I’m doing Thibaudeau’a ‘destroying fat’ program, and so far it’s going great.
One thing that does have me confused at the moment is the Lactate sessions. The recommendation was to do 3seconds on the eccentric and 1 on the concentric, but I don’t really enjoy that.
On friday I put all my reps up to 20 and just did it all as fast as I could, providing I was resisting the weight on the way down.
It was probably the toughest workout I’ve ever done. I could hardly lift my arms afterwards and when I went to do the 20-30min cardio afterwards I just sat on the bike and zombied out for 15minutes, pedaling pathetically slowly.
So my question is, am I still getting a lactate session or am I just doing cardio with weights? Am I screwing up or is it okay to do it like that? Hard as it was, I enjoy the faster workout more.
