Last post, I wrote about the virtues of a form of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), commonly referred to as MGF, short for MechanoGrowth Factor. MGF, could very well also be coined EGF, for Exercise Growth Factor, as the mechanical stimulus that activates its expression and is inherent in [...]

Last post, I explained how certain studies have suggested that creatine supplementation stimulates muscle cells to express the Insulin-like Growth Factors Type 1, IGF-1s. This is potentially a very important effect, clinically as well as athletically, as these essential anabolic factors are responsible for the development of muscle, bones, heart, and blood vessels. [...]

Exercise stimulates muscle development and enhances athletic performance; hardly anyone would argue with this assertion. In essence, muscle tries to adapt to the extra load you are placing on it by training by increasing its capacity to perform at that new level. A type of memory, if you will. Based on recent history, muscle [...]

In previous posts I have stressed the importance of the IGF-1s (Insulin-like growth factors, type 1) in promoting body growth. To reiterate the main message of my last (post): the IGF-1s are likely to be our most important growth promoters, particularly with reference to all types of muscle, bone and connective tissues. Importantly, [...]

Depending on the intensity of the exercise and physical condition of the athlete anywhere between three and seven days are required for muscles to fully recover. This isn’t to say, however, that one should work out only once per week – this would be nearly as ineffective as overtraining.
