You've Got 3 Weeks to Lose Weight - The Best Rapid Weight Loss Product

Many weight loss products promise good results, but have you actually looked at what they are going to do in order to give you those results? Some of them merely cause you to lose water weight. You will weigh less, but you will just be dehydrated and the amount of adipose tissue (or body fat) on your body will be exactly the same.

Using these methods is no way to get in shape. You need a product that will actually help you in a scientific, fundamental way and something that will use advances in nutrition to alter both your diet and your body. - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/rapid-weight-loss-supplements-how-to

HGH Reduces Body Fat - Benefits of HGH

Upon turning 40, some people experience what is commonly called “middle-age spread.” Regardless of diet or exercise, it becomes harder and harder to keep the stomach area from storing up fatty deposits. What’s worse is that studies have found that collecting fat around one’s mid-section can result in more serious health issues such as heart disease or diabetes. Human growth hormone pills can counter this risk to one’s health. HGH supplements stave off the accumulation of fat around the stomach and vital organs, thus helping to avoid a potential heart attack or a worse health condition down the road.

How do Natural Growth Hormone Supplements Work?

There are many different types of natural growth hormone supplements on the market and it's hard to know not only if they will work, but also how they work. Maybe by understanding how these natural supplements stimulate growth you can determine whether or not they are a scam, or if they indeed will work and work for you.

What do we mean by "growth hormone stimulation"?
Growth Hormone is not necessarily "growing taller", although that's definitely a possibility; but rather when we say growth, we mean muscle and bone growth and density. Other benefits that we won't get into include the known benefits of HGH such as:

 - Anti-aging
 - Better sleep
 - Increased memory
 - Muscle growth
 - Weight Loss - Increased Sexual Performance
 - And about 25 other more other health benefits...

Exercise Videos and Tips for Arthritis & Aging

Exercise Videos and Tips for Arthritis & Aging

Whether you're trying to control pain or weight, need to lower your blood pressure or just want to feel better, exercise is known to provide these and numerous other health benefits. If you have arthritis or other aches and pains associated with aging, exercise can be instrumental in decreasing joint paint, reducing joint stiffness, improving flexibility, increasing mobility and enhancing overall wellness.

When you have arthritis or other aches and pains that tend to happen as you age, the thought of exercising can be very intimidating. However, the rewards and benefits by doing certain exercises can pay off with huge benefits to your body and quality of life. To give you the encouragement you may need, we have gathered together some great exercise videos and tips to get you started. We've also created a Pinterest board with plenty more tips for exercising as you age or if you have arthritis.

Exercises for People with Hip and Knee Arthritis

A professional physical therapist gives us some non-weight-bearing exercises that can be beneficial for someone who has arthritis in the hip or knee areas. The first exercise is a straight-leg raise, which uses the quadricep muscles and hip flexors. Increasing the intensity is as easy as adding an ankle weight to this exercise. The second exercise we learn about is a bridge, where the gluteus maximus is lifted and works the quadriceps and hamstrings, as well as hip and back extensors. The last exercise demonstrated is a side leg raise, which strengthens the hip abductor. These three exercises target the hip and knee areas, while focusing on strengthening the muscles around the joint, reducing the shock absorption and taking stress off of the joints. Check out this Exercise for Arthritis & Aging: Hip & Knee Arthritis Exercises video for the full presentation of each exercise.

Top 10 Exercises for Osteoarthritis of the Knee&lt

Have osteoarthritis of the knee? The team at the Good Exercise Guide, a group of medical professionals who focus on providing treatment and advice for individuals who need exercise as part of their recovery, created this video. It contains 10 of the best exercises to help individuals with osteoarthritis of the knee. There isn’t any audio, but the visual really says it all as the demonstrator does each exercise. You can follow along in real time for each of these exercises:

  • Long Sitting Calf Stretch
  • Towel Assisted Knee Mobility
  • Short-Arc Quadriceps Exercise
  • Bridging Exercise: Stage 1
  • Prone Knee Bends
  • Sitting Hamstring Stretch
  • Medial Quadriceps Mini Lunge
  • Best Inner-Range Quads Exercise
  • Safe Squats
  • 1Double Heel Raise

Tips for Protecting Your Joints

As you do everyday things like bending or picking up a box, you want to ensure that you are protecting your joints, especially when you have arthritis. This video shows how you can avoid lingering pain by protecting your joints during upper and lower body exercises when you have arthritis. The professional physical therapist and his client demonstrate positioning your body properly, along with the body mechanics of joints, muscles and ligaments to squat or bend to pick up something off of the floor.

L-Ornithine Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient L-Ornithine, or (S)-2,5-Diaminopentanoic Acid

Ornithine – also known as L-ornithine, (S)-2,5-diaminopentanoic acid or (S)-alpha,delta-diaminovaleric acid – is a crystalline amino acid. Different sources refer to it as a nonessential or conditionally essential amino acid, which means that it is normally produced by the body in sufficient amounts; however, dietary supplementation may be beneficial in times of illness, injury or stress. L-ornithine is found in some food sources as well as in health and bodybuilding supplements such as HGH 30,000 Nanograms pills and HGF MAX.

Functions of L-Ornithine

Together with arginine and citrulline, ornithine is one of three amino acids that play a key role in the urea cycle. The conversion of arginine into ornithine and ornithine into citrulline increases urea production while lowering ammonia concentrations in the blood. Citrulline subsequently binds with aspartate to form arginosuccinate, which breaks down into free arginine and fumarate; through this process, ornithine is metabolized back into arginine by the liver. Because L-ornithine helps accelerate the excretion of ammonia, it is believed to promote proper liver function, prevent fatigue and enhance performance during prolonged exercise. Evidence also suggests that L-ornithine may stimulate human growth hormone (HGH) production, thereby serving as a natural HGH releaser.

Sources of L-Ornithine

The human body manufactures ornithine from the amino acid arginine as part of the urea cycle. Dietary sources of L-ornithine include protein-rich foods such as beef, chicken, pork, fish, eggs, dairy products, peanuts and soybeans. L-ornithine may also be consumed in natural dietary supplements.

L-Ornithine Benefits and Uses

Among the benefits of ornithine is its ability to detoxify ammonia levels in the bloodstream; because of this function, it can be used to treat hepatic encephalopathy (a brain complication caused by liver disease). It also appears to help reduce fatigue and mitigate the effects of alcohol consumption, improving sleep quality and decreasing negative feelings the next morning. In addition, L-ornithine may promote wound healing, contribute to immune system function, support weight management, reduce stress and improve overall mood. Some evidence suggests L-ornithine acts as a natural HGH releaser, or HGH secretagogue. Because of its ability to boost HGH production and reduce fatigue, L-ornithine supplements are often taken to improve athletic performance, enhance muscle growth and increase endurance.

Side Effects of L-Ornithine and Potential Interactions

L-ornithine supplements are generally considered safe for adults; no serious side effects or drug interactions have been reported at doses of 2 to 6 grams per day. However, excessive doses (more than 10 grams per day) may potentially cause intestinal distress or diarrhea in some users.

More detailed safety information on L-ornithine dosing, side effects and interactions can be found on Examine.com. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing L-ornithine.

L-Ornithine Research and Studies

Various research studies have shown that L-ornithine can be used therapeutically for certain medical conditions as well as to enhance overall health, well being and athletic performance. For example, a group of Polish researchers reported that L-ornithine-L-aspartate (LOLA) supplementation has the ability to lower blood ammonia concentration, eliminate symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy associated with liver cirrhosis and stimulate tissue regeneration, while a Japanese study determined that healthy office workers who consumed a combination of caffeine and ornithine had higher mood ratings, less fatigue and better concentration than those who consumed caffeine alone. Japanese researchers also tested the effects of L-ornithine on salivary cortisol, mood and feelings of fatigue the morning after alcohol consumption, and found that L-ornithine supplements lowered cortisol levels, increased sleep length and significantly decreased feelings of fatigue, anger/hostility and confusion.

Study findings published in the Nutrition Journal and Nutrition Research revealed that L-ornithine not only has the potential to relieve stress and improve sleep quality in fatigued office workers, but also to reduce physical fatigue during exercise. Researchers stated that the decrease in physical fatigue is due to L-ornithine’s ability to modulate lipid and amino acid metabolism, thereby increasing the efficiency of energy consumption. Furthermore, a recent animal study published in the Brain Research Bulletin found that L-ornithine reduced body weight, abdominal fat and food intake in rats.

Beyond the research indicating L-ornithine’s potential to reduce fatigue and overall body weight, several studies suggest that it can improve strength and HGH levels. A study published in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness revealed that arginine and ornithine supplementation paired with a high-intensity strength-training program increased total strength and lean body mass in a relatively short period of time. The article also reported that the arginine and ornithine supplements aided in recovery from chronic stress by quelling tissue breakdown, as evidenced by lower urinary hydroxyproline levels. Furthermore, a double-blind study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that ornithine and arginine supplementation increased human growth hormone (HGH) and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) serum levels after heavy-resistance exercise in strength-trained athletes. While further research is needed, the preliminary findings on L-ornithine supplements show significant promise for improving athletic performance, building muscle and elevating HGH levels.

For additional L-ornithine research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

HGH.com Supplements With L-Ornithine

Pull-Ups Exercise Videos and Tips

Awesome Pull-Ups Exercise Videos and Tips

When it comes to upper body development, pull-ups can be very effective. However, pull-ups are oftentimes an overlooked exercise. As we mentioned in the Bodyweight Training Videos and Tips blog post, pull-ups are one of the three fundamental bodyweight training exercises that build muscle and strength. They are known to develop upper body muscles, including biceps, triceps, lats, traps and abs.

Whether you're a bodybuilder, fitness trainer or just want a great workout, pull-ups should be an integral part of your strength training regimen. They're ideal to warm up and cool down for upper-body sessions, and are a great way to add variety to your workout routine. In addition, you can easily increase the difficulty by performing weighted pull-ups by adding a weight belt around your waist, wearing a weight vest, or holding a dumbbell between your ankles or knees.

We've gathered a few videos about pull-ups for you, including one that shows the difference between chin-ups and pull-ups and another that shows common mistakes. Plus, we found a video that talks about the recent Guinness World Record holder for pull-ups. We've also created a dedicated Pinterest board with Pull-Ups Tips and Videos.

What’s the Difference Between Pull-Ups and Chin-Ups?

Get the lowdown on the major distinctions between a pull-up, chin-up and neutral-grip pull-up. They all concentrate on the biceps, lats, traps, brachialis and posterior delts. You’ll find that the pecs and traps are activated first, followed by the biceps and lats. However, it’s all in where the emphasis is. For example, when we look at the overhand pull-up, we notice that it is easier on the wrists and elbows, while focusing on the forearm flexors, brachialis, brachioradialis and lower traps. Now, when it comes to the neutral chin-up or neutral pull-up, the palms are facing each other, and there is more emphasis on the rhomboid and lats. Whereas the underhand grip chin-up focuses on the biceps and lats more than a neutral pull-up, while also targeting the teres major, posterior delt, rhomboids and lower traps. For more information, check out this video:

How to Avoid Common Mistakes When Doing Pull-ups

While pull-ups are an excellent indication of overall strength and a great exercise to build back muscles, there are five common mistakes people make when doing them. One of the Buff Dudes take us through the most frequent faux pas to help you avoid making them when performing this exercise. In the video, they discuss these five common pull-ups exercise mistakes:

1. Using Your Momentum
2. Elbows in Wrong Position
3. Not Pulling Your Shoulders Down and Back
4. Not Performing Full Range of Motion
5. Not Being Able to Complete a Pull-Up

Breaking the Guinness World Record for Pull-Ups

How many pull-ups can you do in a 24-hour period? When 54-year-old Mark Jordan from Corpus Christi, Texas answers this question, he breaks records. He spent a year preparing for this moment. Not only did he work out and practice, but he also focused on a solid strategy. In November of 2014, Mark was put to the test for a chance to break the Guinness World Record and succeeded by accomplishing a total of 4,321 pull-ups in 24 hours. In March of 2015, Guinness World Records confirmed that Mark Jordan holds the record for Most Pull-ups in 24 hours. Check out his achievement with this video report from USA Today.
