I hypothesize,
when you make your muscles sore
they consume LDL particles
for repair and growth.
You need more cell membranes
to make more cells
or to repair the ones
that already have a problem.
So, I see a lot of studies like this one
for example,
we’re sure not there’s a lot
of resistance training,
if there’s a lot of potential
for micro terra’s and so forth,
you happen to see LDL tends
to go down,
and that’s why I decided
to structure this experiment.
I want to keep everything identical
from one day to the next for 20 days straight,
and so you know this graphic
I’m showing up here
is only the first five days
and those are not duplicate photos.
I literally ate the same way at 10AM,
3PM and 8PM,
which is by the way my baseline diet
for doing the experiment,
and so doing it for 20 days straight
I could then have two interventions
that would be very discretely obvious
keeping everything else as the same
as possible,
and this is what it looked like.
I was taking with a cardio check,
taking my lipids every single morning,
and as you can see at those top two
that’s the total cholesterol
and the LDL,
you can see that the generally hover
about the same.
And then I introduced my first exercise
regime, and this is what happened.
Then I did the second exercise regime,
and this is what happened.
You can see right here,
from both the intervention one
where I was doing a vibration plate
and high intensity interval training
and then of course the more intensive
interval two,
where I did the weight lifting
and I did the vibration plate
and you can see what a difference it made,
and this is shown pretty well
on this chart right here.
The actual drop of LDL at its bottom
was 15% for the first one
and 17% for the second one,
which to me suggests that there may in fact
be some degree of endocytosis
that’s going on with LDL particles.
Still a theory, make no mistake,
but certainly one that I was excited
to try out in that experiment.
