Training for fat loss is often associated with high-intensity metabolic training. More specifically a lot of intensifiers such as drop-sets, super-sets, giant-sets, low-rest periods, higher repetitions and lighter weights. In other words, lactic acid training.
While metabolic training can be useful for fat loss, it is absolutely not necessary to train like this. The most important factor for losing fat is being in a caloric deficit, and some other things need to be in place as well.
However, there are certain great benefits to increase the speed of your fat loss with lactic acid training. And we are going to explore these benefits in this article. But it is important to remember that your training and nutrition need to be synchronized for this to work properly. Moreover, that your deficit is not too low, but where it should be.
What Is Lactic Acid?
Before we dive deeply into the benefits of lactic acid training, let us explore what actually happens in the body when we produce lactic acid. You might know it as “the burn” in your muscles. We will not go complete geek-mode, and only explain this in basic terms.
Lactate production happens when we are contracting our muscles, and they do not get enough oxygen for the mitochondria in their cells. Here it is important to understand that not all types of muscular contractions will produce lactate.
Thus, it is vital to…
