"GH" training program
I just recived my new muscle and fitness and they're workout for the month is this workout aimed at elevated Growth Hormone release. It looks like over training to me.Heres the mon week 1 & 3 routine. What do you guys think....
MONDAY: Chest & Tri's
Bench Press*: 5 sets @ 8reps
Incline DB*: 5 sets @ 8 reps
Cable Crossover*: 5 sets @ 10reps
One Arm Machine Flye**: 5 sets @ 10reps
Tricep Dip*: 5sets @ 8reps
Lying Ext.* 5sets @ 8reps
One arm rev. grip Press down**: 5sets @ 10reps
*On the last 2 sets of each exercise do exercise til failure then rack the weight, rest 15 sec and then go until failure
**Go until failure and then have a spotter help you get 2-3 more reps.
Heres the weekly split
What do you guys think? This would be a little much for me, but than again maybe I need to push myself a little more now.Serious Nutrition Solutions Representative

That is a ton of sets. I could never recover from that especially training to failure. Did the article explain why this routine would be superior to another routine in elevating GH?

that looks almost exactly like what i do. except i do more bench. usually all that plus decline bb bench and db flyes too. i usually also do 6 sets of everything. the triceps is the same except the only one i add to that is close grip bench.
i have never had a problem with overtraining, the only difference also is i try to work every muscle group twice in 10 days.

Doing squats every day would be the best way to raise GH.

They did also mention that squating was the number 1 exercise to raise GH output.
