LTC Ed's Journal | May 2015

by Major Edward Arntson - US Army Ranger


Good afternoon from Texas.

As I have transitioned into a new job as the Brigade Operations Officer for 1st Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division - my time and my recovery from training are both becoming more and more important.

My time for training is absolutely critical because I must be judicious and efficient with my time in my new job. It isn’t uncommon to work late into the evening hours and report back for work early the next morning before the sun has risen. This makes my time to train - usually 60-70 minutes each morning - precious. I have to maximize every minute of this time to keep my fitness at a high level.

I also must continue to recover quickly from training - which is where PerfectAmino comes in. Following each training session, I take 5-10 PerfectAminos to aid in recovery. As I am generally off and running by 0930, I can’t be sluggish or tired from training that morning. Perfect Amino helps me bounce back and start the day right.

I have been working on my endurance during this current cycle - efforting runs of 5-6 miles (that’s not very long to some folks) several days per week and working on developing my muscular endurance 2-3 days per week. My current work foot print does not contain a gym so it’s been fun to re-attack bodyweight exercises (with some DB and KB exercises) as the primary method of upper/lower body strength training.

Also - I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention BodyHealth Complete + Detox Multi-vit. I take 2-4 daily and they help keep my system regulated…if I go to the field or miss taking them for several days in a row due to work, I definitely feel the effect.

Take care and thanks for what you guys do. On this Memorial Day I am thankful to have the ability to train hard, to sweat, and to experience the joy of pushing through difficult training. It is an ability afforded to me and other Americans due to the sacrifice of many men on battlefields across the world - over several generations. Training, working out - whatever you want to call it - is a key part of living life to its fullest for me….and it was bought at a price.

Keep training. Keep working hard…each session was bought and paid for by men and women of the Armed Forces of past and current generations.

-Ed

When it comes to cholesterol, virtually everyone is aware that too much LDL cholesterol is an indicator of heart disease and that optimizing LDL/HDL levels is critical for heart health.

People avoid foods that are high in cholesterol, exercise, lose weight, and try countless other methods to lower their LDL – which are all met with varying levels of success. But, despite all this, heart disease is still the leading cause of death in the USA.

Today we’re going to discuss a simple, science-backed alternative solution to lowering LDL levels – and it’s all about protein.

What Raises and Lowers Growth Hormone Levels Naturally?
What Raises and Lowers Growth Hormone Levels Naturally?

by Dr. David Minkoff April 08, 2021 6 min read 0 Comments

Growth Hormone (GH or HGH) is one of the most important hormones in regard to muscle gain and fat loss for men and women:

 It increases muscle mass, increases protein synthesis, strengthens bone, internally makes your metabolism “younger,” and is, to a large degree, “anti-aging” in its effects. And it does this in large part by stimulating the uptake of amino acids in the cells. 

In fact, GH is so closely tied to amino acids, that not only does GH stimulate the uptake of aminos, but taking aminos stimulates the release of GH to get the cells to take in the aminos.
