Elevated Liver Enzymes


My liver enzymes, SGOT and SGPT, have always been elevated to the max of normal or even slightly over that. Now they are running 2x max normal.

I've increased the volume of training I'm doing ala Christian Thibaudeau's HP Mass program. I "assume" that is the reason.

Do an of you guys, KSMan, Purechance, Hardasnails, etc., feel that enzyme elevation is due to the microtrauma of the eccentric portion of the rep? And if so, if I replaced a lot of standard volume with eccenttric-less volume that these elevated enzyme levels would come down?


Forgot to add that I am on a TR program.


Sore or bruised muscles can do that. More pain, higher markers.
