Huw much muscle will I put on by using Human Growth Hormone?
One of the most frequently asked questions by novice users is how much muscle they will put on by using growth hormone.
Each person’s body responds differently to somatropin and the results depend on many factors. If done in optimal conditions one can put on between 20% – 30% of lean muscle during a 4-5 months long HGH therapy. The results become noticeable after about 2 months of use.
The amount of muscle gained by using HGH depends on many factors including one’s daily physical strain (workout), genetics, diet, age, quality and quantity of sleep, lifestyle, previous usage of steroids or HGH, etc.
By a very rough estimate an overall healthy first time HGH user who is in good shape, works out 3-5 times per week, sleeps at least 7 hours per night and eats a protein rich diet can expect to gain between 20 – 30 percent of muscle mass within 4-5 months. Or if I put it differently – at the dose of 4IU per day, growth hormone will help an already active individual push past his previous muscle building limit by 20% to 30%.
Results from the first HGH cycle are always the most drastic – no subsequent cycle will match the success of the initial one. This might be because:
- In initial cycle the body is surprised by the high levels of HGH (and consequently IGF-1). By the time it develops the ability to control such levels of HGH/IGF, the muscle ceiling has already expanded by 20% – 30%.
- After the initial HGH cycle (or steroid use) the muscle growth “ceiling” is already pretty high. The body is designed to retain just enough muscle as is needed for the person’s daily work routines. Excess muscle is gradually removed.
- An active individual using growth hormone to build muscle eventually reaches his “muscle ceiling” (his personal best) during every HGH cycle, but to him the result might not feel that impressive after the first time – he has seen it before.
First time HGH users
If your goal is to build muscle and this is your first time using HGH you are in it for some good times. Nothing gives a man greater workout motivation as being able to push through your previous muscle building limit. HGH will give you that.
