Burn fat with Lactic Acid Training

In order to burn maximum fat you have to tailor the training that you're doing to match the hormonal state that your eating puts you in. If you don't do this, you're missing out on some serious results.

Fortunately, this is a fairly simple thing to do. You just have to know what the hormonal effects of the nutrients you're eating are, how specific training techniques will affect and enhance the hormonal effects of those nutrients.

Let's say you're eating a low-carb diet (under 30 grams of carbs a day). The insulin levels in your body are fairly low and very stable. Insulin is the main storage hormone in your body and when insulin is up, fat loss grinds to a halt. So ideally, when you want to lose fat, you want to keep your insulin under control and that means managing your carbohydrate intake.

Now here's the other part...when insulin levels are stable and lower, this sets the stage for growth hormone...one of your body's most powerful fat-burning and muscle-building hormones. Bottom line, GH and insulin don't get along...this hormone is not secreted in great quantity when insulin is present in the bloodstream. It's your body's way of balancing things.

So first, we use low-carb eating to set the nutritional stage for fat-burning. Now we need to use a training technique that maximizes growth hormone secretion in the body.

And that technique is Lactic Acid Training.

When you train to maximize Lactic Acid (and yes, that means going for the burn, some cry), the pH (i.e. the acidity level) in your bloodstream drops. That pH drop is a signal for your body to start kicking out GH, which in turn, increases fat-burning and not only spares muscle tissue but actually has the potential to build it, even under low-calorie conditions.

Once you make the metabolic U-turn (i.e. you are no longer running on sugar) you will be hacking off the fat faster than a sushi chef. When your body adapts and you have a new 'set point' start re-introducing some of the carbs back into your diet, mainly non-starchy ones such as some fruits and low toxic vegs. The more you exercise the more carbs you can get away with.

Bottom line is, most likely you are not sticking to your diet and secondly you are not exercising enough (5xpw is recommended). You may have the best diet under the sun but if you are in a caloric surplus, nada will happen. The likely result will be muscle loss and before you know it you are back to square one. Lactic acid training alone will do diddly squat if you do it once in a while and eat a high carb diet. Ideally, you practice intermittent fasting because growth hormone levels go even higher when training in a fasted state (note, this is not for everyone. If you have a medical condition such as low blood pressure you do need to eat something prior to exercise).
