  • Weight training

    Weight training causes micro-tears to the muscles being trained; this is generally known as microtrauma. These micro-tears in the muscle contribute to the soreness felt after exercise, called delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). It is the repair to these micro-trauma that result in muscle growth. Normally, this soreness becomes most apparent a day or two after a workout. However, as muscles become adapted to the exercises, soreness tends to decrease

  • Injecting


    ***Be careful not to touch the needle to ANYTHING. Think about it, you are injecting deep in to your body. Any foreign particles will be transferred deep in your tissue and you risk a nasty infection.

    *Get all bubbles out of the needle - flick it until they rise to the top and then push them through the needle - make sure you get them completely out of the needle as well - don't worry about the liquid dripping down the needle and don't even wipe it as it makes for great lubrication.

    *In the injection spot - for glute you will look down on the 'cheek' and imagine splitting it into 4 quadrants, you would inject into the upper most outer quadrant. For the leg, if you were sitting down you will inject into the outer part of the leg (but more on top, not on the side) where you have the most 'meat'

    *Clean the site with alcohol and you are ready to inject

    *Quickly pierce the skin and steadily push the needle into the muscle. Push in smoothly until you have but a couple millimeters left of the needle (you never inject all the way in as you want to make sure some is still visible in case the needle should break off and you need to retrieve it)

    *Aspirate the syringe - pull back slightly on the plunger - you will see one of two things. (A). You will see a couple small air bubbles that when you stop applying pressure upward on the plunger will readily go back into the muscle or (B). Droplets of blood. (A) being the obviously favorable one. If there is blood you must pull out, switch needles and start over.

    *If all is well you may begin injecting. Push in slowly - you will come to find that you can 'listen' to your body and it will let you know how much it is willing to receive at once - when I inject myself I apply consistent pressure to the plunger but I go in only as fast or slow as my muscle wants to at that time. Going too fast will potentially result in an abscess. When you have completed this, wait a few seconds and then pull out and take your alcohol swab and firmly press down and massage the site to make sure everything stays in the muscle and the massage will also prevent soreness in the morning. You may bleed just a little bit, so it helps to tape the alcohol soaked cotton ball to your injection site.

    Miscellaneous Tips:

    *If you are self-injecting, it helps to stretch out first. If you are poking yourself on the right cheek, use your right hand to poke, and support (under) the needle with your left hand. It is not the easiest thing to do, but it can be done.

    *When beginning, limit injections to 3 CC's at a time for glutes, 2 CC's for thighs and 1 - 1.5 CC's for all other spot injections

    *Rotate injection spots. This will keep your receptors fresh. So right glute, right delt, right leg, left leg, left delt left glute - this will give you ample time off in between. Make sure you dont hit an injection spot more than once per wk - you are using 6 sites so you should be fine

    Rotating injection sites will also keep you from building scar tissue

    *Injections are great after a shower so the muscle is relaxed and it also helps to roll the syringe in your hand or run under hot water to heat the liquid to make it easier on you.

    ***ALWAYS wash hands before injecting

    Be safe!

  • Growth Hormone

    G by G
    Growth Hormone


    Growth Hormone is a protein hormone that is synthesized and secreted by cells called somatotrophs in the pituitary. It controls and/or effects many physiologic processes, including muscle growth and fat metabolism. When it is generated within the body, it is called endogenous – and when it is administered from an outside source it is called exogenous.

    Growth Hormone, like many other hormones has both direct effects (acting directly on tissues and cells) and indirect effects (stimulating the release or synthesis of a hormone, like IGF-1, which will then in turn effect tissues and cells on its own).

    Muscle cells have both Growth Hormone receptors as well as IGF-1 receptors. When growth hormone or IGF-1 is introduced into muscle cells, more cells are created and existing cells are enlarged. These responses are known as hyperplasia and hypertrophy, and are the processes that contribute to the growth of additional muscle tissue.
    Growth Hormone also has the ability to directly influence Fat-Loss, as fat cells have Growth Hormone receptors. When Growth Hormone is introduced into a fat cell, the result is that the fat cell is then more readily used as energy. This process is known as lipolysis, typically called “burning fat”, which is simply the conversion of fat into energy.

    However, while muscle cells possess both Growth Hormone as well as IGF¬1 receptors, allowing Growth Hormone to have a direct as well as indirect effect, fat cells do not have an IGF-1 receptor. IGF-1, which is stimulated by Growth Hormone production, works in a totally independent manner to burn fat in the body by enhancing protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism.

    Thus, Growth Hormone has both direct as well as indirect effects on promoting muscle growth, and fat loss.

    Finally, based on anecdotal reports from people experienced with growth hormone, results often take 6-8 weeks to manifest. At the 6-week point, athletes typically report that results are beginning to show, but by week 12 (and beyond), the increase in muscle mass and fat loss are nothing short of amazing. This is why athletes often stay on this compound for a minimum of two months, but usually closer to three or four months at a time.
