Exercise That Stimulate the Growth Hormones

Exercises that stimulate the growth hormones must increase lactic acid production, focus on major compound lifts and must include cardio interval training.

Lactic acid is merely a residual waste product, which builds up in the body during extended bouts of exercise. During muscle contractions, the body has a difficult time flushing the latent lactic acid build up, over the course of an exercise, resulting in what athletes call "the burn". There has been a correlation between lactic acid production and growth hormone output. To increase production of lactic acid and increase the growth hormone output, I recommend extended supersets of traditional compound exercises.

A Basic Lactic Acid Superset consists of the following:

Perform 12 squats at a weight, which is your 12-repetition maximum. In other words, you could not possibly complete a 13th rep with the chosen weight).

Rest for 60 seconds.

Perform 12 chin-ups with a weight which is your 12 rep maximum.

Rest for 60 seconds.

Perform 12 dead lifts with a weight that is your 12 rep maximum. A dead lift is lifting a barbell off the ground from a stabilized bent over position.

Rest for 60 seconds.

Perform 12 dips with a weight that is your 12 reps maximum. This is usually performed in a gym with proper equipment.

Rest for 60 seconds.

Repeat the entire circuit 2 more times for a total of 3 circuits.

Focusing most of your training on compound exercises will stimulate the body to increase growth hormone production through the additional challenge presented by those multi-joint powerhouses - the heavier and more demanding the lift is, the more the body will respond with growth hormone production. Focus your leg training around squats, dead lifts and heavy lunges. Focus your chest, shoulder and triceps training around pressing variations (incline, decline, flat & overhead) and weighted dips. Focus your back training around weighted pull-ups, chin-ups, and rows.

Additionally, you can use interval training through cardio to produce a similar lactic acid build up effect and stimulate growth hormone production. To do this, I recommend using Interval Training.

You will choose an exercise. This exercise will be performed for 4 minute bouts. During this, you will alternate between 20 seonds of high intensity work and 10 seconds of low intensity "rest" work. Complete eight high-low bouts to complete a 4-minute session.
