Somatopause

by Phil Campbell - Ready, Set, Go! Synergy Fitness for Time Crunched Adults

The SOMATOPAUSE (sa-mot-a-pause) is the name medical researchers give to the metabolism slowdown that typically begins in the mid-30s. This condition has been called the middle-age spread, and the middle-age bulge. Whatever it's called, the middle-age somatopause impacts 80 million baby-boomers in the U.S. and millions more world wide.

Clinical Signs of the Somatopause

·        Weight gain

·        Energy Loss

·        Skin wrinkling

·        Decreasing muscle

·        Loss of bone density

·        Increasing body fat
    (especially around the waist)

What causes the Somatopause?

The somatopause is directly related to the decline of growth hormone produced by the body during aging. However, a specific form of exercise has been shown by researchers to increase growth hormone by 530%! The following chart illustrates the problem.

Growth Hormone Declines with Age

Cures for the Somatopause

There are two main cures for the middle-age somatopause; growth hormone injections (not recommended), or the natural method, anaerobic exercise.

Celebrity Appearance Improving Drug of Choice

It's widely reported that several well-known actors take growth hormone injections for its anti-aging, youth rejuvenating properties. And GH has been banned for athletes because of its ability to improve performance.

While research shows serious side-effects are possible with this therapy, everyone knows instinctively -- when you inject something into your bloodstream that costs $1,500 a month (that can put on muscle like steroids, and pull 28 pounds of bodyfat off a 200 pound person), it doesn't take rocket science to figure there's a price to pay in the long run.

Hold on! There's a better way to get the benefits of increasing growth hormone! And it's 100% natural and it doesn't cost a dime - just a little of your time.

The Natural Cure for the Somatopause

Growth hormone can be increased 530% with anaerobic exercise - the short-burst, get-you-out-of-breath quickly, sprinting types of exercise. You don't have to spend all day in the gym, jog for hours, or starve yourself. But it does require high-intensity exercise for short periods.

Researchers report;

"Aging is often associated with a progressive decrease in the volume and, especially, the intensity of exercise. A growing body of evidence suggests that higher intensity exercise is effective in eliciting beneficial health, well-being and training outcomes. In a great many cases, the impact of some of the deleterious effects of aging could be reduced if exercise focused on promoting exercise produced growth hormone."
("The exercise-induced growth hormone response in athletes," Godfrey, Sports Med. 2003;33(8):599-613.2003)

Now, before you go out and run, cycle, or swim a few 100 meter sprints or power-walk some steep hills, it's important to note that anaerobic exercise is the most productive form of exercise (from the GH anti-aging standpoint), but it's also the most dangerous. Even young athletes need to warm-up, and progressively build intensity levels or risk pulling hamstrings, calf muscles, and Achilles tendons.

Middle-age adults need to slowly ease into high-intensity anaerobic exercise. And for some reason, many of my X-jock friends believe that this warning does not apply to them. Even well-conditioned athletes, who can jog for miles, need a progressive, six to eight week buildup period.

Adults can successfully add anaerobic fitness training to their fitness program, but there needs to be a slow, progressive buildup period. And physician clearance should be obtained before beginning any type of high-intensity training.

Have a great day!

Personal Endorsement

Phil Campbell contacted me personally and asked if I would be interested in following his training plan. After being a competitive runner for over 36 years, I thought that there was little more that I could learn. I was totally wrong! Ready, Set, Go! Synergy Fitness for Time Crunched Adults has revolutionized my training and I can't thank Phil enough. I have lost body fat, gained energy and strength and I am running better than I have in years. Phil's book shows you how to incorporate his training methods into your bicycling, swimming, running or other cardiovascular workout as well as maximize the benefit that you get from your strength workout. You owe it to yourself to order this book and start achieving all of the goals that you have always wanted to, but never been able to.
