I wrote about this before…

It is such a solid tip, that I figured it warranted another article.

There is a specific way to lift weights that has been shown in a study to boost Growth Hormone by up to 1,700% compared to normal lifting.

I think people get thrown off by the term Growth Hormone.

It’s not really a muscle-building thing.

Think of Growth Hormone as your “youth hormone”… It helps with fat loss and skin tone, etc.

hgh youth hormone keeps skin smooth and young

I like to point this out to women in particular.

Most women aren’t after massive growth, so they can be thrown off by the term.

Here are the main benefits of increasing GH:

  • Stimulates collagen production (good for skin and joints)
  • Preserves muscle
  • Speeds up fat loss

How do you lift weights to increase GH production?

The way to increase Growth Hormone is by slowing down the negative (eccentric) part of the movement.

I discuss it in detail here in this blog post I wrote a while back.

Slower Rep Speed for Greater Fat Loss?

The idea is to slowly lower the weight each rep.

Take 2-3 seconds when you lower the weight (explained in more detail in the post).

This is a quick tweak that can improve fat loss potential of your workouts.

Give it a try!

Note: This works particularly well when you are dieting hard to create a deficit.

diet and calorie deficit

Growth hormone will help you lose even more fat while PRESERVING muscle.

This is why in my men’s course, Visual Impact Muscle Building, I recommend slow lifting during the most intense fat loss phase.

This is also one of the reasons I recommend slow lifting in Visual Impact for Women, which emphasizes fat loss, strength and muscle tone without adding a bunch of mass.

And…

In Visual Impact Frequency Training, my strength training course, slow lifting is alternated with days of explosive training.
