repair and maintenance. It keeps muscles from getting weaker, reduces accumulation of body fat, improves immune response, and keeps skin smooth and elastic. In other words it slows the physical changes that occur with aging.As scientists and researchers uncover more insights into how aging occurs and the causes linked to its seemingly inevitable symptoms, we face the unique opportunity of determining how fast it happens to us. And the earlier we begin preparing for those approaching years, the better we can minimize their impact on us.It's no secret that both a proper exercise program that includes strength training exercise benefits people of all ages. Emerging science is also revealing that this type of exercise triggers the release of key anti aging hormones such as HGH which can reverse muscle and bone loss and make our bodies work better, become leaner and stay younger.When muscles are challenged to stay strong with strength training exercise HGH is stimulated which renews and repairs old degenerated cells and tissue throughout the body. New tissue is rebuilt that is younger, stronger and healthier which rejuvenates the entire body improving overall health and vitality.For all of this to happen the exercise program must be performed at the right intensity, which means it must be strenuous and sustained enough to tire the muscles out properly. Not all types of exercise will stimulate the production of HGH; low intensity level activities such as walking raise the heart rate but do not stimulate the release of HGH.The focus is not on endless hours of aerobic exercise (jogging, swimming, cycling etc), but on the incredible benefits of anaerobic exercise on the body's hormone release system. Short bursts - lasting 10 to 30 seconds - of intense activity from strength training or interval training exercise can induce your body to naturally release HGH growth hormone by up to 500%. The incredible amount of this "fitness hormone" stimulated by exercise on a regular and consistent basis has the ability to banish 10 -20 years of aging from our body.You will need to build up to this level of exercise, ideally under the guidance of a fitness professional. Learn how to exercise harder (though not longer). Far and away, the most important thing you can do to offset the aging process is exercise.All it takes is some common sense and for you to make a few life-changing choices. Now is the time to nurture and protect the only body you will ever have. You can easily restore your looks, health, energy and physical stamina to youthful levels no matter what your age.
