anything for lactic acid?

  1. anything for lactic acid?


    I've never had a good tolerance for lactic acid. Now I'm not in amazing shape, but I can run 1.5 miles in about 10 minutes, so it's not like i'm a fat **** who cant move.

    Even as I train the same and do the same runs my tolerance never gets any better and I almost always puke from it on my runs.


    Any ideas for me?


  2. Rugger,

    I am not sure I understand what your goal is.

    Is it to run 1.5 miles faster?

    If so we need a few details.

    How many miles do you run a week, how many days per week, at what pace etc.

    My goal is just not to get nauseas when I do HIIT or go on my runs. Generally I'll only run 1.5 miles once a week at about a 10 minute pace, but I also push myself in the gym to where I can still feel the acid making me queezy.

  4. Cytosport Cyto max, more popular in the cycling scene than BB.

    Cytomax is the world's most scientifically advanced complex carbohydrate, electrolyte performance energy drink. Ensures proper hydration, steady energy and reduced fatigue during exercise.

    Benefits of using Cytomax:

    * Beats The Burn: Cytomax's patented alpha L-Polylactate buffers lactic acid production in your muscles, reducing the "burn" during intense training and minimizing post-exercise muscle soreness.

    * Steady Energy: Complex carbs stabilize blood sugar during exercise - no sugar crash

    * Cell Protection: Antioxidants prevent exercise-induced free radical damage to muscle cells

    * Oxygen Delivery: Succinates enhance oxygen delivery by up to 11% during exercise, reducing perceived exertion and minimizing muscle damage

    * Cellular Balance: Electrolytes ensure cellular nutrient balance is restored quickly after exercise

    * Low Osmoality: Ensures fluid reaches your muscles quickly - as fast as water!

    * Natural Herbal "Lift": (in Tangy Orange, Go Grape and Peachy Keen flavors only) Reduces your perceived effort so you can push harder

  5. Whats your diet like pre-work out?

    What do you mean by this? Feel lactic acid? wha?

  7. He must be confusing stomach acid with lactic acid. lol

  8. I don't really understand his problem? How do you puke from sore muscles?

    It comes from an inability to disperse accumulated LA from working muscles- conditioning helps (you can teach your body how to do this), as well as certain supps. I have the same problem when we do really rough workouts- 300's at 75% and higher, intervals, and some of our circuits just about lay me out.

    The first day of fall conditioning this year we did 90s runs- basically, you are trying to run as far as possible in 90 seconds. It doesn't seem like much, but it fukcs you up pretty bad- you are trying to shoot for around the 600m mark. You see guys puking and just getting laid out on the track left and right after 5 sets- some guys get the LA burn so back that they lock up, and just sit there and cramp up and can't move- track can be brutal


    Phosphate will help as well, and creatine has some lactic acid buffering qualities as well- and Coug's suggestion of Beta-Al and Cit. Malate is golden- they help me a TON on longer sprints- simple and complex carbs pre-workout, along with RPM and Drive seem to help the most.

    Concur with the above recommendations: cit malate, Beta alanine, bcaas and some good quality carbs (even some fruit too like bananas) might help.

    Yes, we need details. What's your workout regimen?

  13. I'd personally go with the following, its what I do for swim practice:

    60 minutes before:
    Shake with a scoop or so of whey + BCAAs (either bulk BCAAs, xtend, or purple wraath)
    30 minutes before
    5g Citrulline malate
    2-3g beta alanine
    2g ALCAR

    After doing this for about a week and half you're really gonna notice how little lactic acid build up there is. When I do a set for swim practice, such as 10x100s, the last 100 feels just about as good as the first one.

  14. I run three miles a day four times a week and I am fine but when I do my military PT test and I run my two miles I always chuck or feel like I might. I always push myself more when I am timed. I am going to try some of these suggestions and see if they help me too.
