Growth Hormone is a 191 amino acid chain that has become extremely popular over the last couple of years amongst athletes and regular gym going people for many beneficial reasons that includes reducing body fat and increasing muscle size. Growth Hormone is also world wide being accepted as a anti ageing substance that reduces the symptoms of ageing. Fragment 176-191 is exactly what the name indicates. It is a fragment derived from the complete 191 amino acid chain that focuses on the fat burning properties of what the complete hormone offers. In other words its the fat burning function being extracted from the growth hormone molecule and emphasised.
Frag directly initiates lipolysis and inhibits lipogenesis. Lipolysis is the breakdown of lipids and involves hydrolysis of triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids. This might sound complicated but in essence it means that Frag 176-191 mobilises and break downs fat. Frag 176-191 will essentially reduce body fat the same way growth hormone does but it will focus predominantly on body fat reduction without all the other effects of growth hormone that athletes might not require. For argument sake a athlete might carry enough muscle and not want to gain more muscle but want to reduce the body fat percentage they carry.
Frag will not affect insulin sensitivity and therefore will not increase insulin resistance. IGF levels will also stay unaffected by Frag. The fact that Frag does not affect insulin sensitivity is very important for athletes who might already suffer from insulin resistance and who does not want to add to their impairment. Frag predominantly does two things. Firstly it increases the rate of lipolysis (fat break down) and inhibits (stops) lipogenesis (the transformation of sugars and carbs to fatty cells). SIde effects of Frag is so far undocumented and unreported, therefore we assume there are none.
To cycle and administer Frag is a bit tricky but if you read carefully below and follow the guidelines you will have great results.
The first rule of Frag is to keep blood sugar levels low on administration. The same way you do not want to eat close to taking growth hormone because the insulin is a antagonist that destroys the growth that rule applies to Frag as well. The second rule that helps with increasing fat loss is to do physical activity directly after taking your Frag injection. Once the Frag mobilised the fatty acids into the bloodstream and you do physical exercises without eating any carbohydrates and there are no glucose in the blood stream (your bodies first choice for energy is glucose) you will force your body to use the fatty acids in the blood stream as energy. So you burn the fatty acids off as energy once its mobilised by having a workout before it gets a chance to be redeposited back into the fatty cells from where it was mobilised. So timing your peptide with your food intake is very important.
There are no specific guidelines as to how long you can take Frag for. The best results documented and reported was always when Frag was administered two to three times a day when blood sugar levels are low and a physical exercise session can be added within 20 to 30 minutes after the injection. The reason for this is once the fatty acids has been mobilised into the bloodstream you want to utilise it as energy. To manage your food intake is not difficult but very few people train two and three times a day to optimise the effects of Frag. Most people manage to do physical exercise two to three times a day with two to three injections of Frag per day for a week or two just to get the body fat down drastically and then they go back to training once a day with one injection of Frag a day. If however you can maintain the intensity of two to three workouts a day on a low carbohydrate diet and two to three injections of Frag a day your body fat reduction will be phenomenal but this would take huge effort to maintain. Usually after a week or two athletes return to their normal routines once they brought the body fat down and reached their targets.
7 to 14 day cycle should look like this Mix your 5000mcg with 1ml of bacteriostatic water (make sure its not normal water)
First Injection – Take 350mcg (7 marks on the insulin syringe) with breakfast. Breakfast should not include any carbs. Within 20 to 30 min after administring your Frag you must have a workout. In the morning we would recommend a cardiovascular workout of 20 to 30 minutes. If you are able to train on a empty stomach (intermitted fasting diet) you can include a injection of yohimbine hydrochloride to add extra fat burning and energy for the workout. if training on a empty stomach breaks down too much muscle size you can add a pure whey protein drink with no carbs and combine essential amino acids with extra Leucine.
Second Injection– Take 350mcg (7 marks on the insulin syringe) about 20 to 30 minutes before your weight training session late afternoon or early evening. Again this injection must become active in the bloodstream when insulin levels are at its lowest. In other words at least two hours before the Frag injection you must not consume any carbohydrates. You can eat pure protein in the form of fish, chicken or lean beef fillet that keeps blood glucose levels low. After the workout the athlete can consume as much carbohydrates as he needs to replenish energy levels and glycogen in the muscles.
Third Injection– Take 300mcg (6 marks on the insulin syringe). The last injection can be taken just before bedtime and again at least two to three hours after dinner when blood glucose levels and insulin levels are at its lowest. Directly after the injection you could again include a short 20 to 30 minute cardio session to get optimum results.
This fat burning cycle and regime is not optimal for muscle building seeing that your carbohydrate intake is very low. This extreme method is used when you have enough muscle size and want to concentrate more on fat burning. When fat burning becomes a priority over building muscle. In other words you would do this as a temporary measure pre contest and then return to a normal weight training and muscle building regime afterwards.
Although this method is not optimal for all athletes you can choose to find middle ground by only taking your Frag twice a day with two workouts and no carbs close to the workout or even once a day in the morning with your cardiovascular workout and carry on with your normal routine for the rest of the day if you still want to increase muscle size. Its important for athletes to play around with the options available to optimise their needs between fat burning and muscle building and find a balance that suits you as individual best. Its important to remember the fundamental guidelines of blood sugar levels and physical exercise and then work around that to balance muscle gains and fat burning.
