GROWTH HORMONE – Release of growth hormone increases when aerobic exercise increases.  This hormone increases the use of fat as fuel!  It stimulates protein synthesis, strength of bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.

ENDORPHINS – Blocks pain, decreases appetite, creates the “runners high” feeling and reduces tension and anxiety.  Who doesn’t need that?

TESTOSTERONE – Increases metabolism, decreases body fat and helps maintain muscle strength.

EPINEPHRINE – Increases the blood flow to the heart and helps breakdown stored carbs and fat to use as fuel.
