Our body is continuously producing a wide variety of hormones. Each of these hormones is created for a specific reason, namely to support the effects or regulatory functions of our organs.
These biochemical messenger substances can be released through stress, fear, diet, and sport, such as fighting for or against a condition in the body. Have you ever heard that it is impossible to reduce fat in a specific area of the body?
You have probably been told that you cannot lose fat in just one place; fat reduction is a process that occurs evenly throughout the body.
Fortunately, this assumption is wrong!
The problem is that most people do not know what the cause of the body-specific fat deposits is and, therefore, cannot offer you a solution.
In this Blog, You are Going to Know,
What are the fat-problem areas?
Hips, buttocks, thighs, stomach, swimming rings, and the so-called men’s breasts.
Fortunately, any of these areas can be tackled with targeted training 🙂 but what hormones are causing these unsightly fat build-ups, and how can you combat them?
- Problem zone: hips, thighs, buttocks and man’s breasts
- Causing hormone: estrogen
- Counter hormone: testosterone
- Problem zone: Swimming rings
- Hormone causing: insulin
- Counter hormone: IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factors)
- Problem zone: Stomach
- hormone causing: cortisol
- counter hormone: growth hormone (GH = growth hormone)
How can you stimulate these hormone releases?
Testosterone: Density Training
What does density mean?
Density contains two essential factors: quantity and duration. Quantity/volume stands for your training’s total amount, i.e., how many repetitions (reps) and sets (sets) you have done in a particular workout. The duration only represents the time used for your workout.
There are two methods to increase the density of the training.
Reduce work time. If you do ten sets x 10 reps of bench press, for example, you will achieve a set of 100 repetitions in a time of say 40 minutes. If you could do the same volume in 30 minutes now, you would have done the same job in 25% less time.
Do more work at the same time. You could leave the example above at 40 minutes, but do more work at the same time. That would mean instead of 10 sets x 10 reps. You do 12/15 sets x 10 reps.
Yes, I know there are other ways to increase testosterone levels naturally, but this one is most effective at burning fat.
IGF-1: Dynamic training
Dynamic training consists of a combination of explosive, compound/compound, and hybrid movements.
GH: lactic acid training
Most of the lactic acid is produced during positive movements when you are lifting a weight. Therefore, the concentric movement should last longer than the eccentric (negative) >> slowly lift the weight within 4 seconds, and, as soon as it reaches the top, let it come down quickly without a break.
By over-acidifying the muscles, your body produces more GH to bring it back into balance, and GH is promoted fat burning and muscle growth. You can find more about lactic acid training here.
