Growth hormone is released during deep sleep and while we exercise. It’s essential for tissue repair, muscle building, bone density and healthy body composition. To boost your growth hormone, we recommend: sleep, exercise, good nutrition, less stress and laughter! In order to optimize body composition, we recommend very specific training that can be done at home or with a personal trainer at Clear Medicine.
The benefits of exercise on your hormones is not only limited to burning calories and building muscle, we also know exercise reduces the hormones that interfere with fat loss, boosts mood, burns fat and balances insulin and also controls appetite and reduces inflammation.
Our hormone optimizing workout tips are: keep it short and sweet, give every workout your all, complete your exercises with a short rest between each circuit and work multiple muscle groups with each strength training session, walking or interval cardio is best, use yoga for its hormone boosting effects, consume the right nutrition before and after your workouts.
