    Lance's Bod

    Wasn't sure where to put this, but I found it amusing. Funny presentation...

    :thumbup: Wow, I never knew LA and I had so much in common, I have a mouth, lungs, skin and thighs and we both have MHR's over 200. Guess that's where the similarity ends though

    Skin : Maybe not such low body fat level
    Musculature : Lactic is my name and anaerobic is my game!
    Mouth : I eat 5 meals a day.
    Brain : Smart enough
    Heart : Resting 49, max 212
    Lungs : Polar measured VO2 max 63
    Thighs : Considerably longer femur bone as well, if only I can translate more strength to the torque

    Hopefully I can as good as him, hehe.

    Actually, there's a question lingering in my mind. What is the average ratio of the femur bone to one's height? I find mine long, but I wonder if it is really long.

    My stats:
    Femur Bone : 56cm
    Height : 176
    Ratio : 0.3182

    Never knew much about the "femur" bone" thing, but it IS a big deal to have big feet for running, at least beyond track.....

    But, how much of Lance's condition is training, and how much genetic, let's face it, if he's got the "femur" thing going-- well it's obvious we'll never have a chance....?? I quit.
    Sorry about my comments - I thought you wanted honest feedback.

    Didn't do much for his TT today, eh? I know he'll win, but it's good to have some humbling experiences in racing, too.
