3 ways to naturally boost your body's muscle-building ability
Growth hormone is one of the most powerful substances in the human body. When levels surge, muscles grow and fat burns. No wonder athletes and actors are always trying to buy the stuff. Unfortunately, they also get busted all the time. To keep yourself out of jail and get great results, try manipulating your levels naturally.
HOW TO DO IT
- 1.) Get at least eight hours of sleep per night. Growth hormone levels skyrocket during deep sleep.
- 2.) Perform multiple sets (three or more) per exercise, using short rest periods (around one minute)—GH spikes when you're breathing heavily.
- 3.) Drink a carb- and protein-rich shake, ideally in a 2:1 ratio, 15-20 minutes after a workout. After sleep, this is your second-biggest GH surge of the day.
