What is HGH response to resistance exercises?

There are many studies about exercises and GH secretion. Kraemer and Godfrey [7,10] have conducted several experiments to explore growth hormone response on different heavy-resistance exercise protocols. The factors they examine include the exercises heaviness, number of exercises and sets, duration of each set, rest time between sets.

Based on these experiments, we can outline training principles for GH secretion:

o Basic exercises induce better hormonal response than isolated ones,

o High volume training is better than low volume one. Big number of sets and short pauses between them is great for HGH

o Do 40-50 sets during 1-1,5 hours.

o Don’t eat carbohydrates within 30 minutes after training, when HGH level is high.
