    I think you're underestimating the power of the body's aerobic systems. I'm certain that blood doping would improve your 100 meter sprint and as the distance gets longer, the improvements get larger.

    Aren't something like the 4 of the top 5 sprinters in the world from Jamaica, a couple have gotten popped and they all have the same coach? I think I remember that from somewhere.

    So it goes,...

    I've been gone for a while, but I can help here. If you're first, then your job is to take a whole bunch of TP and build a 'landing pad' directly under the seat so the splash is damped out.

    Here's some interesting reading. I'm not sure exactly how much this relates to bike racing. I do know that the pros at The Tour who have access to a lot of water (from the crowd) on hot days are as...

    All of what you've written is correct, but there are some interesting correlations in that book I linked to. The first is that they measured the level of dehydration of many people at a marathon...

    Here's a good book on the subject. It's really pretty interesting. Pro marathoners don't run into hydration issues, because they don't stop to drink and they sweat a lot. The recreational marathoner...

    In all fairness, _you're_ the one who chose New Jersey.

    It's actually more common than not enough, and way more serious. People are told to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and I it's not right. Drink when you're thirsty and train your body to tell you. Your dad...

    I think there is something to this if you were truly in a 'wild west' situation where you could dope 'till your heart's content, but they really can't. They've got to do the micro-dosing thing....

    Completely agree with wolf here. If you think 'rest is a myth', then you've never trained _really_ hard. It's not just about injuries, although they do show up when training fatigued.

    And air...don't forget air. Actually, it seems you may have already gone without it for a little too long already.

    Look, Jack. I'm just some guy typing on a computer. I couldn't give a 1/2 a turd if you agree with me or not. I'm giving good info to the OP.

    To drop weight, specifically if you're trying to get...

    This is the ticket really. Get outside and munch to your heart's content. When traveling with work I end up working with several other guys in a small office. I go outside and eat my lunch salad....

    You'll tend to wake up whenever you are in a habit of waking up. You don't have much control over that. What you do have control over is the time at which you lay down. So shut the computer and TV...

    Sleep. Get plenty of it. 8 hours a night is your minimum, but 10 is better. If you're in the gym that much and using your time productively, then recovery is going to be an issue. Sleeping helps you...

    I go for about 2300/day plus something to compensate for workouts/activity. When I was trying to shed weight, I would target around 1800/day and I'd go to bed hungry every night.

    Recently, I've...

    Marine Corps. infantry...that makes a _massive_ difference. You're essentially a professional athlete. Like any other hard-charging athlete, you're definitely going to need a good whack of carbs to...

    Have you played around with that number? Even doing a pretty severe workout, you're not likely to need >1000 calories of carbs. If you're doing Crossfit or bike intervals, you might burn 500 calories...

    If you're on a ketogenic diet, then you're probably <50g carbs/day and you're right, you run low on glycogen and if you're doing workouts that hit muscle glycogen, then you're not going to have an...

    I had a Jr. get into me at one point. It should have been no big deal, but the little bugger got his handlebars wedged under mine. I eventually got unhooked from him, but I don't particularly care...

    I agree. 1 hour at 13 mph isn't going to burn 600 calories unless you're pulling a wagon full of bricks and a parachute. If you're using numbers off a Garmin, go for about 1/2 of what it says.

    As...
