View Full Version : water and GH

I read a little blurb about a study that was done. The study said that drinking lots of water (keeping your body saturated) during intense training sessions promotes the release of GH.

It didn't say why this is, just mentioned the study. What ya think?

I read the same blurb, I'd say it's the inaccurate application of science.

Dehydration can lower growth hormone responce among the other things it does to lower perfromance, like peak strength output. So someone who is well hydrated vs someone who is dehydrated the hydrated person will have a better growth hormone responce.

It would be inaccurate to say that drining water promotes growth hormone responce because if a person were hyrdated to begin with then drinking extra water isn't going to promote a growth hormone responce. The article should have said to drink plenty of water during your workout to maintain proper hydration to prevent a decrease in growth hormone responce.

It'll be the training that promotes the GH release and the water increasing fluidity or something. hydration wise.

Hm... While you're working out,your metabolism increases.By drinking water you flash the toxins much faster and you can have a small increase in gh.Nothing imprortant though. :o

Personally, don't know how you can stand not drinking water while you workout. I'd get dehydrated REAL quickly.

I gulp in between sets, but yeah it's a great idea. Keep your body hydrated.

You can hit yourself in the head with a hammer and get a GH response, too. Why not start doing that?

I jammed my finger between two 45's today. That must have been a huge GH release. I'm gonna be big and shredded tomorrow.
