Lactic Acid Training/EDT

After the V-diet, I’ll continue cutting on a 400 calories reduced diet.

I’m planning to try a Lactic acid/EDT training. I’ll use light weights and aim for 100 reps in 15 min. At 120 reps, I’ll up the weight. I’ll use compound movements for 3 exercises on 4.

Do you think it will be a solid fat burning workout? I’m pretty sure I’ll ‘‘feel the burn’’ and it will keep my heartrate high.

I just finished CT’s hypermetabolism, and boyyyyy does lactic acid SUCK when you’re restricting calories. My advice would be to not lift early in the morning, but some time in the late afternoon when you’ve had a few meals so you have plenty of energy.

But yeah I think your program looks good.

What are your stats?

I’m 6’2’’, 222 pounds and I don’t know my fat%. My top and middle abs show a bit.

I was also thinking doing HIIT on off days, 2 days a week. Hill sprints and/or skipping rope.

I think its great and youll lose FAT but also think the loads are low to really hold onto LBM EDT the original way if done full body compounds will RIP the fat off you.

That or Id suggest having at least ONE day of Lower volume Big compounds where you work in the 5 rep or under zone trying to keep as much strenght as possible

Even if I use BCAA’s? I was thinking before, in the middle of my workout and after, to maximise muscle retention…

Or maybe, let’s say I’ll be working chest and back. I may start with 3 or 4 sets of 4-5 reps with, say, Bench press and weighted chin-ups. Then after, I do two 15 min. PR zones with chest and back exercises.

Would that contribute to muscle preservation? I think I read something like that somewhere around here. It may be Charles Staley that said that too… I don’t remember what was the article though…

Just do this, it’s very similar to what you’re trying to create. It will save you a lot of time trying to figure out how to set up your program.

Nice program. It does look a bit like what I<d like to try.

But the reason why I want to use an EDT like program is because it is the kind od program that motivates me the most and that I have the most fun to complete, and I actually look forward for my next training session to see if I can beat my PR.

I can deduct from that article that Mixing strength training, lactic acid training and HIIT or some sort of cardio is a very good fat burning approach to training.

I was thinking maybe putting 3 exercises per PR, for 15 or 20 minutes (I’m not decided yet if it is a good idea to put 20 min…) for 2 days, strength compound training for 1 day and 2 HIIT sessions.

Waddaya think?

EDT for Body Composition is the one you are thinking of.

exactly! thanks

That gives me a lot of ideas. I’ll brew a program and I’ll get back to you with it for your comments/flaming
