Resistance training develops your brain, detoxes your body, and builds your physique

As the name suggests, resistance training puts your muscles up against a force that resists movement – think weightlifting, kettlebell training, and bodyweight workouts. Resistance training is typically brief and intense, driving your muscles to generate force from ATP stores instead of relying on oxygen.

Blood Lactate Testing for a Ketogenic Low-Carb Athlete; Is it Viable?

Blood lactate testing for speed athletes; sprinters to endurance, has been used successfully for at least the last 20 years.

However, there is not much written about it for an athlete on a ketogenic low-carb diet.

This article will attempt to answer some questions and lay a framework for a ketogenic low-carb athlete to consider using blood lactate to improve performance through proper training of the two main energy fuel systems.

Keto-Adaptation to Low Carbohydrate Diets

Low-carbohydrate diets remain a fridge concept.

What’s insulin resistance? How does this lead to weight gain?

Low-carb diets are breaking many health records.

You are not not what you eat. You are what you save from what you eat.

High Ketosis, Low Ketosis; Does it matter?

There are various degrees of ketosis depending on your needs. According to the chart below a Glucose:Ketone Index (GKI) below 3 is “Therapeutic ketosis” that the medical profession uses to treat epilepsy and cancer. A range between 3 and 6 would be “Moderate/functional ketosis” and desirable for obesity, type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. Lower on the index, between 6 and 9, is “low ketosis” and used for maintenance, optimal health and weight loss. Any thing above 9 there is no ketosis.

ketosis index

The glucose ketone index published study

From Wikipedia we learn that “Ketosis is a metabolic state in which some of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides most of the energy.

Ketosis is a nutritional process characterized by serum concentrations of ketone bodies over 0.5 m/mol, with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose. It is almost always generalized with hyperketonemia,
