Will Raising GH Help Me Build Muscle Mass
I’m reading a lot lately about training techniques that supposedly raise your natural growth hormone (GH) to help you gain weight / build muscle mass.
Techniques such as super sets, drop sets, static holds, high volume, very high reps, pumping, and circuit training are claiming to be the way to “naturally” raise this hormone in the body.
People are recommending to train in such a way that will give you that “deep burning sensation” in the muscle, which allegedly is an indication that lactic acid and growth hormone is being released.
Now, those that believe in this think that this GH release and elevation in the body will help accelerate the muscle building process.
Well, true, growth hormone DOES help in the gaining of muscle weight…….but when raised in high dosages.
Here’s the real world truth that these individuals are either unaware of or are ignoring:
The body’s natural GH production is from 1 IU to 2 IU per day, at most, even during a weight training workout.
However, it takes at least 4 IU a day to see a real difference in any muscle you may build.
That’s more than DOUBLE the amount of GH that your body can naturally produce (without drugs), regardless of how much of a “burn” youre feeling or how many super sets, drop sets, or circuit training sessions you perform.
Many confuse feeling a burn in the muscles while training with stimulating muscle mass growth.
Others think that getting an incredible pump is an indication that they are putting the muscle building wheels into motion.
Now, dont get me wrong.
Any type of exercise, whether it gives you are burn or pump, or not, is excellent and must be done if you are serious about gaining muscle weight.
However, the issue I want to clarify here is that it is becoming more and more popular lately to create hardgainer/muscle mass building programs around the basis of raising the bodys natural GH (growth hormone) levels.
Entire books and programs are being written for those that want to gain muscle weight fast on the foundation of this misconception.
Always keep in mind the 2 biggest and most important factors to build muscle mass and grow:
1. Intense weight training to stimulate the growth of more muscle mass
2. Eating the correct calorie amount for your particular body type / metabolism, regardless of what type of calories they are
Focus on those 2 factors and I guarantee you that youll gain muscle weight 1000 times faster than those that are trying to solely raise their bodys natural GH.
So, next time you read some article about someone claiming that you can burn fat from naturally raising your bodys growth hormone, you now know that in the REAL WORLD it won’t work to help you gain / build muscle weight!
