HGH is a fairly new drug in bodybuilding, with it only coming on the scene in the last 30 years. Advocates of HGH say it’s taken bodybuilding to a whole new level…enabling the pros to get HUGER than ever before.
Some critics claim HGH has actually sabotaged bodybuilding, with IFBB pros being too monstrous-looking; and lacking the classic look of the 70’s. Such a look consisted of huge muscles with a tiny waist – with Arnold and Franco perfectly demonstrating this before Growth Hormone came onto the scene).
As many HGH reviews online contradict each other; this one will help you understand the common effects of taking human growth hormone. Aka for the normal/non-sensitive user.
- Huge muscle gains (with insulin)
- Great for skin
- Burns fat
- Increases penis size (srs)
Big Muscle Gains
HGH can take your muscle gains to a whole new level, if you combine it with insulin. Taking HGH by itself will only result in mild gains in size.
For BIG hypertrophy gains, 4 IU’s of HGH daily is a good dose. You can go up to 6 IUs to enhance your gains further, however you’re more at risk of developing side effects on a higher dose. Anything over 6 IUs is considered an excessive dose and is not recommended.
The reason why so many bodybuilders combine insulin with HGH is because HGH causes insulin resistance. This basically means that when you drink your protein shake with dextrose, your body won’t react in a normal way and maximize this ‘anabolic window’. Thus protein synthesis is negatively impacted.
However, taking insulin with HGH can bring rectify this situation and cause serious increases in mass.
Great for Skin
HGH reverses the ageing process.
Your overall skin quality will improve significantly due to an increase in collagen production. This results in a user looking younger and having an attractive youthful glow.
Also several people report their sex life improving whilst cycling HGH, thanks to it enhancing a man’s libido – giving the man more frequent and random erections throughout the day. This is a similar effect to higher testosterone levels.
Don’t expect to get shredded overnight on HGH. It’s not quite as powerful as clenbuterol or anavar for losing weight; but your body fat % will decrease after several weeks of administration.
…Unless your diet resembles the Rock on an epic cheat day.
HGH burns fat through lipolysis. This is the process where your body begins to burn fat stores for energy.
Increases Penis Size
…This isn’t a joke!
But before you get too excited, you’re not going to turn into Ron Jeremy overnight. The science behind your penis growing from HGH is because the compound stimulates new tissue growth – including penile tissue.
…And the good news is, there’s quite a bit of soft tissue in your penis!
HGH will also greatly improve blood flow. And the more blood that can enter your penis, the bigger your erection will be. You might gain quarter/half an inch on your penis, which is noticeable (but nothing huge).
Your nose will also get bigger, as well as your fingers and skull.
- Enlarges organs
- Acheing joints
- Water retention
Like steroids, HGH can increase the size of your internal organs. However the main organ people talk about in regards to growth hormone is your intestine. The reason why the intestine can become bigger on HGH is because it has a high number of IGF-1 receptors. Thus taking HGH and insulin together can promote the growth of these cells.
However, if you just take HGH in moderate/low doses you’re not going to notice much growth in the gut region.
But if you decide to take mega high doses and super-long cycles of HGH for several years; you’re almost certainly going to develop a typical ‘steroid gut’.
A good example of someone thought to be taking HGH, yet maintains a super-aesthetic physique is – Chul Soon.
So it can be done.
HGH has a habit of causing acheing/painful joints, which some people believe is due to fluid retention. To help eliminate this side effect you could run deca alongside HGH.
Deca is meant to be very healthy for the joints, with doctors prescribing the bulking steroid to everyday people suffering from joint problems.
As with most anabolic steroids, HGH also causes water retention. So if your goal is to look as ripped and dry as possible – HGH might not be the best steroid to take. However, you won’t retain as much fluid compared to steroids like anadrol.
If you’re anxious about retaining excessive fluid, you can combine HGH with steroids that have diuretic properties (meaning they’re effective at flushing out water):
HGH Review Summary
If you want to remain looking aesthetic, HGH is probably one of the worst steroids you can choose to abuse…because you’ll end up looking pregnant.
However, if a person uses it in moderation and combines it with insulin; they’re going to make some impressive muscle gains…without developing a huge belly!
Overall, when HGH is used right, it can impact your body composition dramatically.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my HGH review (and haven’t yawned yourself to sleep)…now you’ll have more knowledge about what can happen to your body when a bodybuilder takes this compound.
