As a beginner, weight training always comes first in one's mind. You hit the gym and train like a freak, loving every minute of it. Be it that you are looking to lose weight or gain muscle the gym is the first place you focus on. Some of you will clean up your diet, but more often than not when I hear the statement: "I am eating better." This means to me, you are just eating a little better than normal.

Everyone knows testosterone and growth hormone play significant roles in building muscle and strength. Perhaps those who know this best are athletes, especially bodybuilders. In men, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues, such as the testis and prostate, as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics like increased muscle, bone mass, and the growth of body hair. Growth hormone (GH) is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in humans and other animals. Human growth hormone is primarily used by people for its anabolic, or muscle-building, properties.
THE GYM WAS MY SALVATION
