You can speed up rotator cuff surgery recovery using amino acids to naturally release growth hormone. Growth hormone speeds healing of injuries and surgery recovery.
So how can growth hormone help you recover faster from a torn rotator cuff?
Here’s how … Growth hormone (HGH) and insulin-like growth factor have effects that go beyond athletic performance and anti-aging.
Increase HGH naturally and you help build up connective tissue after injury or surgery.
Faster Rotator Cuff Surgery Recovery
Amino Acids & Growth Hormone: A number of amino acids have been shown to induce HGH release.
Actually, the standard test to provoke the pituitary to release growth hormone is an intravenous injection of 15 grams to 30 grams of arginine.
Sandy Shaw outlined a self experiment to speed healing of her broken foot in the book, Life Extension: A Practical Scientific Approach.
Shaw naturally stimulated the release of HGH by taking 10 grams of arginine each day on an empty stomach. About 45 minutes to an hour after taking the arginine, she performed 3 minutes of bench presses.
In 6 weeks she reportedly lost 25 lbs. of fat and gained 5 lbs. of muscle. even better, she also felt she had a quicker recovery. This protocol may also work to speed healing for faster rotator cuff surgery recovery.
Rotator Cuff Surgery Recovery With Growth Hormone
After rotator cuff repair you could consume this same level of arginine (10 grams) and perform a different set of exercises to induce the growth hormone release and quicker surgery recovery. Perform leg exercises such as leg presses or even deep knee bends.
In other words, about 1 hour after taking 10 grams of arginine, perform 3 to 5 minutes of leg exercise. If you did keep knee bends, try holding onto something for balance then lower yourself for a count of 5 and then raising back up for a count of 5. Do 10 of these as a set. That set will take about 1 minute 45 seconds. Next, rest 2 minutes and repeat. See more recommended workout routines.
Repeat this exercise or a different leg exercise in 2 to 3 days. This is actually a version of exercising that bodybuilders use to gain muscle mass – See The New High Intensity Workout for in depth exercise review.
