There has been a lot of research into GH (Growth Hormone) and the effects that this hormone has on the body.
Here are just a few effects GH has on the body:
- Building lean muscle
- Breaking down body fat
- Endurance and recovery after exercise
- Increased Energy
- Improved sleep
The main point we are looking at today is whether high intensity exercise will increase your GH levels which in turn increases your muscle mass as well as all the other positive effects this hormone has on the body. Here is a review of an article by Wesley C Hymer, Richard E Grindeland, Bradley C Nindl, and William J Kraemer about Growth Hormone Variants and Human Exercise.
I would be interested to hear what you think of the article and also what your point of view is to the question does exercise increase your GH levels.
