Burn Fat While Building Muscle With This Lactic Acid Workout

  1. *liked* for Bob Marley shirt….lol.
    Let them work in, unless it’s a group of 3 buddies working out together –
    oh hell no. 9 minute rest anyone?

  2. Hey Brad, Can you do some research on the following workouts and comment?
    Hypertrophy Specific Training
    Super Slow (Eccentric and concentric)
    Body By Science (Super hard work out once per 7 – 10 days)

    I find that my best work outs are at the beginning of a new 8 week cycle. I
    switch up the type of exercises and training style and even though I go
    back to lower weight higher reps, I am super sore that week but then my
    body adapts and I don’t get the same effect. I really like the lactic acid
    workout you outline here and think it is very similar to some of the above.

    Any thoughts and comments are appreciated!

    1. I did supersets – not your exact workout but here’s what I did and I really felt it more the next day than usual. AWESOME post Brad, legs supersets kicked my butt!!

      hamstring curls
      quad lifts
      seated leg press
      seated calf press

      hip adductor
      hip abductor

      dumbbell forward lunge

      Then finished up with some step up convicts, couple balance moves off the plyo box, some single leg squats holding dumbbells…and was pouring sweat and beat after an hour of all that.

  3. Do I still need to be in a caloric deficit to achieve both of these goals?
    I thought that in order to lose fat you should be in a calorie deficit or
    if you want to build muscle you should be in a caloric surplus. By the way,
    I’ve voting for you since day 1, hope you win, good luck!

  4. Good luck!! I’ve voted and will keep voting. You always have great material
    and awesome advice and workouts. You truly deserve it!! =D
