That's the first book I ever bought from Poliquin, but it was first named Manly Weight Loss. TC mentioned this book I believe during the fist few issues of Testosterone.net called Bowlful of Jelly.
Thib from Refined Physique Transformation:
Ever since Coach Poliquin started to use lactate-inducing workouts for cutting phases, these types of workouts have been the gold standard when it comes to lifting for fat loss. An increase in lactate production is linked to a surge in growth hormone output (that lasts up to an hour or two after the completion of the workout) which facilitates the mobilization of stored fat. This means that more fat is burned for energy.
The keys to inducing a maximum lactate production are:
a) Performing a high density of work.
b) Avoiding muscle unloading during a set.
c) Train the whole body or at least a large portion of the body
As long as all these elements are respected, any lactate-inducing workout will work â?? circuits, Tabatas, complexes, German Body Comp, etc. As lactate production is maximized, fat loss will happen. There are no secret workouts: focus on lactate production and you can't go wrong!
I haven't read or seen all the videos on High Performance Training, so I'm interested how he trains for fat loss or is it strictly manipulating peri workout nutrition.
