    lactic acid training for fat loss


    hello everyone i read an article a while back about lactic acid training and dramatic fat loss.
    the idea behind it is that lactic acid is suppose to increase gh. just wondering if anyone has tried it and had success with it as i like a new challenge and would want to try it.

    I thought elevated lactic acids levels hindered fatty acid utilization.

    I am imagining that the desired effect is something that happens after the workout.

    I personally do not think much, if any, LBM can be added as a direct result of a change in cardio. That being said, the nutrient repartitioning and EPOC levels from HIIT cardio are fantastic for body composition. One thing to remember, though, is that HIIT can be very taxing on the CNS, so I would not restrict kcals too much.

    I did a little lactic acid training for about a month towards the end of last year, I noticed a loss of fat and a major increase in endurance. However, I also noticed the all my maxes were down, so I would have to say I lost a little strength.

    I think the best way to do it would be like Christian Thibaudeau's "Destroying Fat" where heavy lifting days and lactic inducing workouts are both included.

    I read a lot of CP's work, and I have done GBC aka Lactic Acid for fat loss, and yes it does work, and it is different than HIIT.

    And this year's cut, I will be using the outlines in CT's "Destroying Fat" article...

    try and do as much supersetting as you can, with minimal rest. also do a leg exercise, then an upper body one, then a leg, then upper body. alternating like that will maximize results

    Actually, I would do it with arms, or drop arms completely. A waste of time during a cut.

    well, the only problem I see with doing it friday in place of arms is that depending on how heavy thursday is, might still be pretty sore in the legs. actually tho, I could see dropping arms, and moving legs to friday and doing it then. Cause with hitting legs tuesday, i'm not sure how heavy you could hit them again thursday anyhow

    I've been to this seminar and Poliquin says largest muscle to smallest muscle, supersetting lower and upper body. If you don't want to throw up, it was too easy or you do pick the right intensity/weight.

    Outlined in CT's article

    CIRCUIT A (12-15 reps per set)

    A1. Horizontal pushing exercise
    A2. Quads-dominant exercise
    A3. Horizontal pulling exercise
    A4. Hamstrings-dominant exercise
    A5. Abdominal exercise

    No rest between exercises within the circuit (or as little as possible). Perform the circuit three times.

    CIRCUIT B (15-20 reps per set)

    B1. Vertical pushing exercise
    B2. Quads-dominant exercise
    B3. Vertical pulling exercise
    B4. Hamstrings-dominant exercise
    B5. Abdominal exercise

    No rest between exercises within the circuit (or as little as possible). Perform the circuit three times.

    CIRCUIT C OPTIONAL (15-20 reps per set)

    C1. Biceps exercise
    C2. Calves exercise
    C3. Triceps exercise
    C4. Abdominal exercise
    C5. Shoulder isolation exercise

    No rest between exercises within the circuit (or as little as possible). Perform the circuit three times.

    What CT outlined:

    Day 1: Heavy lifting chest/back

    Day 2: Lactate-inducing workout 1

    Day 3: OFF

    Day 4: Heavy lifting quads/hams

    Day 5: OFF

    Day 6: Lactate-inducing workout 2

    Day 7: OFF
